It's far too soon for anyone to make any kind of decision on which team won the trade. 3-4 years too soon. Schenn isn't even playing in the NHL at the moment, so comparing Richards' effect on the Kings to Simmonds effect on the Flyers is pointless. Especially in game 4 of the season.
Im not saying this is the game to see who won the trade, but you know whoever wins, media, and hockey fans will be talking about the trade and who won the game, and honestly I do not want to listen to it.

And this is a statement game, we have won three in a row, we are a young team facing a supposed stanley cup contended... we have already beaten both the cup champions and the cup finalists lets keep it going against another good team... lets prove we can contend without richards, and beat the team he is on.

Does it really matter what the media and other hockey fans say? It's the fourth game of the season. Although every point matters...it's one game. You can't learn anything from just one game.

It's the 4th game against another top notch contender who you don't play a lot and who may come out of the West. It's a measuring stick no matter what..early or not. I go by what Simmonds says...it's about the two points and that is all that matters. Winning is all that matters and all the other tit for tat is for media and petty public consumption...

You are right winning is all that matters, but this would be a huge win early and noone can deny that.

I hope there aren't too many idiots down at the Farg tomorrow, and both Gagne and Richie get a resounding standing ovation. I also hope they play strong games and remain healthy. But of course I hope we smoke them.

Richards can get a hat trick anywhere and I'd be happy, except against us.

That's ridiculous if you think he should humiliate us like that.

But it looks like you may have just started watching the Flyers, so you wouldn't understand this.

Enjoy.

What is with the Internet and the proliferation of Straw Man arguments? OrangeCrush DID NOT SAY (or imply) that this game would determine who wins the Richards trade or how this season develops. He said that a Flyers loss could give critics of the trade and detractors of the organization another round of ammo (no matter how dubious it may be), and he would prefer that not to happen. Simple.

Exactly. I hope he gets a warm reception. He's done nothing to deserve otherwise.

I hazard that the vast majority of Flyers fans who paid good money to sit in the upper deck will cheer.

RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kings better bring their A game, cause the Flyers will be bringing that ****!

But seriously, it's going to hurt seeing Richards against us. It's going to be tough. Should be a close game.

kings and flyers are both viable options to win the cup this year.. with that being said, it could be decided in as little as one season.

Wait until we los the first game, it's going to be hilarious because this forum actually defines bi-polar.
