His lack of flow just ends up with him standing around somewhere and then trying to jump back into the play. No wonder he looks slow, he is not in the flow. The entire Rangers offense does not flow most of the time, and don't tell me that it is completely the fault of Brad Richards.

I'm not sticking up for his play, not at all, but the whole team has no cohesion. It's a team game, and I see no creative think as you go at the speed of skates play building, play making.

Pretty much.

This is a dog eat dog fanbase though, so consider that. He hasnt even played 100 games yet and we're already talking amnesty buyout. He was a major reason for our top 5 season last year.
