If Brad Richards can return to his old form, then he's an asset to the team. However, I just can't buy into the excuse that he was out of shape. He was average at best in his first season, and he was "in shape" then. Coming into camp out of shape is one thing, but playing an entire season and being unable to get yourself "into shape" during that time is quite another.
Not only did he look slow, but his decision making was awful. For a guy who has been billed as one of the top playmakers in the game, it's pretty damn alarming to see him make so many awful plays and passes to nowhere. His puck distribution on the PP was horrendous as well.
Unless he ends up as a PPG center again, I think it's inevitable that he's bought out. If that's the case, then I'm not pleased with him eating up ice time that could be better used by players who are part of the future.
