The poor dude is gliding all around the ice without a care in the world until he gets the puck. Did you catch him get outmuscled by Plekanec? The guy made Richards look FOOLISH. What a terrible problem he has become, after being so clutch for us and one of our leading scorers. Enough is enough. Either start running on the treadmill every day, going jogging with the team, do cardio exercise or continue to mail it in and pretty much show a huge middle finger to the whole organization and fanbase. The same one who is paying him $12 Million this season for floating around the ice and falling down and getting outmuscled all over the ice. Until he finds his legs, he will continue to be useless. Torts s still completely mismanaging Gaborik's game He is not a good player against the boards. We need him to be the one that shoots, not carry the puck in the zone. If these two start producing, we will finally have our first view of a true NYR contender night in, night out.
Best post regarding Richards i've read on here in a long long time. Finally a fellow hockey player who understands it.

Thanks for this post.
