Don't disrespect the conference trophies

Les Randall, Pouce Coupe, B.C.

I was glad to see Mike Richards accept the Prince of Wales Trophy with professionalism. I get that the goal is to win the Stanley Cup, but there are 14 other teams that would love to be winners of the conference.

I think Chicago showed a lack of respect and manners in the way they viewed the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl like it was a piece of garbage.

Thank you, Philadelphia.

I've been a Flyers fan for 35 years and was glad Richards showed some class with his acceptance of the cup.
