But why should it be held against Richards that he gets more PP time?
Richards is a good PP player. Getting more points on the PP doesn't make you less effective.
I understand, if Stastny played that extra 300 minutes on the PP, you can argue he would have had more points, but he didn't.
Richards is a big reason, along with MZA, that the PP is vastly improved this year. To me, Richards bringing it on the PP is a positive.
And if it was the choice of letting Richards go and signing Stastny or NOT signing Stastny, I'd prefer to just buyout Richards and roll Stepan/Brassard.
No reason to overpay Stastny on the open market, who hasn't had a 70+ point season in years, at ~ $7.5M. We will have another situation where we acquire a center at a significant cost who will only put up 55-60 points. I'd rather save that cap for when a game breaking asset, if it ever does happen, hits the market.
