I made this video to kind of welcome Mike Richards to LA. I thought I share it here...cause it's Mike Richards. I hope this isn't considered trolling because that is not my intention at all.

I kind of hated Statistics, however, if someone's playoff PPG were within 1 standard deviation of their career PPG, I'd assume that is staistically relavant right? Someone do some math and figure out what is 1 standard deviation off of Carter, Richards, Briere, and Giroux's career PPG. Let's see if they fit.

Great Video. Cannon will be sorely missed

I'll be watching LA games this year.

Find another thread then. This is the thread to discuss Mike Richards and Jeff Carter.

Face of the franchise doesn't deserve "don't let the door hit you on the way out", especially when he didn't want to leave.

The Winter Classic thread has brought me back to this one. Before, I would have killed to be at that game all the while sporting whatever new jersey they put out.

Now, I couldn't care less. There's no one on this team I'd even consider buying a jersey of yet. I'm more excited for the first Kings game televised on Versus or whatever, whenever that may be.

A friend of mine saw a Briere jersey at a garage sale this weekend and bought it for me. I had to fake enthusiasm. It's a knock off but still, it's the thought that counts and since he has a NMC he'll probably be here for a few years. Mind you, that's why I bought Richards and Carter jerseys so what do I know.

In that video, didn't you love how Clarke talked about the things Richards has that can't be taught? Like leadership? So in a year he un-taught himself, I guess. Unreal.

Wouldn't surprise me if Clarke himself opposed the trade. I've heard him praise Richards countless times on TSN.

I get the sense the trades were probably 95% Snider.

For anybody else who didnt get to read the dobberhockey Nostradamus thread, you can go on google and search "dobberhockey playmaker flyers offseason thread" and you will find most of the pages cached so you can read almost everything that he called.

This is still the equivalent of dating a really hot girl(or dude for all you girl readers) and your realtionship was going swimmingly and than you just broke up for no reason. This thread is just you looking at all her pictures on your facebook and remembering how hot she was.

Yeah, why would anyone want to remember past players fondly? It's not like these guys had any positive memorable moments wearing orange and black.

The fan base has certainly 'jumped the shark', I agree.

There is such a thing as overkill..that is what jumping the shark means..obviously.

I have nostalgia for a lot of players particularly the 86-87 team and if there were trilogy threads I would have the same criticism...

The players were moved this off-season and there's no on ice event(s) for the fan base to talk about. What do you expect people to banter about? Carter and Richards were widely popular and had signed long contracts to be the faces of the franchise, essentially for their careers. One move would have upset fans... but, both on the same day?

Seems about par for the course to me.
