I'm all for hoping Richards get better . He was Ok last year , and I haven't forgotten the last minute heroics and GWG he had . He had 15 pts in 20 PO games . These are acceptable numbers . His play away from the puck , along the boards in winning battles is bad . His play on the PP last year and this one is bad . His skating which was so good he was a mid third round pick after winning every award in the Q is even worse . His country club golf wine aficionado mentality and too cool for school emotions are not who I want wearing a letter on this team . Wreaks of nepotism from Torts his buddy , and that same coddling has only caused him to play him where he shouldn't be on a top line with Nash, who clearly plays his most consistent hockey with Hagelin on the other wing and anyone but Richards centering him .
He is another in a long line of
ESPO
DIONNE
LAFLEUR
HODGE
KAMESKY
GOMEZ
DRURY
washed up players who have past cups and are now playing great golf in westchester and East End and making Wall Street friends and padding their portfolios .
