Canadiens interested in Brad Richards?

CKAC is reporting that the Montreal Canadiens may have interest in the Dallas Stars Brad Richards and Matt Niskanen. HTR feels that if this is so it would represent a change in direction away from the Lecavailer chase to possibly a more realistic offensive option for the Canadiens.

If was not mentioned what the Candiens may will be willing to trade for Richards however HTR feels that Richards Richards may not be the answer for the Habs. Richards has a long term contract that would saddle the team for many years and he is not known for his goal scoring abilities, he is more of a passer. With that being said, it would be interesting to see how he would fit on Kovalev’s wing.

What do you think .. is Richards the right man for the Habs and what would you give up to get him?
