This is a reasonable argument. But who would you want taking the faceoffs? Halpern? Miller? The problem is, even in a diminished capacity, Richards is still probably the best two-way center on the roster.

It'd be awesome if we could ease his ice time as he (hopefully) gets his legs under him, but the dilemma then is, who?
