No excuses for Richards. You get paid to be a No. 1 center, start acting like a No. 1 center.

It's not like Richards has been setting up his "grinders" with gimme chances that they're blowing. He's not setting anything up. Hagelin's set up for his goal against the Jackets was nicer than anything Richards has done in weeks.
He's not "setting anything up" because why bother? Even if he did, his wingers couldn't finish. Brad is trying to do everything he can to score. That includes not passing the puck and trying to do it himself. It's painfully obvious for anyone who's ever played hockey. If you can't trust your linemates, you try to do far too much yourself.
