Pierre LeBrun at ESPN reports that Brad Richards has been working out with Martin St. Louis in Connecticut lately, and sounds like a man hell bent on proving to people he’s still an elite player.
And if you don't believe LeBrun, check out this pic Richards tweeted out last week…
…the first thing that comes to my mind looking at this pic is what the hell is on the other end of that rope? Olivia Munn?
…in all seriousness, I know you guys were discussing this pic in the comments section the other day (H/T to Jack), but I figured it deserved a post.
…due to the injury risk, I still believe the Rangers made the wrong decision not buying Richards out, but I'm over it and hearing these reports has me more confident than ever that he'll have a huge bounce back season. This also further confirms that he's likely embarrassed about coming into camp last season grossly out of shape and wants to prove he can still be an effective player in this league. I know most Rangers fans aren't willing to do so, but I'm going to give him a pass for last season and will be cheering like hell for the guy to score huge goal after the huge goal the way he did two seasons ago.
