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.
As he is very consistent in these departments you have bolded and he's making the money he makes, he is an embarrassment to the franchise and every Rangers fan . His game is not close to being what it is on average for him. It's deflating rapidly. The article yesterday makes him sound like a head case spending as much time on an analysts couch as he is on the ice FFS! People have zero sympathy for a guy making $9 million with insecurity issues.

He should be benched just for making those quotes. Get out there and play every shift like you actually have some pride in yourself.
