Brad Richards has been ranked the 28th best player in The Hockey News’ Top 50 players poll.
THN polled five players from each NHL team on who they thought were the top five players in the league today. After tabulating the votes, they ended up with a ranking of the top 50 players in the NHL.
So far they have released numbers 50-26.
Richards has 18g, 27a this season.
Marian Gaborik was ranked #31.
…while Richards deserves to be on the list, no way he should be ahead of Gaborik.
…Richards is in another little funk as he’s goalless in his last eight games. Maybe the recently released Olivia Munn pictures (warning: sexually explicit photos) have him thinking about what he’s missing again.
Ken Campbell at The Hockey News also gives his thoughts on all 30 NHL teams including the Rangers.
