Brad Richards harbors no ill feelings toward frustrated fans.
"Whatever the fans feel, it's 100-percent warranted," Richards said. "The fans are the reason the NHL is what it is, and they have every right to be frustrated. But the players are, too. We're frustrated, big time. We want this over with so we can get back onto the ice and play. Definitely there are a lot of people being hurt here and we're all sorry for that." Richards will hit the ice with a number of NHLers on Nov. 24 in a charity game benefitting the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
