Still can't believe this happened.

Mike, I will hang out with you in LA!

Listened to it this morning and it made me feel worse. I don't think I've been this depressed about a player getting moved since Lindros and even with that, everyone knew that was coming. This was completely out of left field.

Other than agreeing to disagree with you on Carter in the playoffs, I agree. Especially in Richards case. I think Carter was a cap move, and Richards was made the scape goat for the organizations issues.

Pronger knows what to say. He answers questions. He jokes around. Richards didnt answer questions well and obviously the behind the scenes stuff was a major factor.

Obviously management felt Schenn and Simmonds were worth more to them then Richie. That's all you need to know about the locker room and leadership of this team.
Neither were Mario Lemieux or Steve Yzerman the first 7-8 years or so of their careers.

Too many big egos in that room.....which is the fault of the person who put the group together. You dont hand your team over to someone like Richards (making him the captain) and then go out and trade for guys like Lappy and Pronger and expect no friction. There were no problems with Briere and Timonen prior to them getting here, by all indication.....Homer ****ed up, simple as that.

I feel the same...Lindros was and is still my favorite player I ever watched (Richards and Gagne tied for 2nd) but at the time the Lindros trade made sense....This one did/does not.

I'm sorry but people need to stop comparing Richards to players like Lemieux and Yzerman in any aspect. He is no where near those guys skill or leadership wise

I just listened to it.

I sucks so hard listening to Richards use the terms "their" and "them" when referring to the Flyers.

I think the point is that they didn't have those leadership qualities when they were 26 either. Yzerman was constantly criticized for not showing up when it mattered until, you know, he actually did. And then he became the greatest leader this side of Messier (non-Vancouver).
