It's not a big deal. It's a cool pad.
Yes, tremendous pad and one any guy would want for sure.

I don't how you could expect me not to get defensive... I just didn't understand why I was kinda called out on it... I suppose I can man up and say that maybe my wording was not what I wanted to be in clarity and it was open for incorrect interpretation, and let's let it go at that.

I any case I wasn't really upset, as much as a tad befuddled... I hope my prior explanation cleared up my original post... No problem whatsoever.

BTW/FWIW: I liked Richie as both a player and as a personality... had mixed feelings on his being ready to be captain, even after a couple years on the job... I doubt there were problems between him and the Organization stemming from his lifestyle, but believe there were problems between him and the local Media. I can believe there may have been problems in the Room dealing with leadership, but am not convinced one way or another and may never know... I do like the return and I'm optimistic about the future with the young talent now on board, at least the potential.

I harbour no ill feelings toward Richie and wish him well going forth in everything that does not negatively effect the Flyers... and I wish him well with his wonderful life outside of the rink; we should all be so well set up and have such great taste.
