So it was Richards and Carter's partying that got them traded from Philly:


Dan Gross: Partying prompted parting? | Philadelphia Daily News | 07/25/2011

Dan Gross of the Philadelphia Daily News got to the bottom of those rumors and was told by two unnamed Flyers that the partying lifestyle was the reason for the Carter and Richards deals.

Quote:
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 Manager 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."

As the captain of the Flyers, not showing much leadership if you refuse to make that pledge.

Stupid fucken pledge tho, these guys are adults not children and the best feeling after a hard game is having a ice cold beer while trying to relax.

Except in the case of Richards and Carter it was way beyond having a beer after games. From what I've heard from guys I know that play in the league, it was constant benders till 4am on days before practices and games which not only became an issue affecting performance but many also saw it as a sign of not respecting the coach and management and some veterans on the team.

Their constant partying also apparently started to affect the personal/family lives of some of their teammates as well. This isn't like most of the Canucks who drink and party somewhat responsibly, this was way overboard.

It'll be interesting to see how Carter does now as Columbus is a huge party town with OSU there.

Read between the lines, constant partying/drinking started to affect the lives of teammates personal/family lives. Not signing the pledge repeatedly was a slap in the face of the coach and veteran leaders on the team, ie... Pronger

Well for any team to have to institute a policy like the no drinking pledge repeatedly, you have to realize there is a massive underlying problem for them to come to that with grown adults.

Kris Draper to announce retirement tomorrow it appears

Quote:
From TSN
The long and successful NHL playing career of Kris Draper is over.

The Detroit Red Wings have called a news conference for Tuesday in Detroit where Draper will announce his retirement.

In 1157 NHL games, the 40-year-old forward scored 161 goals and added 203 assists, racking up 790 penalty minutes.

A clutch playoff performer, Draper won four Stanley Cups with the Wings. He would also claim the Frank J. Selke Trophy in 2003-04 as the NHL's best defensive forward.

Draper also had a long history of representing Canada, starting with the national team from 1988 through 1990 before moving on to the NHL. He would win World Junior gold in 1990 and 1991, World Championship gold and silver in 2003 and 2005 respectively, the World Cup of Hockey in 2004 and laced them up as part of the 2006 Canadian Olympic team in Turin, Italy.

Draper is also only the fifth player after Alex Delvecchio, Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and Nicklas Lidstrom to play 1,000 games in a Red Wings uniform, finishing with 1,137 games in the red and white.

He was originally drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the third round, 62nd overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. He would play 20 games as a Jet before they traded him to Detroit for $1.
hahaha did not know that future considerations = $1

Not HoF worthy but Draper was probably the NHL's best bottom six guy for a long, long time. Great career.
