Brad Richards the Missing Piece

Standard Spin: Brad Richards has been a fantasy producer for years, he's also a Stanley Cup champion and a gold medal winner at the  Olympics.  With a goal and assist on Friday, he is currently tied for second in scoring on the Rangers, with 13G, 15A and 28PTs.  Whereas last year the Rangers were a bubble team, this year they lead the East as they prepare for the Winter Classic.  Looking at the the Rangers' line-up, the obvious difference from last year is Brad Richards.  Sure Gaborik is healthy and deserves a big part of the credit, but with Richards the Rangers have an experienced winner and leader.
