Richards is by far the best all around player on the Flyers. I love that they locked him up long term. In fact, they got him really cheap. The Flyers did very well in this deal. Richards did in a way too. he never has to worry about job security again.
I love this deal. I'll take the 12 year deal. If he flops (there is no idication of that) so be it. It's not like he is getting 10 million per year.
