At the end of the day Richards is a better fit on Giroux's wing than Hartnell. His hockey sense alone makes him better than Scott. Having him in that position alone would bring defensive stability to the top line and I certainly think Richards has the ideal hockey sense to play with guys like G and Jake. At this point if Richards came to Philly he's a guy you can slot just about anywhere and he'd succeed. Has he declined? No doubt but he'd bring options through the line up, give stability to the second PP unit and actually would be great in a reduced role compared to his first go around in Philly. I don't see LA buying him out, he's a guy coming off 2 concussions and looks fatigued due to it. A good offseason and this whole buy out "richards" garbage is dust in the wind.
