If you are not going to hold the guys who are leaders on the ice and in the dressing room accountable then who do you hold accountable? Old Man Snider?
And just an FYI, Mike RIchards is not Mel Bridgeman, he could be, but he is not.
This is where another cagey, old veteran fan has to agree. Because Bridgman was stripped of his captaincy and run out of town by age 26, while Richards is still here. Being a longtime fan, you must remember the protracted contract battle where Mighty Mel demanded big bucks even though he had never become the elite two-way player the Flyers expected. And you have to recall the utter disappointment we all had with the way he slumped in his final seasons in Philly, seeing his offensive skills stagnate while other younger guys blossomed.
Oh, and I hope everyone had a great Friday, Friday. That freakin' song. Does the TV news really have to run it every week?
