Someone else asked "how many of them have actually played hockey before?" I know for a fact he played for Ghost and probably won a Flyers Cup or two. We played against each other in high school, I think I was two years ahead of him, and they beat my team for our league championship my Senior year.
He was always into the reporting thing and interned at The Daily News. His last day they had him on DNL to thank him for doing such a great job and then quickly moved into a regular spot. I am pretty sure he was able to work his way quickly into the covering the Flyers because he knows hockey and it seems like everyone else in this town could care less about it, or if they do they get picked to go other places.
I think it is pretty awesome that someone that started off posting on this website as a 13 year old is now on DNL on a regular basis and living the dream of being a beat writer for the Flyers.
Good to read that I am still a part of the crew!
I don't often come back to post but I definitely still check out the message board every now and then to see what you guys think. In all honesty, my job is to serve you guys - the fans and the readers - in the best way possible, so if there is something that I'm not doing that you guys would rather see, I am all ears.
As Superman said, I started posting here in 2002 and I played the game at almost every level in the Philly area before going to college. Grabbing the Flyers beat at the Daily News really was a dream come true.
As far as the actual topic of the thread, I'd be really surprised if the Flyers decided to part with either Richards or Carter. I think Carter would be the first to go out of the two. The only way it would make sense, for me, is if you're going to get a top pick (read: 10th overall or better) and a player that you can plug into the lineup now. I don't think the term on his deal would scare anyone away, it's a pretty reasonable cap number for a player who has been durable (in the regular season), is just reaching his prime, and has averaged 38 goals over the last 3 seasons.
At some point, the Flyers are going to need to start re-stocking the farm, because it's already as barren as can be and the window on a few of the pieces in this lineup is already closing. It should become a priority sooner or later.
Good to be back and post.
