Brassard 48.2% (365 taken)
Stepan 46.5% (854 taken)

He's our number 2 faceoff guy and is exactly league average (excluding Miller for small sample and in all likelihood 50% is above league average when you take into account he is often going against num 1/2 guys who i presume as a collection have a league avg FO% > 50)

If you want to complain about faceoffs complain about Stepan because he's been brutal on them yet that somehow gets neglected because of his great play otherwise. Complaining about Richards of faceoffs is simply selection bias (remembering only the ones he loses clean such as yesterday) and trying to find things wrong with his game since overall he's played terribly this year.
