Isn't the captain supposed to be the face of the franchise? If so, shouldn't he always be the first guy to face the press? As well, when they were asking questions about the whole Old Town Crew, I don't think they asked anything out of the norm.

Sometimes, as captain and as face of the franchise, it's going to involve swallowing some crap every now and again. However, if Richards truly wants to be a leader for this team, he's got to suck it up and answer when the bell calls, even if he's not up to task.

And when you consider that during his time as a Flyer that Richards has thrown Hitch and Holmgren under a bus, maybe he does deserve a little heat thrown his way. I think he's getting it easier from the press than what Lindros got.
