Not much love for Richardson, it is just that he has proven to be a good energy/utility player. He is the perfect utility forward because he can play any position on any line. He is the Drewiske of forwards.

We paid a 2nd for him, he's played a lot of games for us, and has playoff experience and his name on the cup. It is also easier to trade a forward. He has value around the league, but Hickey didn't.

It would have been nice if we could have kept him, but we just didn't have the room to carry 8 defensemen. Two spare forwards and one spare defenseman is the standard configuration.
