Pronger took over as the de facto captain two years ago, they just let Richards keep the C to avoid embarrassing him and to give him a chance to grow into the role. When he didn't, they shipped him out.
Pronger is also on record as saying he was brought in to "help him out." Ultimately he helped ship him out I suppose since Richards didn't shape up as captain literally and figuratively...
