Richards is a concern for sure. I don't think its for lack of effort, or any of the silly things about his mind not being on hockey. The guy is a total professional, and a big-game player.

With that said, theres 2 big glaring issues here:

1. He looks like hes been skating in mud all season
2. His decision making has gotten progressively worse

First order of business is Tortorella should tell him that hes going to sit for a week if he delivers another erratic drop pass.

With all that said, I still have faith in him. He has a track record of playing better when the games get more important.
