I am troubled and concerned by Brad Richards weak performance defensively... Extremely annoying if he goes into a Redden-like shell.

I am definietly not one that throws out excuses for Torts/Sullivan -- I think they have neglacted certain areas of the game completely since coming here -- but I am mean sometimes its like being short handed when Richards is out there on the ice. Doug Weight was better than this his last three years for the Islanders. WTF in plain French.

And Gabby is also as valuble as Pyatt or someone when not scoring. 7m worth?

What do you do about it?

To start with I still think our first priority must be to target a right handed offensive minded D. He could help to cover for these guys defecits. It is extremely important for Gabby to play with D who can move the puck. Richards would benefit from playing with a D that could help him get past the netural zone.
