A very good friend of mine knows the guy that is training Richards this off season..do you know Richards body fat right now...I guess 8%...when in fact it is 17%. If he is hell bent on a rebound why would he let himself go..guy cashed out and the only ******* not willing to come to gripes with it is Sather
17% body fat isn't letting himself go? Pretty average in fact. I bet most NHL guys are somewhere around 12-18%. 8% is about as low as the body can go while still being healthy. I doubt many NHLers could play at 8% without getting hurt quite a bit. I think he was caught with his pants down last season. Had no faith in there being a season and didnt put in the time during the offseason and never recovered. I think a fresh start with a new coach can be good for him. At this point we need him to be a 3c and I think he can give us 50 points from that position. Is it the 80-90 points we signed him for? No, but its better than nothing.
