You're a 'Flyers Fan Since Birth,' you, like I, have seen a enough Flyers teams flat out quit because of goaltending **** shows, and last year against Buffalo was the **** shows of all **** shows.
You're exactly right on that. The team as a whole, aside from JVR, was a huge disappointment in the second half of last season. It's not all Richards' fault that they sucked and barely made it past Buffalo and then got embarrassed by Boston. But when you have the C on your chest you have to be the guy that shows the team "hey I know we're tired but let's at least give it everything we have". I didn't see that from Richards. I didn't see it from him all last season or the season before aside from the playoffs. I'm harder on Richards than Carter because I came to expect more from Richards. All I expect from Carter is for him to float around and wait for easy goals. Unless it's the playoffs then he floats around and waits for easy goals that he doesn't cash in on.
