On paper, no you haven't. But having several players that bring the same thing to the team (to a lesser extent) for the same price is pretty close. Otherwise you will have Richards, and likely lesser players playing where Simmonds and Schenn are playing because of salary cap constraints and other roster issues. Do you want the one guy who can do it all and have two guys out there that are just meh, or do you want the three guys that bring all those aspects of the game to the team but to a lesser extent?
Here is a good way to judge the trade...right now would you trade Schenn, Simmonds, and a third for Richards?
