Richards line is history. They need someone who can skate with the puck. Kristo has skated in twice, Asham has twice as well. Richards can't skate well enough and doesn't have the size or the moves to get through the neutral zone and get his line time and space. They're making stupid in tight passes that accomplish nothing in terms of progressing the puck.
They're making fancy passes for the sake of making them and eluding the opposition--- in the neutral zone?
