Like I said, he could win ten stanley cups and become MVP of the league and they'd still never admit they were wrong. Probably say something like, 'the trade woke him up, he would've never done that with us!' Ok sure whatever. Just keep having fun with your crappy team and your horrible record for the second straight year. Mike and Jeff are happier in LA anyway.
I don't think there's a loser in that trade. Yes, the kings gave up a whole lot of assets, and value wise, the flyers probably got the better of the trade. But without Richards, we probably don't win the cup.

It's a win/win trade imo. The main difference is that kings organization has created a team that will be a cup contender for years to come, whereas flyers organization has floundered in that department.

So, yeah, there are no losers in the Richards trade.
