Dustin Brown isn't on the table anymore. That guy has been the best forward in the playoffs. Doughty has arguably been the best defenseman. And Quick the best goalie.

DL would be wise not to **** with that core.

LA is getting the luck of the hockey God's right now. To win, you have to bring it all together at the right time. LA is getting hot at the perfect time.

Brown is good, but Quick is the one guy I'd love to steal away from LA. It will never happen, but I just marvel at that guy's game. His speed and athletic ability for a goalie is just off the charts and fun to watch. Reminds me of Hasek.

It's '09 all over again.

You could smell our demise coming the way those last couple of weeks went.

Yeah, when the team stumbled the last 2 weeks of the season, you could tell it was going to be an uphill battle, regardless of what the media was saying.

LA looks like this team the Pens when they won the Cup. I just don't want to see Mike Richards win absolutely anything, so that's a catch 22.

To me, the Philly trolling offsets Richards winning. Though I would still look away whenever he raises the cup.

Richards is a fairly likable guy when he's not playing for a rival.

It wouldn't be the worst lasting image in the world to see Carter and Richards raise the Stanley Cup on Philly ice.

Yeah, that Ottawa game and then the two Islanders games... man... something was starting to stink and it all went downhill.

A lot of people say this. I can't agree with it though. I just don't like his face.

Okay, for those who wanted Ray Whitney and Shane Doan, you can scratch them off your free agent wish list, the team is staying in Phoenix and they just made it to the Western Conference Finals. I think it's safe to assume that they are staying.

Really got no problem with Richards. I wouldn't mind him being a Penguin. I like how he plays the game.

He's became my favorite non-Pen since he's been a king.

I still don't care for Richards or Carter. It's kind of offset by my man crushes on Quick and Brown though. I'm quickly beginning to hate Brayden Schenn similarly to Richards. I guess the hatred is a compliment in a way though.

i just can't root for carter and richards.

i've heard far too many stories of them coming to undergrad bars here on Penn's campus and being complete d-bags to people. even die-hard flyer fans here that met them admit they were huge tools.

these guys are paid big bucks and couldnt even get on board with laviollete's "dry island" idea of not drinking for one single month.

plus the whole carter fiasco. get traded to CBJ, sulk for a while, then get your wishes by getting traded to play for a contender with your your butt buddy. he seems like the spoiled brat that whines because he doesn't get his way... and now it looks like he is getting his way.

i just cannot root for those two. ever.

if it came down to LA vs. Philly, my head would explode.

I don't mind Richards as much as most of the current Flyers. He was cocky & immature but Giroux has taken that now. He was never Captain material & it's pretty obvious now.

It would be nice if LA won with Carter & Richards because we all heard how great Holmgren was when they beat us.

You must not like Talbot or Kennedy either because they are known for the same. Not at PSU but there are several stories about Kennedy & his douschery. Talbot was friendly but he spent a good amount of time on the South Side.

yeah i've heard that about kennedy and i dislike him because of it.

i never really heard anything bad about talbot, just that he had a place in the southside, partied pretty frequently, and would nail puck *****. never heard anything "bad" about talbot though, and he's been nice the few times i've seen him out here in philly.

but talbot and kennedy were never accused of being disrespectful to team staff, popping pills, hooking up with teammates wives, and not buying into the concept of the team (ie poor conditioning, disagreeing with coaching staff, dividing the locker room, etc.). all things that carter/richards were rumored to be involved in. where there's smoke there's fire, with these two.

also please never ever confuse Penn with Penn State/PSU. please.
