Hence the irony that you are accusing me of not understanding your context when I'm providing a counter with context of my own that you are failing to understand bc it isnt being spelled out for you. Oh look a goal finally. Only took an entire game against a brand new NHLer.
Except you're not. Sorry. You're making an assumption based on a small sample size. He may be an upgrade over Brassard and Pouliot except Pouliot isn't a center so now you're just trying to add players to justify your statement. Is he better than Richards? Debatable and I would say based on career numbers he isn't at his level. He'll have to give me more than 29 games before I can decide on that. The real irony lies in the fact that you assume anyone who isn't considered a legitimate first line or star player would continue to produce at their same level after joining the Rangers. You do know that is almost as rare as a unicorn in central park right?

Outside of Nash and Gaborik there really haven't been many players in recent years that have come to the Rangers and produced at their career level or above it.
