Then he has to be a player that can fit in the system, let alone learn the system right away in case of a injury and he has to plug in fast. Bottom line moving Richardson just to move him makes no sense at all.
Actually, a better question is what's the benefit of keeping him? Richie will always be a healthy scratch, or so it seems. Sutter referred to Toffoli as the 14th forward, but yet, when there was an opportunity for our 13th forward, he gets passed up. I guess we'll know for sure how DS feels about Richie if and when 44DD get a start at a forward position over him.

In regards to waiver claim...I thought we should have picked up Eager and waived Richie. It seems to make more sense.
