Like I said, I'm sure 80% of it wasn't true, but once Carter was traded, the Flyers just decided to not run any risk of malcontent in the locker room.
It was true, but I agree with you, I would have tried to work another way around those issues rather then just trading Richards. Send his drinking buddy out to Columbus like you did and go from there. But that's ancient history now.



This Lilja injury might lead to an overpayment on a Rozsival or Coliacovo. It's not going to lead to giving up a Schenn or a Couturier to put a band aid on a leak the size of a car. C'mon people.
