I really hope that the Flyers (Homer) addresses the third line. If he's not gonna bring in a legit D-first centerman, then Richards should be that guy. And while Richards has been put in that position before, he has never been given that duty for an entire season.

There's also a difference between having that title and actually doing it. Richards sometimes looks for offense first, and I'd like it if there was an actual plan (ie let these other guys worry about offense, you worry about shutting people down).

Assuming our PP turns it around next year, Richards could get ~30 PP points and ~30 SH/EV points and I'd be totally fine with that, so long as his defensive game comes first. Part of the problem is the revolving door of linemates that he's had.
