Glad to see him putting up points too. I still have my doubts though that he's reached some sort of turning point given that 8 of his 9 points since the trade have been in blowouts. I'll admit that he looks better even in the games recently where he hasn't put up points, but if he still can't produce when the games are tight you gotta seriously consider dumping him.

Also, for those who claim it was Gaborik dragging him down, hard to deny there's a correlation but I don't see how he could be responsible for such a dramatic drop in Richard's play. Maybe now that Richards is playing 3rd line center he's facing weaker opponents?
