Columbus Extends HC Richards


Recommended Posts

Yep - it would've been a shock if they hadn't offered him another couple years. Good for him he certainly deserves it.


[edit: Now if they can only figure out what to do with (or "about") The Umburglar.]

Have to go with the general consensus here on "good extension".


And why not? the last two seasons under Richards, this Columbus team has improved by leaps n bounds.

Sure, some better talent has found it's way on to the team, but it's more than just that.

The team overall simply has an attitude that "Hey, we can play with and beat anybody on any given night".  And that kind of attitude, one would think, has been helped along by a steady, hockey smart leadership behind the bench....and Coach Todd Richards has shown he has been that.


Coaching stability. Something every good franchise needs, but unfortunately, is sometimes overlooked.

Hard for a team, even with good players, to be successful when there is a carousel in management.

Just ask Washington.

And as the Caps hope to settle down and get better under Barry Trotz, the Jackets look to continue to improve on the course that Coach Richards has helped set.
