Note: John Tortorella Still Isn’t Worried About Brad Richards Having The Flu

For the third straight day of Rangers training camp, Brad Richards has been out with the flu.

Today, John Tortorella reiterated that the situation with Richards isn’t ideal, “We want him here. Is it ideal that he misses these days? No. But he is getting better and hopefully be on the ice quickly and jump right in with us. It is out of our control.”

Tortorella added, as he did yesterday, that Richards put in a lot of work in the offseason that should be able to help him when he returns.
