Stephen Weiss is an option. Richards, to me, does not look anything like a 60 point center. Also injuries.
Why? Lindberg is not 20 years old. He has been playing for a few years against men in the SEL. They will say all the right things, such as they don't want to rush him etc. But I can almost bet they want to see him in NY ASAP next season.
Miller is another option after another off-season of training.
I am hoping they amnesty Richards and ship out Powe and Pyatt. Either replace them from within or go out and get some more snarl for the bottom-6. Players like Thomas, Fasth, Lindberg, Kreider and Miller will need spots sooner or later.
I believe you are right and the thought was to have Fast and Lindberg over immediately and that they could make an impact as soon as they are in the lineup. But we have no forward spots open especially with Kreider and Miller fighting for spots.
