Remembering Kovalev--sticking Larmer on his line did Alex a lot of good. Steve was a very heady hockey player--very productive offensively and excellent in his own end and positioning himself. He was constantly yapping at Kovalev about where he needed to be.

Which is to say Richards has been somewhat of a disappointment at least stats wise his first two seasons. He did help MDZ adjust better last year and playing him on a line with Kreider and Boyle right now does not seem like a bad combination. He might do for Kreider something along the same as Larmer did for Kovalev. To me Chris still has an awfully lot to learn. Missing the training camp experience probably hurt him more than anyone. An on ice in game tutor might be exactly what he needs.
