I don't think Mike Richards was traded because of the type of hockey player he was, he was traded because of the type of person he was becoming. Holmgren clearly ws pained in trading them, but felt like they needed a change of scenery to get themselves in order. Richards was a great player, but like all things, it had to come to an end. We really should just let him and that trade go, there isn't anything we can do about it two years after the fact. I have moved on from the trades. I was pissed when they happened, but what can I do? Also we don't know of any of the things going on behind the scenes.
He didn't get brought up because someone was clinging onto him. He got brought up because someone felt the need to write some revisionist history about his time here.
