Richards is the worst. I'm so done with him. I don't care if he has a hat trick next game. I want him gone. He can't change my mind, no matter what he does going forward.
On that 4-2, he is directly in the slot with a virtually straight angle on the net. He's not being pressured because its a 4-2. He has decent pass options, but shooting is the right play. One, he HAS to wind up for the ****ing slap shot. Why? Two, he misses an unpressured, uncontested shot from the most prime and direct territory there is. I mean, no bull at all, I know I would hit the net there. And what's wrong with a hard wrister, Brad? I loved Richards in his Lightning days and wanted him when he was in Dallas. I always listed him as a favorite of mine before he arrived in NY. I was badly underwhelmed by him last season, but content with some clutchness and still respectable numbers. I literally couldn't hate him more at this point. I want him to go elsewhere just so I can hope he loses. When he gets a point now, it annoys me. I can't ****ing stand him. I hate his stupid buck toothed face. I hate that he wears an A. I simply can't stand him.
