I'm one of the few Carter fans left in Flyerland. Still hurts to see him play so well for the Kings.
It wasn't lockerroom trouble rumours that plagued Carter and Richards; it was off ice shenanigans, particularly with Carter. Dean Lombardi has been very open with speaking about Carter's maturity since he arrived in LA.
When you throw millions of dollars at young men, there needs to be an understanding that they're going to have fun. I don't know if the Flyers didn't help Carter settle or if he just needed to mature on his own, but he's a different guy in LA. I believe there was a recent article quoting Lombardi and Richards about Carter's maturity with the Kings.
I deride your truth handling abilities
