Isn't Richards a #1 center. I think
can execute a deal but if his value is as high as live in the Now said then maybe not. But if it's lower and they are willing to risk it cause they are doubtful of him then maybe we can.
Who is 'we'? You don't work for DL and fortunately he's a whole lot smarter. Richards isn't going anywhere. This would be the 3rd week of training camp, which is why he's played better every game. He had a good game last night and withouit his work on the point neither of those PP goals goes in.
He wasn't the top line center who took 2 bad penalties late and along with Penners' penalty cost this team 2 points.
Richards is not a number one Center. And the way he started this season..It's debatable if he is even a number two.
Yes he is a top 6 center, given the full scope of what that job entails, esp on the Kings. His primary job is to take pressure off Kopi and provide puck possession time in the O zone and scoring chances, which he did last night (and Jewels from the Crown website had that stat up). I guess that depends on how you define what a top tier center 's job it. And if you are using 7 games in a season without the benefit of training camp, then you need to stick to checkers or a sport you can understand.
