    Richards and leader should never be used in the same sentence, unless it’s about what he does off the ice. On the ice: he just leads the whining. Thanks again for Simmons and Schenn LA. Enjoy Dumb and Dumber the next 10 years.

      phillyphever, that’s harsh. I’m sure Richards is great at cutting snow for Jeff Carter. :P
