Richards has not been great. But he is nowhere near as bad as he looks in our system. Same goes with Gaborik.

You can't have the Nash-Richards-Gaborik line constantly trying score by cycling down low in the zone. That isn't the lines strength.

That line is going to be about scoring on the rush and passing into the slot for shots.

Our system is not going to exploit that.

The only way Richards is going to look good in this system is if he is playing with two big wingers who can bully in the corners for him.

Also, Cally cannot play with Step. Cally is not a finesse player and can't act as a playmaker. Cally is, often times, getting the puck and he doesn't know what to do with it. The worst thing you can do with Cally is give him time to overthink a play.

Cally should be playing with Miller. Nash should be Step

Krieder should be tried with Richards/Gabby.
