    Default The All Encompassing Mike Richards Thread (Lombardi is not buying him out)

    What are your feelings for him currently? I mentioned to my gf that I will miss that guy when he is gone. I personally like him so much, he does the things needed to win, he assists but is missing that certain push and has for awhile, I know we are in the finals and this is early but do you think DL keeps him or not ?

    I don't think he goes anywhere this offseason to be honest. It's been a poor year by his standards, but I also expect him to bounce back next season. He also has the type of leadership and character that makes this Kings team what they are.


    If there's a downward trend next year then you start thinking about it, but Rick absolutely deserves the benefit of the doubt IMO. One year ago he was producing at a .66 PPG clip in the regular season and was our leading playoff scorer before getting concussed. (3+9=12 points in 15 games). Dude's a warrior, and we wouldn't have **** without him (or be here without him.).

    I think at this point Mike is a luxury rather than a necessity with the emergence of carter at the center position. I would let go of Richards if it gets Kings a top 4 defensman. Richards and 1st for Giordano for example.

    this team isn't in significant cap trouble and he still brings a hell of a lot to this team beyond the score sheet.

    he's not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Love the guy, Think hes a huge part of this team.... Problem is, his production has tailed off, and he isnt a bonafied top 6 anymore with our roster. This pretty much slots him into the 3rd 4th line roll at a price tag of 5.27m a year. This is a HUGE overpayment for that position. I personally would keep him for the short term. But....

    What if toffoli scores 35 goals next year and tanner pearson gets 50pts? Both will be RFA's looking for a heafty pay day.... Where are u going to get that kind of cap room?What about justin williams?(who is also FA next year) Do you let him walk over moving mike richards?

    I refuse to believe Lombardi is even entertaining the possibility.

    So we should get rid of Richards because our two rookies might have an amazing season next year? What if Carter breaks his hand? What if Kopitar hurts his ankle? What if Toffoli joins the Peace Corp?

    Can't we wait to have this discussion in a couple of weeks after we win the cup. Just enjoy that he contributing to the Kings success in the present.
