The view from Philadelphia

First, a hello and thanks to those Philadelphia Flyers fans who came on board yesterday to share their thoughts about the Mike Richards trade. Very insightful and helpful, and you’re always welcome here! How did the Richards trade get covered in the Philadelphia media? Here’s a sampling of stories, the last of which is a transcript of GM Paul Holmgren’s conference call, in which he talks about the trade and the potential of Brayden Schenn.
