In the grand scheme of things, Mike Richards refusing to answer reporters’ questions means little.
But, as the team’s captain, he is the face of the Flyers and a direct conduit to the fans….
Richards has vowed to freeze out the media. He is upset because of stories generated after former teammate Joffrey Lupul, now with Anaheim, was asked recently if he thought he was traded because the Flyers wanted to break up the players who live in Center City and enjoy the night life.
Lupul was asked the question when Anaheim played in Philly on Oct. 10. It was Lupul’s first time back since being part of the trade in which the Flyers acquired Chris Pronger.
After the Flyers blew a late 2-0 lead in that game and dropped a 3-2 shoot-out loss, Richards asked reporters not to mention their night life in their stories.
