Blockbuster Trade: Mike Richards To LA Kings for Brayden Scehnn and Wayne Simmonds

As if one blockbuster trade wasn’t enough for an afternoon, the Philadelphia Flyers made another one according to Gord Miller of TSN.  The Flyers agreed to trade their captain Mike Richards to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for top-prospect Brayden Schenn and forward Wayne Simmonds.  

Combine this with the Jeff Carter trade to Columbus and Philly has drastically changed their team in the course of an hour.  There have been murmurs about problems in the Flyers dressing room and if these don't prove those were true, they certainly show they wanted to change it up.
