Richards Finally Healthy

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

I wrote this summer that I had not yet been impressed by Brad Richards. There apparently is a pretty good reason for that. I found out this week that in addition to the wrist and hand injuries that ended up cutting 25 games from his season in 2008-09, Richards was bothered by shoulder problems for much of the year.

If you combine that with the mono he suffered in 2007-08, we never have seen Richards at full strength in a Stars uniform.

That appears to be changing this season. Richards Has played one NHL game since Feb. 16, and he said he has taken the time to get completely healthy. He said the right wrist and left hand both feel great. He said the shoulder feels great.
