Each of the players you mentioned failed for different reasons, although some did have initial success. I'm not sure what the case is with Brad Richards. I'm starting to think that there is lingering problems suffered from the concussion in his last season in Dallas. The Kaleta hit might have instigated things?

Regardless, his play has dropped beyond belief. Also, he's no dummy and probably knows he's a prime candidate for amnesty buyout. I'm sure it's given him even less incentive to dig deep and find his game.
Drury, Richards and Redden were not young. They were all 30+ when they signed, no?
