Brayden Schenn can do that too, and then some! Just wait and see!

I have watched Schenn and you are close to being correct. Schenn "might" do that but Richards HAS done it, big difference. Never would have made this trade, even if Schenn does it.

You tear up? Really? Come on now...he didn't even play here for that long and he didn't win anything besides the award for least worthy captain.

Mike Richards is going to go down as one of the most overrated Flyers in team history. And he's going to be a massive dissapointment in LA considering what they gave up to get him. When they get to February and he suddenly forgets how to play, they'll be wishing they had Schenn.

When Richards scores 30 goals, 75+ points, and wins the Selke I don't think the Kings are going to wish they had Schenn

I just break out the two DVD's and watch them as kids when they lost the Gold medal game to USA then the following year they won the Gold and smoked the great 8. Seeing Mike in the locker room wearing the game hard hat was cool. Man was Carter impressive both those games. Knowing they were drafted by us was special. They both will have a spot in my heart and I will wish them nothing but good luck. Except when they play us. Get busy living or get busy dying. GO FLYERS

Really tear up? Hmmm. But I did tear up at Pelle's memorial service.That was a tough evening for sure.

I do disagree with your comments about Mike. He is a pro and will do just fine. Overrated? No way. But I do hope the kings will regret the trade. I am looking forward to see what the kid can do here. As much as I am looking forward to 2012. I think 2013 will even be better.

Wow, Richards got on my nerves this year, but for this era, I don't know how you could argue he wasn't the best player on the team.

How was Richards overrated? Borderline PPG players with excellent D play don't exactly fall off of trees. His role as Captain may have been arguably overrated but his play certainly wasn't.

So we're only allowed to fondly remember champions now?

I wasn't even alive in 1987 and I understand the idiocy of that statement.

Some of us were just extremely shocked and disappointed to see them go because it looked as though they were on the verge of doing something big together. You look back at that shift by Richards in the EC clincher against Montreal, when he was really on top of his game. Then you see the way Giroux and JvR were really coming into their own at this level. Briere still lit up the playoffs. Then there's the defense, which is one of the best in the league when healthy. The odd man out of the playoff performers was Carter, but at some point it seemed like he'd put it together in the playoffs. If it happened next season, I'd say it'd be their best shot. Richards played a lot of games last season, it'd be interesting to see his effort level deep into next season given the extra time off this off-season.

It was a team of strength seemingly built around Richards and Carter. Acquiring Bryzgalov was the last piece. A few minor tweaks, a few smart signings to fill in depth, and the Flyers are again considered one of the top contenders. But that's what I think the organization got tired of: being considered annual contenders, spending to the cap, and seeing no Cups.

Interesting to note that the Flyers have maybe 3 players on the roster drafted by the organization.

The comments above yours just prove that the majority of Flyer fans treat their players like ****. It's embarrassing to see how this fan base is perceived elsewhere and I know it isn't everyone but the ones that act like petulant children because the team didn't win the cup make everyone look bad.

They had a deep playoff run last year and didn't have enough recovery time. It happens to nearly every team, Chicago didn't do much either during this year's playoffs just like Pittsburgh didn't do much the year before. Add in the extended number of games with the Olympics forcing a longer season and some of the players didn't have enough left in the tank. But then again we're supposed to act like these guys are super human robots.

In the last part I think he says "you want it?" I want say he says something like you got it mate afterwards, but I think I'm just putting that there, because it fits. At first I thought he was saying "go **** yourself" in the first part, but I don't think he is.

I haven't been around here since the end of the season.

I'm still sad about Richards being traded.

Oh, **** me. I just watched the empty netter that took us to the cup in 2010.
Richards was amazing, won the faceoff, stole the puck in the Habs zone and Carter hustled for the tap-in.

There was another goal in that game, I believe it was Kimmo to Richie behind the net to Carter in the slot who sniped it from down on one knee. But he doesn't show up in the playoffs!

Then there was that time where Carter missed an open net that would have sent us to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Stop acting like they can do no wrong.

You mean on the play where Campbell got his stick on Carter's, and Niemi made a great save?

Stop acting like it was all his fault.
