He's a very good player, and I actually still wish we still had him, but he's certainly lost a step and had the Kings not won the Cup, he would be criticized to no end for failing to live up to expectations in LA.
LA is a more defensive team, though. Richards is breaking down and the end of his contract might be ugly, but he still would have been an upgrade at 1C in Toronto and been a fan favorite these past two years.
