He's a good two-way player, but he's much more of a playmaker than finisher, and with the lack of finishers around, can't expect him to dominate offensively.

It's true that he hasn't been an offensive dynamo, but nobody expected that from him. He was the playoff MVP because he went red-hot in the Spring, but it's not the kind of offensive production that we should reasonably expect from him. He's still on pace as a good two-way third line center. I think he'll be ready at some point in 2014.

Richards has a cap hit of $6.67, whereas Lindberg is at $0.67, so that will save us exactly $6. The money would be used to give raises to Callahan, Girardi, Stralman and Lundqvist.

I wish that over the summer we'd trade Brassard plus either Zuccarello (replaced by Fast or Kristo) or Del Zotto (replaced by McIlrath or Allen).
