Just when you think the Flyers pulled off the most unprecedented move in NHL history - trading Chris Pronger's contract to Arizona - the Los Angeles Kings are trying to do something even more unprecedented.
Former Flyers captain Mike Richards is no longer a member of the Kings. This much is known. But it's how the Kings parted ways with the veteran forward that is interesting.
Instead of a traditional buyout, the Kings cited a breach of contract on Richards part, allowing them to terminate the deal instead of buy Richards out.
