The hard-partying ways of Flyers captain Mike Richards and center Jeff Carter played a major role in the organization’s decision to trade both players in June, say two Flyers who played with the pair last season.

Carter was sent to the Columbus Blue Jackets for free agent forward Jakub Voracek and first- and third-round picks in the draft, and Richards was traded to the Los Angeles Kings for Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn.

The two unnamed players said that the Flyers front office was disappointed in Carter and Richards’ longstanding party lifestyle and that teammates were concerned about the pair’s drinking.

Shortly after his arrival in December 2009, coach Peter Laviolette instituted what players came to call the “Dry Island.” Laviolette asked team members to commit to not drinking for a month, and each player was asked to write his number on a locker room board as a pledge. No. 17 (Carter) and No. 18 (Richards) were absent from the board on the first Dry Island, as well as the estimated five more times the policy was instituted.

In a phone interview Thursday, Flyers General Manaer Paul Holmgren confirmed that Richards and Carter hadn’t put their numbers on the board, but said there had been others who declined. “We carry 23 players and there wasn’t 23 numbers up there.”

    so he likes to throw a few back. so fucking what moron! if i had to live in philly, id drink my fucking face off.

    he has put up very good numbers and plays great D on top of that. great PK man, holds record for most 5 on 3 shorthanded goals. he’s a great team guy, confirmed by lappy, not your 2 unnamed players.

    wheres your ducks report faggot! i think you know how shitty your team is and that the kings are on the cusp of being cup contenders. someone seems jealous

    cant wait for that homo-fag-tard khanon to come out to SD. i just hope he doesnt bring his dad with him…. i cant stand child molesters.

    KS, the guy is an alcoholic and a bad influence in the room. Deal with it.

    BTW, who finished ahead last year, the Kings or the Ducks? This is after the Ducks won a Cup and were gonna not be good again for like 50 years or something, right? And still, in your year 5 of the Dumbardi plan … you still finished behind the Ducks? Did you try to commit suicide? Would you like help?

  5. Khanon Says:

    Kings have Richards, Ducks have Koivu. Team Canada, scorer, gritty, leader vs Europussy.

    KS- I’m in SD right now cable man. Wanna meet me up cooka?

  6. Khanon Says:

    Realist- fuck u and your europussies. I’d rather watch baseball then the EuroWings

  7. king_stoner Says:

    im free all day today til 4pm

  8. king_stoner Says:

    Youre such a welching pussy. im so glad that youre a secret ducks fan. you tried to call me out, but you pussed out. i thought you were gonna come down here to show off your MMA skills. you lack hockey knowledge and youre are a bloody queefy vagina.

  9. Realist Says:

    He was busy at the Comicon. He was supposed to have you meet him there but I guess he thought it would be better not too.

  10. Khanon Says:

    KS- You expect me to bail out on the BAR just to kick your ass? I’m in downtown SD. You want a piece of me, come down. Until then, go fuck yourself.

  11. king_stoner Says:

    it took you 15 hours to come up with that pussified excuse. im home from work already. you are what everyone on here and every other site says….. welching pussy, doesnt know hockey, wants his team to resemble the late 80s/early 90s hockey when you could have a couple enforcers out there with all the grabbing going on. wont work in todays NHL. you have to be able to play not just fight.

    i didnt know that the comicon event had a BAR?

  12. king_stoner Says:

    i like how you waited 2 hours after i said i was free to respond to me. FAGGOT

  13. Khanon Says:

    You obviously don’t understand what the BAR entails, cable guy. It’s a full day test from basically 8-5. It takes about 30-40 get back to my hotel, due to all the fucking downtown traffic and bar examinees.

    Regarding enforcers, when the fuck did I say the Kings should carry two enforcers? One is enough, but I want more guys willing to fight and stick up for themselves and their teammates. Is that too much to ask for? Bruins have it. Ducks have it. Blackhawks have it. I want it too. Now go screw over your employer by handing out free cable, you ignorant, white trash, San Diegan.

  14. king_stoner Says:

    i never said you said two enforcers…. you want a whole team of enforcers. no passing, no shooting, no scoring…. just man on man action…. now it makes sense to me why you would want that.

    im so happy you wasted your day taking a test youll never pass.

    ps…… so you knew you werent gonna have time while you were out here, yet you tried to call me out. hhhmmmm, it must have been an empty threat from a welching, arab loving, toe cocksucking, secret duck loving, non bar passing pussy!!!

  15. Khanon Says:

    I have time in the evening after the BAR. Finishing up the second day. One more day left faggy cable guy

  16. TheGreenLaser Says:

    Just be sure you two fags put it up on YouTube.

  17. Realist Says:

    Face it Welching pussy, you made a empty threat to KS and he called your bluff. Don’t ever try to act like an internet tough guy ever again because you’ve been exposed, once again – as a welching fucking PUSSY!

  18. Monk Says:

    he even welches on getting his ass kicked by a pizza faced dough boy!

  19. king_stoner Says:


    khanon did not pass his bar exam!!! i verified it, he welched out!

    he said its cause i got under his skin and he couldnt focus on studying. i kinda feel bad cause this proved what a pathetic loser he actually is. people said he ran out crying and screaming ‘damn you KS!!!!!’

    dont worry, his dad gave him a weird looking ‘hug’ when they left.

  20. Monk Says:

    this is weird watching kingstoner and welching pussy rub dicks over the past few days
