Mike Richards isn't captain for you, me, anyone posting here or watching from their couch. He's the captain for the Flyers, and if there were issues on the team and the PLAYERS didn't want him as captain, or didn't feel like he was a good captain, then he would be captain no more.
None of us know anything that goes on inside the team. Even some beat reporters don't have a clue.
So if the GM and assistant captains on the team are good with Richards wearing the C, then I'm ok with it it too. It's pretty ridiculous to see the average joe fanboy saying he should be stripped of the C when we know nothing about the situation.
Whatever, I hope everyone enjoys their Captain while he continues to do his "on the job training" in learning how to manage the role. I for one don't have some allegiance to Richards in that role and can see better suited candidates on the roster. I truly don't think the team will make this move, but I'm still entitled to my opinion as an educated hockey player and fan of the Flyers and the sport for over 30 years.
