Torts did not step back from his statements, very telling ones, regarding how he can be on players, and people. So perhaps all that lead to Richards' mulligan.
If he wasn't in top condition I can understand why Torts would have been pissed at him. Richards did not play with a whole lot of energy last year and in the playoffs he was horrible.

I think the Rangers expected him to work well with Nash. That didn't work out well at all. Those two didn't look very good together in preseason either.
