Hi, everybody, what's wrong with B.Richard ???, He has the biggest contract in the NHL, but just have 37pts so far this season. He's playing around 23min a game....Is he hurt ???, does he play on the PP ????, Is he in the coach doghouse ??? On which lines he is playing ?? can we expect a big second Half ??? thank you guys I appreciate a lot
He gets time on the PP, isn't injured, isn't in the doghouse, is on the 2nd line with Alexeev and Fedotenko at the moment. He's just struggled this year and it's a shock to many because in his career Brad has gotten better every single year and has been the most consistent Lightning player the last few years. I think it's a case of a guy signing a big deal and the next year he struggles. His effort hasn't been there at all times this year and he hasn't set up as many goals as he usually does. I think he misses Modin on his line because those two had great chemistry and was a better finisher than the current guys on Brad's line. He still sees powerplay time with Marty and Vinny so he should have more points than this. I think his 2nd half this year will be better than the 1st half of the season and next year he'll be back to producing like he should.
