I will be perfectly honest with you, I had my concerns with Richards being named captain. Actually, "concerns" is probably the wrong word. My take is that I would have been perfectly content with Timonen receiving the "C", and giving Richards more time before assuming the responsibility. That would have made sense to me, and I would have been OK with that scenario.
But the fact is that Flyers felt it was Richards' time, and they know better than the rest of us, or at least they should.
I respect your opinion that you believe that Richards didn't "earn" the captaincy, I just disagree with it. But you've taken enough bashing in here, and your assessment of the situation is as valid as anyone elses, whether we agree or not.
