I agree. I thought he got a raw deal on some nights. I would have liked him in the lineup. His wheels were always turning and he was always irritating the opponents. Great 4th liner. it appears vancouver is slotting him on their THIRD line though--can't fault him for wanting to go with the playing time. CAN make fun of Vancouver for putting him there.

Richardson is one of our best 4th liners. *was
On the other hand, there's this. I wish we could mismanage our way to the SCF/WCF every year I can't believe there's people actually upset about losing Richardson...did you see his price tag? You can't run around dropping over a million on every 4th liner you like, especially this year. There are a million Brad Richardsons in this league. He is easily replaced for cheaper/internally/etc. This roster spot is by far the least of our worries.
