Usually when a player can still skate well but can't seem to bury a puck or connect on a pass he might be putting too much pressure on himself or is a tad snake bitten, but Richards is looking worse and worse every game.

You know what it is for me? I used to watch him a lot in Tampa and then caught a good amount of Dallas Stars games when he played there and he was just great. Good skater, excellent passer, his vision was amazing, and he well deserved his 90+ point seasons. He looks completely different now. His skating is abysmal and sloth-like, he makes these no-look passes every game that don't make any sense and most of the time don't even land on anyone's stick, and he's so weak on the puck that it's disgusting. I'm still rooting for him. I don't think he's hit Drury status at all, but for the love of God, he needs to try to reach down inside himself and pull out the old Richards that i used to watch and say; "wow, I'd love him in a Ranger jersey."
