The players that Richards gets compared to most of all seem to be Ricci and Brind'amour.

The players I've heard Carter compared to most are Modano & Sundin. I'm not saying he's going to be that good, but I think he'll play a style more similar to them. Carter is 6'3 200 lbs and can really fly. He appears to be more of a goal scorer than a playmaker, although that may be because of his linemates.

Richards is much more of a playmaker.
Wow, Carter & Richards in Philly, Parise in NJ, Ovechkin(probably) & Fleury in Pittsburgh - where the heck are our future stars???

John, one more question - do you like the look of Philly's defense? Do you think Clarke will trade for more muscle on the backline?
