PHILADELPHIA - SEPTEMBER 29: Mike Richards #18 of the Philadelphia Flyers looks on from the bench area during NHL preseason game action against the Minnesota Wild at the Wachovia Center on September 29, 2009 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Under the visor, Mike Richards still looks the same. It's the rest of his makeover that still seems out of place as he prepares for his Philadelphia homecoming. He wears No. 10 instead of 18 and the ''C'' has been stripped from his jersey. Oh yeah, the jersey. Gone is the orange and black of the Philadelphia Flyers. Richards wears the Los Angeles Kings sweater now, a uniform he's still getting used to four months after his shocking trade out of Philly. Richards returns Saturday night for the first time since general manager Paul Holmgren dealt him the same day he traded Jeff Carter. Richards was Philadelphia's captain and led them to the Stanley Cup finals in 2010. None of that mattered when the Flyers decided to transform the roster in the offseason, moves that have paid off with a 3-0 start.
