Mike Richards Speaks About Dry Island, Blogs

Mike Richards called in to the FAN 590 in Toronto today. He spoke about Dry Island: [via Puck Daddy]

"It started out being more of a joke around the locker room. Something that we could do as a team, or joke around as a team, is to have something to joke around about.

"There was a handful of guys that did it — mostly younger rookie guys, first year or second year players. Then it went from being a fun thing to somehow getting out and then just exploding. Turned something that was really nothing into a big deal. It happens with the bloggers and the people in Philadelphia blowing things out of proportion.

"I did an interview last week and said I really have no regrets leaving Philadelphia, especially going out on that Dry Island thing."


It wasn’t a big deal to the current LA King.

Puck Daddy has comments from Danny Briere, as well.

It wasn’t just Dry Island, however, El Capitan spoke more about bloggers (Keyboard Warriors, as the blowhard host of the show called them):

“The pictures aren’t a bad thing, it’s more the rumors and people’s opinions, because it snowballs then people grab it and turn it into a story.

And now that it’s so competitive, that one [blogger] is competing against another guy with sources and coming up with stories and hearing something then trying to run with it, I think that’s kind of what gets people in trouble, too.

It’s those picture phones and the blogs that kind of get people in trouble, I think”


Who are these people of which he speaks?!

  1. Poor Kyle you must be crushed, grab some sorbet and have a good cry but remember we told you he’d break your heart, better to do it off the ice then on.

  2. the more i hear this guy bitch, the more im glad hes gone. I was one of your fans richie, I even own your jersey, but you ran yourself out of town so stop putting the blame on anyone but yourself.

  3. This guy was one of the Faggots that let that fucking hippy stink up the locker room and cost us a cup. Fuck that faggot, have fun sucking dick in LA faggot.

  4. $100.00 Says James is so angry because Richie and Carts tag teamed his gf last year in Sea Isle… Or was it this summer James?

  5. “grab some sorbet and have a good cry” mm | August 31, 2011 at 02:36 PM
    Hahahahahahah Laddie probably lost his sorbay casche to Irene’s wrath, as he high-tailed it out from Ma and Da’s becahhouse basement to his “girlfriend”‘s parents’ basement, and he only had time to take his “allowence” checks with him and not his beloved sorbay or vodtkas.

  6. Is it me or is Mike Richards slowly becoming Donovan McNabb on blades? I’m so sick of both of their shit. Enough already.

  7. Sweet lake trout Richards bagged there in the photo. Almost as sweet as the trouser trout Richards used to bang McGinty’s daughter who likely is incapable of spelling or making a good decision, just like Dad.
    Hockey is the sports equivelant of that Schmidt’s pouinder in the back of the fridge. When there’s nothing else left to drink in the house, it’ll do.

  8. Hahahahah if I have any daughters at least they’re getting more trouts, trouser or otherwise, than Hummerburgler could ever dream of having to give. Sicko should be sent Pervert Island for creaming over Richards trout. Aren’t there laws against diddling with animals?

  9. Why is IronBalls spelling at times erratic and at others completely normal? Do you fake accents in real life as well?

  10. if ritchie showed the same passion he shows for fishing to playing ice hockey while he was part of the orange and black, the stanley cup would be reeling in that lake trout with him.

  11. “It started out being more of a joke around the locker room. Something that we could do as a team, or joke around as a team, is to have something to joke around about.”
    Well, when the Captain of the team treats it like a joke…… See you asshole, that’s exactly why your ass got shipped off. What an entitled punk you’ve turned out to be Richards. All that talent in an immature punk who couldn’t lead a horse to water, let alone an entire team.

  12. @ Farmer TiTim:
    1) WTF’s “erratic”?
    2) What does me spelling have to do with me accent?
    3) I esshoe the dickshunairy when I’m pressed for time, so I spell out the words the way it sounds best to me inside ears. Besides, some times some big words are easier to spell (and thus get right) than other big words at other times. Savvy?
    4) Why are your testickles titanium? Was it from a combine accident, or do you fake being a farmer in real life as well?
