Brad Richardson has avoided arbitration and signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Kings.

Every Kings fan should be happy now.

Great salary.

He used to be so damn good in the OHL, odd that it didn't translate "so far".

And just how does this affect the Kovalchuk situation?

he had a rough year in 08/09 battling foot injuries, but came on strong halfway through last season and was a beast imo. Im stoked we got him again, and for cheap.

I really liked him in Colorado and he has really done well in his role with LA...

He might not put up massive numbers but I think I can fairly say that he is one of those Kings everyone loves. He played on all 4 lines last year and he played well on all of them. He's a guy best suited for the 3rd line but truly can be plugged in anywhere and hold his own with his linemates.

If LA pays me $900,000, I'll resign too.

Great to have him back in the fold, and at $900,000 for what he provided, a steal.

Hopefully he builds on it for next year.

What a great deal....we got a steal....i thought he would get closer to 1.5-2 a year....

Once TM started using him correctly the 2nd half of last year, we saw how valuable he really is....

He would have put up over 20 goals and 50 points if he had the same role all year...

He turned me into a big fan last year and i really think he has some serious skill

Very good deal for the Kings. Richardson of course if he has a great season may put himself in line for a nice payday next season, but the Kings get him signed for a great price for this year at least.

Per Medveded, Richardson is a man.

Looks like a nice contract for the Kings.

Can anyone tell me about this guy? Which line will he be used next season and what is his play like? I remember when the Avalanche gave up on him and he finally started to find his game as a King last year.

He was a great player in the OHL, but he lost a full season of development at 18 or 19 I think with a shoulder injury and he was never really the same. Still a great player, but I think with those injuries his chances of being a high scoring NHL player were over.

But he's versatile enough to be effective in many roles and I'm glad he's found a home in the NHL. Brad deserves it!

Should be playing wing on the 3rd line with Handzus and Simmonds. I expect him to continue to improve statistically and handle more responsibilities. He should see a lot of ice time on the PK unit. I see him improving to 15-18 goals and 35-40 points.

Looks like this will be Richardson's last year though in LA, that's a shame, I just wonder why it was only one year...

I don't know why you would say this. He is getting an opportunity this season to earn another raise next summer.

Why would you think that? Brad Richardson will be a RFA next season. Perhaps to better gauge his value, both parties decided it would be best to give it another go before settling on a longer term.

I thought he was a UFA next year,

Just thought if LA thought he was in the future plans, they would have tried to lock him up for the next 3-4 years, not saying that they didn't,

I really like Richardson and just hope he will be a part of the future, I was hoping something like 3 years at 5 million total, that would have been a sweetheart deal
