IMO Richards works very hard on the ice. He is not blessed with size or speed but he works hard and he sacrifices his body and he is a smart player. He has worn the C at every level and he has earned it at every level. I don't think any of us can imagine the physical and emotional pain he felt when they lost game 6. There is no way he expects anyone to hand him the Stanley Cup without putting in the effort. He knows what kind a war it is to get your name on the Cup more than any of us guys typing away on our keyboards and cursing the latest sh*tty game.

Richards is not a good interview, but that does not mean he isn't a great leader. He is respected because he doesn't try to be something he is not (i.e. Mr Charisma and great quote Pronger).

I personally hope he is in Philly forever, that he wears the C for his tenure and most importantly that he wins it all.
