Dean Lombardi was scout with the Flyers from roughly 2003 to 2006.

John Stevens coached the Phantoms from 2000-06 and the Flyers from 2006-2010.

Terry Murray was assistant coach with the Flyers from 2004-2008 and was a scout from 2000-2001.

Ron Hextall was a scout and Director of player development from 1999-2006.

Mike Richards was selected 23rd overall in the 2003 draft. He played in the playoffs in 2004-2005 and won a championship under Stevens.

At the time of his draft all 4 current Kings and up until 2006; Lombardi, Murray, Hextall and Stevens were all Flyers.

Stevens was fired in 2009-2010 and Murray quit in 2008.

All these guys were around Richards for most of his career, don't you think they would know if the dude has some problems! It's not just one former coach, it's two former scouts, a former head coach and former assistant coach, one who was with Richards his entire pro career except last year. If any of this was true or a problem, Lombardi would not have made this deal.
