I think the acquisition of Brad Richards was a good move.

Thinking ahead, this team will acquire some speed. It has to, if you think about it, as you could not possibly have a guy like Kreider being held back because of linemates who cannot skate.

Watch the way Richards skated with the Stars. He was rushing the puck and making great passes. I wonder why people would believe that, suddenly, he lost that part of his game. He didn't.

This team is in transition. They are going to be a fast team, at least the top line will be. Blazing fast. It doesn't happen right away, but it will happen.

The sign of having an open mind is being able to change it. I used to consider that Brandon Dubinsky was integral to the team. I am not as convinced of that now as I was even 6 months ago. I do however believe that Brad Richards will improve as the team improves.
He was a very good acquisition.
