Mike Richards .... whiney baby?

So, Mike Richards has his panties in a bunch about P.K. Subban. Richards' team lost 3-0 to the Habs and Richards felt he had to single out Subban for his "actions".

Richards said

"It's just frustrating to see a young guy like that come in here and so much as think that he's better than a lot of people. You have to earn respect in this league. It takes a lot. You can't just come in here as a rookie and play like that. It's not the way to get respect from other players around the league.

"Hopefully, someone on their team addresses it, because, uh, I'm not saying I'm going to do it, but something might happen to him if he continues to be that cocky."

What did Subban do that was so cocky and wrong? He played very hard, getting 3 minor penalties and talked about it. When he was pushed around on the ice ... he fought back.

I wonder what, if anything, critical Richards had to say about Steve Downie's rookie year as a Flyer?

It sounds like a lot of sour grapes and a way for Richards to try and deflect things away from the flyers being shut out by the Habs.
