Pressure’s on Richards

richardsrangersJames O’Brien at Pro Hockey Talk takes a look at Eastern Conference players who will be under big-time pressure next season including Brad Richards…

Brad Richards – One thing that was lost in all the hype about Richards’ unquestionable talents was his immediate struggles after signing his last huge contract, so here’s hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself there and compared to the Rangers’ own recent woes with costly additions. The difference between Richards and guys like Chris Drury and Bobby Holik is that he’s a legitimate first line center while those Rangers free agent blunders were hopeful top guys. That being said, if Richards falls on his face, he’ll be just another of Glen Sather’s Follies.

…yesterday, I posted that the heat was on Gaborik, now today the pressure’s on Richards. I think it’s safe to say that there will be enormous pressure on both these guys to produce this year.

…btw, don’t like hearing Richards struggled out of the gate after signing his last big contract. Not as easy to get yourself righted in New York.
