I believe in Brad Richards.

I know I'm in the minority here, but last year Richards had 25G and 41A for a total of 66 points, a solid season. As god awful as he's been this year, he's got 16 points in 29 games. Which, if extended over an 82 game season (assuming a full training camp, which would help Richards), he would end up with 45 points. A bad year for his standards, but not an AWFUL, DREADFUL, INVISIBLE year like he's often accused of having.

Richards will turn this around come playoff time, and will be much better next year after an entire training camp. He was money last year in the playoffs for us, people conveniently seem to forget that. He also has a Stanley Cup, and is a proven leader and winner, he deserves more respect.
