At this point, it doesnt sound like Luke Richardson has any interest in becoming an assistant coach in the NHL. Kevin Jepsen Jersey . There have been several Ottawa fans wondering if Richardson - currently the head coach of the clubs AHL affiliate in Binghamton - would be able to help the Senators with their defensive issues as an assistant coach down the road. But speaking to him on TSN 1200 Tuesday, it sounds like the 44-year-old is waiting for the right opportunity to become a head coach in the NHL. Richardson had spent three years as an assistant in Ottawa, but in the spring of 2012 he had a conversation with general manager Bryan Murray about his coaching future. So when the Binghamton job opened up after Kurt Kleinendorst stepped aside, he knew that was the career path he wanted to pursue. "It was great getting the experience those first few years kind of being the part-time guy, the upstairs guy and the practice guy with the Senators. But when I had that chance to become a head coach I told Bryan, Thats what I want to be. I want to be a head coach. Its not that I think Im better than anyone else or better than an assistant coachs job, I just feel more comfortable in that role and I like it," Richardson said on Tuesday. Richardson says he currently has no aspirations to leave his post in Binghamton, where he has guided the club to a first-place position in the AHLs East Division. "Im really happy to be here. And I take a lot of pride trying to help these young players in the organization. So my answer is that Im happy to be here and Im signed for another year," added Richardson. Of course, things could change if an NHL head coaching job opened up in the summer. A couple of teams - like Buffalo and Florida - are currently working with interim head coaches and have made no guarantees about who will be behind their bench next season. Add in the usual number of post-season coaching changes and there could be several opportunities for Richardson to consider in the summer. But he was quick to point out the Binghamton job offers him the unique luxury of being close to his daughter who is wrapping up her sophomore year at university down the road in Ithica, New York. "It really works well for my family with our daughter Morgan an hour away at Cornell and we get to see her a lot. Its very unusual to be able to do that in the geography of the hockey world. We are fortunate to have that so right now, my answer is that Im going to stay in the AHL." Trevor Plouffe Jersey .com) - World No. 1 Rafael Nadal, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and four-time Australian Open titlist Roger Federer were among Mondays fourth-round winners at Melbourne Park. Justin Morneau Jersey . His head snapped back from the impact and hit the floor. The All-Star power forward was all right afterward, a relief for the Minnesota Timberwolves. http://www.mlbtwinsonline.com/authentic-glen-perkins-twins-jersey/ . -- LeGarrette Blount made one last big splash into a soggy end zone.Opening night of the baseball playoffs provided some great theatre, assuming you could stay awake long enough to watch.That the 12th-inning win by Kansas City over Oakland took nearly five hours to play highlights a problem baseball still has to address. Still, the return to small ball in a sport plagued by steroids should be celebrated just as much as the first post-season win by the Royals in 29 years.But as Bud Selig prepares to take a victory lap on behalf of the owners he represented so well, there are issues he hasnt handled nearly as well. While the game is awash in cash that is making both owners and players richer than ever, it has become increasingly marginalized as a national sport as attendance sags in some cities and television ratings continue to sink.Incoming commissioner Rob Manfred has a chance to do something about that. As the playoffs begin, here are a few suggestions to help the grand old game:HIRE VINNY a€” Clayton Kershaw may get the Dodgers in the World Series all by himself, but how about giving us a treat once theyre there? Put Vin Scully in the broadcast booth for Game 1 and let of the rest of the nation find out why the 86-year-old announcer is so revered in Southern California. Let Scully work alone as always and spin stories, like the time in 1956 he called Don Larsens perfect game at Yankee Stadium on NBC and was afraid to say much more than Strike 3 because he had been told the new medium would tell the story. Nothing to lose, because World Series ratings have been sinking for decades now.SET THINGS STRAIGHT a€” Selig will be gone in January, which is probably a good thing for baseball. Selig did what commissioners are supposed to do, which is make owners money and get taxpayers to build new ballparks. But he turned a blind eye to the steroid scandal and will leave office still thinking Barry Bonds is the career home run leader. The new commissioner should on his first day of the job declare any offensive mark set between 1988 (Jose Cansecos heyday) and today void simply because they cant be believed.ALL STARS a€” If Manfred still has time on his first day he should abolish Seligs rule giving the league that wins the All-Star game home-field advantage in the World Series. The desperate attempt to make the All-Star game meaningful in some way was a joke from the beginning.SOLVE THE DH a€” Either ban the designated hitter all together or make it mandatory in the National League, too. No other sport plays by different rules in different divisions, but baseball hasnt figured out the DH dilemma since it was introduced in the American League 41 years ago. Chris Young Jersey. Its an issue in the post-season when AL pitchers are ill-prepared to hit in NL parks, and NL rosters are not built with a slugger to plug in the middle of the lineup.FIX INSTANT REPLAY a€” Baseball was a latecomer to the instant replay party, but got it mostly right in its inaugural season. What needs to go away is the dance that has developed when managers come out of the dugout to stall while getting word whether to appeal a call or not.LET PETE IN a€” Its way past time to allow Pete Rose back into the game. Seligs refusal to revisit the subject of the hits king doesnt make sense anymore, if it ever did. Rose has more than served his time for betting on games, yet his only connection to the game remains signing baseballs in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, others who have disgraced baseball by using steroids are working in dugouts and keep appearing on Hall of Fame ballots.SPEED THINGS UP a€” In one of his final acts in office, Selig formed a committee to come up with recommendations to speed up games that now top out at an average of more than three hours apiece. No committee needed because its mostly common sense. Make batters stay in the box; dont let pitchers stroll from the mound. Add to that some batting gloves that dont need to be constantly adjusted, and the game will suddenly be a half hour shorter.ONE SONG IS ENOUGH a€” Playing the national anthem before the game is a time-honoured tradition that began in baseball and has been embraced by almost every sport. But is there really a need for another song during the seventh-inning stretch to remind us we live in the greatest country on earth? God Bless America is a fine tune, but fans buy tickets for a baseball game, not a patriotic rally.CELEBRATE KERSHAW a€” Hes most often compared to Sandy Koufax, but it may not be long before Clayton Kershaw is the one that others are compared to. Hes an artist on the mound, with four straight ERA titles, and will likely be the National League MVP as well as Cy Young winner. Hes also the highest paid pitcher in the game, but he and his wife are heavy into charitable activities, including building an orphanage in Africa. About the only thing Kershaw hasnt done is pitch well deep into the post-season. Get that done this year and lot of people will be celebrating along with him.___Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.
