He just hasn't been all that great. You can count me in with the group that thinks having Carter on his wing just doesn't seem to work very well. That combined with Carcillo on the other wing leaves a lot to be desired. Richards is the least of my worries in the long run. He'll be fine.

First few games. No biggie. I didn't think he looked disinterested. Just shaking the cobwebs off maybe. Also, Carter isn't really helping. They need to be split up. Carter needs to play center.

I don't see disinterest. Charged with shutting down Crosby takes a lot of focus.

Richards-Carter don't work very well together, but they had a few good scoring chances once JVR was moved up with them.

Richards is never disinterested. Hes just a complicated player to figure out because the heart is always there, but the skill set isn't.

It's funny how when someone criticizes Richards everyone passes the blame or says it's only 2 games but anyone else is open game. Hell, Carter gets thrown under the bus in a thread that never mentioned his name. For the record, I don't think anything is wrong with Richards but it's just funny how people will do anything to make him invincible.

Why don't we leave JVR on the top line with Richards and Carter? Carcillo does not belong there and may compliment Giroux and Zherdev by doing the dirty work.

I agree. That line was looking pretty sexy in the third period last game.

Yea if we leave the lines like that, get Pronger back, and put Bobs in net I would be excited to see what we can do.

We should roll JVR-Richards-Giroux.

Then put Carter with Carcillo and Zherdev

If Carcillo is in the top 9 it has to be with Richards IMO, I think Carter and Carcillo in any capacity is not going to work. I would flip flop Carcillo and JVR personally.

No, he doesn't. All that people are saying is that Richards and Carter on the same line doesn't work. Because it doesn't. That's not really their fault.
Crosby and Malkin on the same line doesn't work too well, either.

I want the kids on Richards' wings.

Whatever the lines are, I expect a big game tonight since it is the banner raising ceremony. Everyone should be fired up! Let's go Flyers!!!

Well, for one it is hard to tell if anyone is really disinterested, especially when on Friday it looked like half the team didn't want to play.

You can say the same thing about Richards being thrown under a bus when people say Carter is not producing/looking good when Richards is at center.

I don't think it is funny how people come to Richards defense. I find it great, because it really shows how good of a player he is and what impact he has on this team. Obviously there will be people at both extremes hating/loving him no matter what.

I wouldn't appear all that interested on my off day between games either, most likely.

I guess working together to hook-up with the ladies doesn't always translate to working together well on the ice.

Wait a second, this might all make sense to me now.

When they hit on ladies, who is the wingman and who is the main man? What if - when they hit on girls - Carter is the primary and Richie picks up the friend(s)?

Maybe Richards really should be on Carter's wing!

My mind is blown.

Carcillo doesn't win puck battles though. Seriously who's going to worry about Dan Carcillo when Carter has the puck. Personally I'de like to see Carter with Leino, as his ability to slow the game down off the rush and hold the puck would help open up shooting lanes for Carter IMO.

Leino already does that for Briere, and if I'm being honest, I prefer Briere's shooting ability to Carter's.

Richards does look sluggish. He ran his hockey camp, but I think he took it easy this summer relative to say Stamkos working out with Roberts or JVR. Give him a few games and we'll see.

Regardless, it will take a lot for me to like that line.
