He was sent down and then brought back up. I have had it with Torts. Whatever merits he has as a coach, he is terrible at developing talent. As the Rangers have actually stockpiled some young talent and look to be built for the next five years, they need someone who can develop it. I am now openly rooting for a collapse/rebellion circa the 92-93 Rangers when Messier and crew stopped playing for Roger Nielsen in order to get someone in there who could actually coach to the talent they had.
Tort is what happens when you put a greasy no-talent with a massive chip on his shoulder in charge. To the extent Slats is still a sentient being, he must think that Richards has enough respect in the locker room to keep the obviously crumbling morale from collapsing. Problem with that theory is that Richards has grossly underachieved this year despite getting long stretches riding shotgun with Nash and Gaborik.
He was called back up because apparently there are some questions surrounding Nash. Took a forearm to the head into the boards from Lucic (on the sequence where Nash took the hooking call later), stayed in and played against the fishsticks
Doesn't speak to sending him down though.
