From a long time kings fan's perspective, I'd keep Richards.

Yeah, I still believe that we gave up too much in acquiring Richards, but Richards is just a great fit as our 2C.

Believe it or not, on the day the trade went down, I posted to my fellow kings fans not to be surprised if Simmer and Schenn both outscore Richards individually in any given year, and I still believe that to be true. And believe me, letting Simmer go was very tough as he's my second all time favorite king (Lappy being first of course). I still have hopes of Simmer returning to the kings, and wearing his #17, but if that doesn't happen, I'll still be happy as long as we still have Richards wearing his #10.
