RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Last season's huge free-agent acquisition had an up-and-down first year in New York, but he managed to piece together a solid season with 25 goals and 41 assists. The 32-year-old shoud feel more comfortable as he enters his second year with the Rangers and will likely improve upon last season's totals as he likely will center a line with newcomer, Rick Nash. Richards was probably taken a little too high in fantasy drafts last year, but savvy owners should be able to parlay his shaky 2011-12 season into solid value in their 2012-13 drafts.

2011-12

Richards averaged 71 points over the span of a decade between Tampa Bay and most recently, Dallas. Now, he's in the big market of New York, and all signs point to his continued high level of production. Richards fills a clear need as the No. 1 center and finds himself in an ideal situation with sniper Marian Gaborik on his side. The only cautionary measure to consider with Richards is that he's had concussion issues before. However, he's had no recent problems and should be targeted early on in fantasy drafts.

2010-11

Richards racked up 91 points (24G, 67A), including massive totals (13G, 27A) on the power play. He recorded big minutes as Dallas' No. 1 center, increasing his ice time as the season wore on with the struggles from Mike Ribeiro. He's a liability in his own end, so knock off a bit of value if your league rewards plus/minus and/or penalty minutes, but he's an elite fantasy scorer when healthy, and should enjoy another productive season on Dallas' top line.

2009-10

A pair of wrist injuries ended Richards' season way too early, but he was productive (16 G, 48 points in 56 games) when healthy. He gives Dallas excellent scoring depth down the middle with Mike Ribeiro, and will be a fixture on Dallas' top power play unit. There's a big season here, approacing his halycon days with Tampa Bay.

2008-09

Richards started to re-emerge after being dealt to Dallas, though finding him a pair of scoring wingers remains a priority. Mike Modano may be shifted to a wing to play alongside Richards, but Richards' ample power play time should result in a return to form no matter his linemates. He's a good bet to approach 80 points.

2007-08

Richards took one for the team last season and didn't complain. Coach John Tortorella moved Marty St. Louis up to Vinny Lecavalier's line and both of those men had career years. Richards, on the other hand, carried the weight of his massive new contract like a concrete block around his neck and he ended up with the first big step backwards of his career. He'll rebound this year but his production will be limited by the lead weights who skate on his wings. The Bolts just don't have the cap room to buy themselves a real talent for that spot, so Richie will have to settle for re-treads like Jan Hlavac and Michel Ouellet. The only saving grace lies with Ouellet, with whom Richards clicked during his junior days. Richards will once again play in all situations and deliver on the power play; time will tell if he can also pot lots at even strength.

2006-07

We have long maintained it is Richards, and not the slick Lecavalier, who is the Bolts' best player and last year he proved it. He led the team in scoring for the third time in five seasons and set a team record with 68 assists. His 91 points was a career best and it earned him a five-year, $39 million contract. While we sometimes worry about players resting on their laurels a bit after signing big deals, we know this won't be the case with Richie -- he's a humble and hard-working player who will never sit back for the ride. Richards is a top-10 fantasy player whose value rises even further in leagues that count power-play points. And in head-to-head leagues, this guy is pure gold as there are few players who can match his overall consistency.

2005-06

Raise your hand if you've ever heard of or remember Alex "Fats" Delvecchio of the historic Detroit Red Wings? Richards is this generation's Delvecchio, a franchise player toiling behind a more heralded teammate (Fats was second to you guessed it, a guy named Gordie Howe). While he has a lot of years to go to prove he belongs in the same class as Hall-of-Famer Delvecchio, Richards is the kind of guy who might just do it. He's a gifted playmaker who is on the verge of a 90-point season, and who knows, this might be the year he does it.
