Flyers Name Richards Captain

In the most anti-climactic news of the Flyers offseason, Ed Moran of the Daily News is reporting that Mike Richards will be named the next captain of the Flyers.

Richards was the obvious choice for the role, given his unselfish game and team-first attitude. Not that there weren't other alternatives, such as Kimmo Timonen or even Simon Gagne, but given the Flyers' history of employing a captain with sandpaper to their game and the sheer magnitude of his contract (12 years, $69 million), Richards seemed to be a natural to follow into the role.

Hey man, one of the "tardbilly" Steelers fans who got to your site through the KSK comments section. Some pretty good content here without the douchebaggery of The 700 Level.

Best of luck holding off the Mets and I hope the Eagles destroy the Redskins in the most painful manner possible.

Also, I hope the entire Flyers organization comes down with an Ebola-like plague.

Enjoy the game this Sunday.
