They go through the neutral zone far too slow. Which is what should be expected when its either Richards or del zotto doing it. Try having a guy like Hags or Gaborik bring it through center ice.

Not having a true point guy is killing them though. Richards back there is pointless. He doesn't have the shot to be a threat and he can't skate well enough to get angles to setup passes, or recover if girardi miss handles the puck.

They don't need a guy who is a great scorer back there. They need a guy with a good low hard shot who can get the puck on net through traffic. And can skate well enough to open things up.
