Flyers Lockeroom
 
B's fan coming in peace. Apologies for what is, by now, an old question.

Interested in an "inside" take on why Paul kept Pronger & traded Richards/Carter.

PS You guys finally have a goaltender. :handclap:

because carter banged hartnell's wife and richards watched.
please don't ask that question here. there are a lot of people that think they're experts and know the answer, but truthfully nobody knows. it's been discussed to ridiculous length this summer.

simple answer: who knows? let's play hockey. :handclap:

I'm going to assume that nobody here wants to put up with another of these threads, right?

Just as a matter of documentation, I'll post this article.

There were multiple threads regarding the trades during the summer but it's time to look forward not past.

TORONTO - Paul Holmgren categorically denies that off-ice issues led to the trading away of centres Mike Richards and Jeff Carter and the stunning remake of the Philadelphia Flyers.

In fact, the mere suggestion of inappropriate behaviour and the multitude of rumours that have surrounded the controversial transactions, angers the quiet Holmgren.

“That (off-ice behavior) had nothing to do with it, nothing to do it,” said Holmgren, the Flyers general manager. “They were young guys with a lot of money who enjoyed their life. And a lot was made of that. And why wouldn’t they? Wouldn’t you?

“A lot of has been said about this, too much really. There have been all kinds of stuff out there, and it’s untrue. Because they were quiet kids and weren’t good with the media, I think some of that came back to them. I think they paid for that. I don’t think it’s been fair. I think the world of both those kids. They gave their hearts and souls to our team.

“It wasn’t easy to do this. But we thought we had to do it.”
