Well, Richards was all Cannon tonight!!!

But, I had to tell ya this. I walked into the Wachovia and see a guy wearing a Richards black jersey, but it said Cannon on it. The guy was probably a little older than me (I'm 35), and I'm thinking..."Gotta be an HFer" So I go up and ask him, and he seems very confused....but says "My son might know".

So, if one of you guys have a dad that wore your Cannon jersey, tell him I'm not psycho!!!

The only player in history to score three 3-on-5 goals, and doing it at the age of 25 (it was 4 days after his birthday), he would be perfect for a Michael Mann commercial I think.

When I got it on my cellphone, I was surprised that something for Flyers at this time of day reached my phone. For a sec I thought we traded someone, and then one of my worse fears almost happened, I saw the name Richards and I was like no way they traded Richards... I had to reread it like 10 times just to make sure

Cartainly Warranted the way he has been playing recently. I think the Flu put a boot up his ass. Ever since he was sick he is on a hot streak. 5 goals and 5 assists in the 5 games since, a career high 5-point game, currently on a streak not just for goals but for short-handed goals and set a new NHL record.

Also: NHL.com article.

I think this is it: http://flyers.nhl.com/team/app/?serv...LPage&id=22978
Not sure if it works outside the U.S. though and I strongly doubt it.

The NHLs best penalty killer. I saw it a few times against Pitt, teams back off, makes it easier to clear the puck.

Definitely. They feel like it's the smart play, but in reality, he'll kill you either way. If you try to beat him with aggressiveness, he'll score. If you try to beat him by backing off, he'll gladly take the clear.

It's similar to how teams treated Forsberg on the PP. If they tried to get too aggressive he'd find the open man. If they gave him room to operate he was deadly.

The education and domination of Flyers captain Mike Richards

They're also demanding sports fans, and Richards has proven to be up to the challenge that comes with wearing the 'C' for the orange and black. He has 23 goals and 61 points, good for second on the Flyers; his strong two-way game at center has put him in contention for the Selke Trophy; and his maturation as a leader has been one of the reasons the Flyers are contending in the Eastern Conference this season.

Richards was asked at the end of last season about the captaincy but declined to discuss it out of respect to Jason Smith, the veteran defenseman who captained the Flyers last year. Once Smith moved on to the Ottawa Senators, Richards ascended to the captaincy after Coach John Stevens and GM Paul Holmgren agreed he was ready:

"It is something John and I had talked about over the course of the summer time," said Holmgren. "John has spent a great deal of time with Mike just to make sure that he is ready for this. I spent some time with Mike since he has been back in town, and we are positive it's the right time to do this with Mike. We look forward to him being the leader of the Flyers for many years to come."

"I just think Mike Richards is a player that has all the characteristics we want on our team," added Stevens. "We want a guy out there, that when we see him playing, he is representative of the identity of our hockey team. I think Mike is all of that."

Indeed, Richards's play is symbolic of the tenacious and tough persona of this Flyers team. He never quits on a play, and swarms the net with the best of them. He's dropped the gloves four times this season, while hounding opponents like Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby in head-to-head matchups.
