IF your snide remark regarding ice fishing was referring to Mike Richards, he already said the reason he didn't go was becaues of the injuries he got last year and giving his body a chance to fully heal. He wanted to be 100% for the KINGS, his team.
And neither he or Carter 'chase ass' as you so charmingly put it, both are in commited relationships. Carter and his long time girlfriend bought a house in August in Manhattan Beach. Richards has eben in a commited relationship with a girl from his home town for almost two years. The 'drinking and skirtchasing' was old and stale when the idiots on the PHilly blogs posted. It's winceable bad to keep repeating that.
mike? jeff?

j/k...just jokes bud

playing there is taking a chance. same as Kopi and AMart going over and getting injured. the difference though is very noticeable. the guys that have been playing are making an impact, compared to those that stayed home. whether they played in the AHL, ECHL, KHL or other Euro leagues. those guys have their legs and aren't fighting the puck. there's no substitute for games, not even training camp. just hoping for MR and Carter to get off to a great start, esp Carter so he can bury the haters and criticism of the past
