Brad Richards Article -- and some labor BS

The Tampa Tribune has a story on Brad Richards this morning - how he is trying to adjust back to life while he continues recuperating from surgery.

Yet there are some things said in the article that make me a little bitter. Stuff I have already complained about on Boltsmag with regards to it being the Players faults (each player individually) for this labor stoppage.

He has tried to shut himself off from the current negotiations between the NHL and the players' union....and we the fans suffer because he is not the only one that is not trying to guide the course of the league off ice as well as on. It's a fault repeated time and again by the players, and we're suffering as fans because of it.
