You don't got from 41 goals to what Gaborik has done so far this season just because the bottom six on your team got worse. The system is the same as last year for him but he's playing with Nash or a much improved Stepan most of the time. He's not playing well this year. Richards, I don't think even needs to be explained at this point. He wasn't nearly this bad last year. He looks absolutely lost and thats not all because of coaching.
Ding ding ding! Finally, some semblance of common sense around here! I was beginning to think like everyone else around here that Richards and Gaborik sucking nite after nite had everything to do with Tort's coaching and nothing to do with them just plain old stinking it up!!
