Mike Richards: Flyer Captain, Potty Mouth, Finalist For Lady Byng?

New, comments

Okay, okay, so no, Mike Richards isn't a finalist for the Lady Byng Trophy. But um, you can understand my laughter when every Flyers writer...

DOnt think Mike Richards will like this: finalist for Lady Byng

#Flyers Mike 3ichards, Datsyuk and St. Louis nominated for Lady Byng.

Mike Richards is a finalist for the Lady Byng award.

... thought he was, for some reason. They all offered quick corrections via Twitter, saying that it's in fact Brad Richards, not Mike, but that doesn't make this any less hilarious. Would they really give the award for the "player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability"  to THIS guy?

Would've been too good to be true, really. Better luck next year, Mike.
