If there's anything they should have it's depth scoring.

If Richards and Gaborik were playing up to even half their potential, nobody would be talking about depth scoring.

The biggest difference between this year and last year is they were scoring first last year and they won an inexplicable high number of one-goal games.
Bingo.

Gaborik and Richards are receiving their fair share of criticism, but it never ceases to amaze me how that usually filters to complaints about how the bottom 6 isnt playing well above their heads and scoring goals for this team.
