8. Mike Richards, Philadelphia Flyers

Wanted for bad attitude off the ice

Mike Richards was team captain of the Flyers when he was dealt to L.A. in 2011.

After the trades (alternate captain Jeff Carter was also traded away that offseason),

rumors started to swirl about the party culture that had grown in the Philly dressing room.

As the story goes, head coach Peter Laviolette challenged his players to lay off booze for a month,

and that was apparently too much for Richards (and Carter) to handle.

They did not pledge to participate, and as team leaders many others followed,

and thus the locker room and team were divided. All this over booze.
