Flyers' Richards has concerns about Ben Lovejoy's skating ability - 10-16-10

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Flyers captain Mike Richards has never been known as being someone who is fond of dealing with media. He did little to combat that repuation after tonight's 5-1 home loss to the Penguins.

Not that he's the first person to do this, but Richards complained about Matt Cooke not wanting to fight, THEN:

-Suggested Sidney Crosby should fight Flyers forward Daniel Carcillo.

-Accused the Penguins of falling down "pretty easy" when asked about his spear to Ben Lovejoy's crotch.

-And finally, walked away from reporters telling them he had given them enough quotes.

So that's what leadership is?
