Brad Richards in Montreal?
According to “THE FOURTH PERIOD,” Montreal is interested in Center Brad Richards and could possibly be willing to move Cristobal Huet as part of a package deal. Things are getting mighty tight for Feaster in Tampa Bay as the team sits in near last place in the conference. Ownership in Tampa is reportedly looking for a #1 goaltender to help solve their troubles.
So I was wondering what everyone else in Habs land would think of the acquisition of Brad Richards. Personally I’m up in the air on what they would do with the roster. Would we put him on the wing? Would we move Plekanec to a wing and make Koivu our 2nd line center?
Richards is a gritty player and a playoff performer, which is definately something Montreal could use. I also tend to wonder if the information may be off slightly. Maybe they are discussing more about Lecavs or St. Louis and Gainey is trying to keep it as “low profile” as possible by allowing the information to be about Richards.
In any case, this would certainly be interesting.
