Whatever His Future Holds, Brad Richards Is Prepared

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For now, says Richards, he is concentrating on hockey and taking it on faith that the rest takes care of itself.

“I kinda look at it, whatever happens, it’s going to be a good thing either way,” said Richards, in an exclusive interview. “If it’s a new beginning, it’s a new beginning. If I get to stay here, I get to stay here. I’m very fortunate with what’s happening in my life and my career. So whatever happens, I’ll deal with it as we go along.”

Curiously, Richards’s exit from Tampa also followed an ownership kerfuffle - when Oren Koules and Len Barrie took over from William Davidson, who was at the helm when the Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004 (and Richards was selected playoff MVP).

“Day-to-day, I’ve been through it before,” said Richards. “Unfortunately, it (ownership instability) has kind of followed me around a little bit.

“But it is a lot different here. It’s not a distraction. Joe (general manager Nieuwendyk) has done a good job of keeping it away from us.
