Clarke and Richards are/were such a perfect comparison. MR always seemed like a Clarke clone in the way they play and approach the game (MR having all his teeth and playing like Clarke used to without the bullys behind him).

To me the day the Fliers signed MR to his long term contract I knew that they were going to win at least one cup during the next few years. The day he was dealt to us I knew we would.

Oh well, you and all the rest of the flyer faithful are always welcome around here. Smart hockey people make the place go around no matter which team(s) they follow.
Thanks so much for that, I needed a warm fuzzy. I'm have a rather crappy day at work which just got worse with a steam burn from the microwave soup I misheated.

And the Flyers could have had that Cup if they'd had sense enough to recognize how special he was and built a team around him. They went in the other direction.
But he's a great fit on the Kings and will flourish in LA, nothing but good things for him and the Kings.
