Richards? He's gone after this year and he's not bringing much to the table now
I really thought pavel would stick around one more year and not handcuff us with the 7.5 cap hit .... Now that being said and he's actually leaving I hope we insert mantha back in and let him play with pavel now and learn, I wanted him up a lot sooner to learn from him and hank but now time isn't a luxury
And I hope Blashill wakes the f up and stops playing it safe and realizes if we're gonna make a good run here the kids are gonna have to step it up and that means more ice time and not benching a sniper and playing AA 5 minutes a games and overplaying hank and pav who will only get more tired and not benefit the team the longer the playoffs go for us
It's time for Blashill to trust some of these kids , and if we are gonna have a long run it'll come through mrazek and not Howard
You bring up a pretty good point here. If the organization had this knowledge already I sure wish they would've opted to play some of the promising younger kids with Datsyuk much more often than they did. Makes me even angrier that he's been playing with Helm and Richards.
