The jist of the conversation was the older players felt the younger guys wern't prepared enough, spend to much time enjoying their fame and fortune, getting a bit out of shape during the season.

Any accuracy to this, what can be added to the story? How much smoke and how much fire?
Well the first thing is that Richards is one of the guys who lives in the suburbs, so it still doesnt make sense

Hartnell, Carter, Lupul, Upshall, and Eager were the city boys, and now 3 of them are gone, so there may have been fire in the smoke, but I think it is no longer a problem

This is true, Mike Richards was the 1st captain in Flyers history to do this and a few others followed him. And when you show up to practices not ready or "tired" (+ lose game) obviously the vets are going to get pissed, especially an outspoken one like Pronger.
Fail, Richards lives in new jersey, close to the skate zone.
