Yeah it was a locker room split that ended the Richards/Carter days in Philly. Pronger is such a ***** and probably didn't like the fact his influence on the team was greatly diminished.

Essentially we gave up Jack Johnson, Simmonds, Schenn, 1st round pick, 2nd round pick for Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. Make no mistake we gave up A LOT for these two players but they are proven commodities and yet to be in their prime.
