That's why you've seen idiots claiming the Krejci hit was dirty when (I believe) even he stated it was perfectly fine.

Not a Flyers fan, not a Habs fan (despite my location), and Richards is easily my favorite player in the league. Everything you'd want in a forward: skill, heart, phenomenal hockey IQ, physicality, etc.
