The biggest reason why Philly took a step back was because of the injury to Pronger. Richards leaving may have benefited the team more than it hurt it, regardless of success he experiences elsewhere.
My point wasn't that complicated, just an opinion on preference of players, not stats and projections. No need to completely derail and pick a part what I said word for word over a half baked comment i made about an awful proposal. If a comment annoys you so much why not just disregard it?
