Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Sarah Baicker of CSNPhilly,
Flyers coach John Stevens has received his share of criticism over the past weeks, as the Flyers have lost five of their last six games, slipping from fifth place in the Eastern Conference to ninth place.
Recently, team captain Mike Richards has been a target for blame, as well. Richards has been called out – especially in fan circles – for what has been interpreted as a passive, quiet style of leadership.
Chris Pronger even chipped in earlier this week, saying Richards needed to “show the rest of the players that (the Flyers are) his team.”
Stevens, however, defended the Flyers’ captain at practice Wednesday, and said that it is important to remember there is more than one way to successfully lead a team.
