Richards Aiming to Return Tonight

It is beginning to sound like the return of Brad Richards to the Dallas Stars' line-up is just around the corner, as the team is expecting their number one forward to taking the morning skate on Wednesday, trying to dress against the Flames after missing the last month with a concussion.

Richards was injured in the middle of February, when the team was about to embark on a road trip to Western Canada and has now received clearance to return to game action.

ImplicationsWhen Richards went down with the injury, Wayne H. was very much in the mix for a money position, sitting in 7th position in the standings, only 12 points from 4th place, well within striking distance with more than enough weeks to do the business.  Going into Wednesday night's action, Wayne goes in sitting in 8th spot, now 39 points out of the money and now carries little hope of making that up in the next four and a half weeks.  Very unfortunate.
