I have absolutely no problem with putting Richards back with Toews and Nash should things not work out. My thought is that on international ice Toews and Nash could use a linemate with tons of speed, and that's Hall. It helps that his offensive game would seemingly gel with theirs. That frees Richards to basically be a more experienced Marchand on the fourth line, while also providing some first or second unit PK time.

We could find someone else, which can be said for every single player on Canada. I was really impressed by Seguin's performance in Europe during the lockout, and I really like his skating and proven chemistry with Bergeron. By no means is he a lock though.

He has been working out with Crosby during the offseason. Could certainly be a decent X factor for the Olympics.
