In Topic: Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

27 August 2015 - 10:44 AM


sources claim police found “some pills in a single bottle” during a search, adding that “it was clearly intended for his personal use.”

Today, Manitoba RCMP confirmed that on June 17, Richards was involved in an incident at the Emerson Border Crossing that eventually led to his arrest (on August 25). Per ESPN, Kings GM Dean Lombardi reportedly told some GMs of the Richards situation at the NHL Entry Draft, which was held in Florida on June 26-27.

Two days after the draft, Los Angeles terminated Richards’ contract.

As for the next steps, Richards will now appear in Provincial Court on Sept. 10 and, though he was charged earlier this week, still needs to enter a plea.

The Pittsburgh/Philly rivalry I would say was right up there, that was only a couple years ago. Though I guess it didnt last that long at that intensity.

Hate both of those teams, but I love watching them meet in the post season.

I have a black car. :)

Also when I played high school hockey. A kid on my team had white skates. Let's just say we made fun of him a lot lol.

We had a guy we faced all the time that had white skates.. he got a lot of "what, were they all out of hockey skates?" :P

In Topic: What's your roster lines ?

Serious question.  What about this roster makes it much different than last year's?  Keep in mind, last year we barely made the playoffs and got bounced in the first round.  That's been a common pattern the last few years.  


Is the addition of Green and Richards enough to make this a division contender that can go deep in the postseason?  I don't see it.  



Weren't the wings contending for the divisions top spot before semi collapsing toward the end of the season last year? 


The few changes could work wonders.

Howard/Mraz = 1a & 1b

Side note: with all this depth, the camp "teams" for scrimmages will be better than ever :)
