Richards wasn't even half as good at the defensive side of the puck as Gomez/Drury were.

To me, he is an even bigger bust than those two.
Gomez was/is not a good defensive center. When the puck hit Drury's stick, it would literally explode. Richards still controls the puck and makes plays here and there. I think he is on the cusp. He also took it another level last year in the playoffs. ECF. Where did the Rangers get with Gomez and Drury?
