Does this front office actually think this team can win a cup as is with a new coach? That's the only reason to buy out Richards later as opposed to now. Good ****ing luck. I want some of what they're smoking.
AV's idea of checking center wants his 3C(Malhotra) to start sub 40% of shifts in the offensive zone. If Stepan takes that role, I doubt he breaks 50 pts. It's classic catering to Richards so he'll put up respectable point totals, despite being the inferior talent at this point in his career. AKA the Sedin effect.
