The trades are working out right now, yes. Clowe is a force all the time and Brassard has looked good (though I wasn't too impressed with him against CAR.) However, Brad Richards is suddenly playing VERY GOOD hockey. Like, borderline great at times. Right now he's looking like he did last season, and I personally think that's why our offense seems more potent all of a sudden.

It also helps that for two of the three games since all the trades, Hank put up two of his best games of the season in a row.
Agreed. Richards has made one or two absolutely miraculous passes each game for the last handful. That's exactly what NYR needs from him. Also, yeah, Hank seems to be back to last year's level after hovering just below it until recently.

It does seem odd that Richards seemed to come to life and Hank seemed to switch to god-mode right after the trade though.
