A few of the post-game articles that I've read stated that Torts actually benched Richards for most of the third period against the Flyers. I didn't even notice TBH. Says a lot.
Whoever said that Richards is being grossly misused (underused) is right. Is this what they're paying him for, to center the third and fourth lines? Maybe he's hiding an injury, maybe he's getting depressed... honestly, just trying to give him an out here. After seeing what Crosby's been going through, maybe Richards is still experiencing post concussion symptoms but attributing it to other things. Who knows. A few years back, he was struggling to get through games and thought he was depressed. Turns out he had mono.
