Center Brad Richards continues to feel pain associated with his January surgery for a tear in his abdominal wall. It's not enough to keep him from playing, and tests show the pain likely is coming from scar tissue, not from the surgically repaired area. He doesn't appear to be at risk for reaggravating the abdominal wall. But he doesn't feel 100 percent. "I've been told it's probably going to take a year to get back to feeling 100 percent," Richards said. "I'm not worried. It only bothers me some days and it's not enough, I don't think, to affect my play. I expect to be able to do what I've always done on the ice.
