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
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 .
