He's selling out to score goals and has sacraficed fundamental hockey. Whatsmore, he's had a few spats with his coach and Hartnell. he's not the kind of guy I want on my team.
I see. But nothing out of the ordinary for a coach to be hard on a young talent, especially demanding more on the defensive end. Not sure if that equates to sacrificing hockey fundamentals for points. But I'm not following PHI, so can't speak from much information other than pure stats, which looks impressive.

Richards has been very valuable, and already served his ultimate purpose of contributing to the Cup run.. but I think this might turn into a sensitive and recurring issue for yrs to come, both due to Schenn young age and Richards contract length. We will see.
