Congrats to Brad Richards! 7 GWG in these playoffs and a class act all the way (4 PIMs in the playoffs in total, and ONLY 12 in the regular season!). It's no fluke he was selected to team Canada; the guy WAS HIGHLY underrated and you could say this was his coming-out party. Plus he's only 24 so the best is yet to come.
I played Minor Hockey against Brad and believe me, he was as dominent then as he is now. Way to go, much deserved. Few people may know this, but during the start of the playoffs, a former teammate and friend of Brad, Brent Allen, lost his life in a car accident here on the island, so for him to also play through that pain of that loss must also have been difficult. In an interview after the game with Ron MacLean, Brad did give a shout out to the Allen family. He is truely a class act and this is just one of many awards to come his way!!!!
