And the fact of the matter is, he didn't even play well. If he can play that poorly (which I doubt he replicates) and still score at a 60 point season pace isn't that a good sign he will most likely be better?
Games 41-46 are the only reason he is on that pace. 11 of his 34 points came in games 41-46. Before he went on that little tear (which abruptly ended once the playoffs started) he had 23 points in 40 games. So for most of the season I guess you could say he played like a 40-45 point player.
Also, in my opinion, its fairly easy to accumulate some secondary assists on goals you really had nothing to do with. I can't knock Richards for getting secondary assists but I wanted to throw that out there. What Im really trying to say is that he didn't create enough offense, or look like the scoring threat that many other 60 point players look like on a consistent basis.
