Richards cost us the game……… Defense needs to wake up!!

na na na na, na na na na hey hay dean good bye.

Kings lost a HUGE game to team with their “B” players.  We were less then 5 minutes away from being in the 7th seed and now we are 10th!!!!

Let’s face it Richards is Way Overrated. He was good for the team in the beginning but he’s fallen off a cliff so much that he’s almost invisible. And with that really stupid play down low it cost the team a win. Good job there Richards you’re the man!

Trade doughty in the offseason and get major offensive talent for him. Change the style of play. Bring in a different kind of coach. Partial rebuild is in order. Otherwise it’s like trying repair a leaky roof with paper

LA is learning what it took decades for the NYR to learn…

I can really see the Richards hate. He was barely noticeable and the only times I did notice him it was when he was doing something dumb.

It strikes me that Richards is in the same place in his career Ovechkin is.  He never reached the same heights,of course, but both are at the point where their athleticism isn’t enough to make them great and they don’t have te discipline, work ethic or drive to excel in spite of that the way the greats do.  Kane will be there in a few years. 

It’s a bit sad, the guy who was both of their rivals probably would’ve excelled past the point where his body was slowing down just a touch if his concussions hadn’t stolen that opportunity.

Please take those comments with a grain of salt. Classic examples of the handful of panicky people and those who freak out at every little misstep. I’ll take Mike Richards on my team any day.

Maybe, but you seem to have a team full of his type at the moment…
