Our system is not really doing him any favors either, as at the end of the day this is a dump and chase team not a puck possession team (neutral zone).
There are still 4-5 passes Richards makes a game that make me go "wow, noone on our squad even thinks to do that last year". No, that does not include the random centering passes to noone. He's scored some dn clutch goals too.
Question: Do you think we can ever become as puck possession team?
