DL has to be shopping RIchardson, he just has to be. That said he simply is an extra forward at this point who we have more than enough talent to due without.

Richardson's name is on the Stanley Cup.

Thank you for your time with us Richardson.

Now, trade or waive.


One of the players who is NHL ready and could be a really good add for us is Kozun. He can skate pretty well and is solid all around. He has pretty darn good hands, is a good finisher and also gets under the skin of opponents.

Don't like Kozy because of his size? Bring up Andy Andy. He hits hard, plays great two way hockey. Pisses people off and is tenacious in every zone. He doesn't score a ton but then that isn't really his thing. Given the choice I would give him another year on the farm but he is a bottom 6er that was an overage draft pick that can play and will likely be a staple of our bottom 6 eventually.

Waive Richardson (trade etc) and we have room to call a kid or two up from time to time if we want without upsetting the apple cart. Cup of tea for a kid now and then is a good thing for everyone involved.

It lights a fire under the butts of the established players. Rewards our kids who are working hard and shows the rest of them that if they do the same that they will get to play at least one game in the NHL and that is every single hockey playing kids dream. Play in the AHL and it is so close you can taste it.

Bye Richardson.
