But I feel like even though we have a lot of centers, they're all probably playing one line too high. I don't feel like we have a first line center...maybe Lombardi was supposed to be that guy but I doubt he ever plays again. Don't we need to dump some of our centers to make room for a game-changer?

I dunno what kind of dude Richards is...if he wants to go wherever he can make the most money or if he's willing to take a little less to play for an organization he likes or in a situation he likes. But he seems to be the only bona-fide first line center UFA out there this summer. I know it probably won't happen but imagine what kind of statement it would make if the owners plunked down some cash on him!
