In an interview with Joe Brescia of the New York Times, Brad Richards discusses why he won't be playing hockey overseas during the lockout... "I’m going to skate and train through the week and just be tested and 100 percent healthy when the time comes to start." ...Richards might have been smart to share that advice with Rick Nash.

Go One On One With Owners

Just slamming Gary Bettman will never work. He's paid to take the crap. But if Brad Richards starts questioning why James Dolan needs to have a lockout, or if Claude Giroux takes some...
