Marty St. Louis looked the same as he does today. What does that guy do to keep his game at the same level? Richards has been working out with Marty who lives in CT during the summer.
Yeah, I watched that game 6 yesterday. Richards was making quick, great decisions on the powerplay, setting up cross ice one-timers, and wasn't being the stupid, slow beaver he is today. Amazing how much he has gone downhill.

(Of course, the overall talent level on that Tampa PP was very high)
