Following the Flyers 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night, former Flyers captain Mike Richards was asked if he was surprised the Flyers fans booed him and fellow former-Flyer Jeff Carter after they both spent six years with the club. "No, I got it last time so I gave him a heads up," said Richards. "They boo Santa Claus, so they’re not going to not boo Richards or Carter."
Santa Claus and a double-negative all in the same sentence.
He had to know this was going to bother Philadelphia fans. You don't spend six years in one city and not know what makes the fans go nuts.
Richards, 29, has been relegated to the Kings fourth line recently. He has 10 goals and 30 assists for 40 points this season. The Flyers made out pretty well in the deal acquiring Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn. Simmonds has 24 goals and 30 assists for 54 points this season while Schenn has 18 goals and 21 assists for 39 points on the year.
