Mike Richards: Built Like an Eight Year Old

http://www.courierpostonline.com/art...-1-series-edge

Quote:
"He's our leader and we're going to go as far as he takes us," Laperriere said of Richards. "When your leader just goes all out like that it's contagious. I'm the oldest on the team (36) and I get goose bumps when I see him hit and give his body up like that."

He's got the worst body on the team but he puts it in front of anything. He might not be flashy like (Sidney) Crosby on the other side of the state but he's as effective or even more."

Asked if he could define what he meant by the "worst body on the team," Laperriere quipped, "He's built like my 8-year-old son."
Pure gold from Lappy. Check out the Carcillo quote as well...

Regards,
Rick

Funny quote. Glad to see we've got the 2-1 edge right now.

Lappy is definitely my favorite player on the team, besides Carcillo of course.

Guys like Laperriere are perfect for the lockerroom. It's hard to stress when you're playing well and have funny guys like Lappy getting the yucks.

Oh..... there's a snip to archive for future reference. So many punchlines open for exploration .

Lappy is hard not to like no matter fan affiliation. Cool customer and legit warrior.

I do too. I liked him before, but after watching him this year, he's becoming one of my favourites.

While not a defenseman, he's brought the same warrior spirit Jason Smith established with the team.

You win with guys like Lappy in my opinion.

while this is quite comical, it is just another question surrounding richy. he has been a professional hockey player for multiple years now. there is no excuse not to be in tip-top shape.

I wish we had drafted Lappy and he'd been here his whole career.

Did you forget the "sarcastic" emoticon or are you serious?

Jesus, I am sure that Lappy was just referencing that fact that Richards will never be 6'2" 235 and merely chose to do it in a hilarious way...

Also, Mike needs to be wary of this guy:



"8 year-olds, Dude. 8 year-olds."
