BTW, I love how none of this was an issue during the Finals run last year, or in the offseason following it, or while this team was dominant for half the season. Funny how this sort of thing is only a problem when things go poorly.

I doubt Richards and Carter are blameless. But from what I can gather, the organization didn't do such a hot job here either.
Yes, I'm sure that the Dry Island Board was the only confrontation that happened in the locker room for the past five years.

You are finally right about one thing, the organization didn't do such a good job of handling it. They should have stripped the C off Richards' chest two years ago, and he might still be a Flyer. They coddled him and Carter too much, hoping they'd finally grow up. They didn't. Buh-bye.
