Brad Richardson to the Flames=plan the parade


Recommended Posts

Actually glad to see him keep his career going, I have heard him interviewed a dozen times over the years, he always makes time for the media, seems like a good guy and is the perfect 4th liner and penalty killer who other than one year when he actually led the Coyotes in goals scored is seldom much more than a spear carrier but is a nice complimentary player. 

 

  But here is the stat that cracks me up, I heard it on the radio this morning and looked it up because I thought no way, but here it is. In 825 career games he has only scored 2 power play goals and a total of 3 power play points while he has scored 15 shorties and has seven short handed assists. So in 16 NHL seasons only 3 power play points but 22 shorties. I dont know of anyone else with quite that skill set.

Truly a "forgotten player".
I looked him up (the name was familiar, but I couldn't recount ever actually seeing him PLAY!), and was surprised to find he was already 36....which means I basically missed his entire career!! 

All messing aside, his numbers don't stand out at all, but yea, seems like a pretty good locker room guy, good soldier type, and if you want a stout PK'er, he's your man.
Perhaps he is like the Rob Zamuner, Darroll Powe, or Tim Taylor of this generation.... aka, "meh" numbers, but loaded with intangibles, well liked by teammates, and very workmanlike.

Flames could sure use some of that to rub off on their players now more than ever...especially with the loss of Mr. Workmanlike from the blue line gone, Mark Giordano.
