If the Mayor is right...when are we getting MacDonald's filet of Squid sandwich???
I can't see dealing a 1st in 2014 for a rental that isn't going to help all that much. Dean was hamstrung be the salary cap in the last off season and during this season because the Kings didn't have any crappy contracts to unload with compliance buyouts. I would rather see him take his time and reload in the off season.
For example, I really don't want Cammalleri if it costs the Kings a 1st round pick.
Hockey's original bad boy. The "Cowboy" Howie Young
He repeatedly told me I was crazy and that I made myself look bad because I would trade Brown. While I understand people will have different opinions than me, I kind of expected he would give reasons why and/or address my reasons for wanting to deal him. Nope, he just wanted to take jabs at me. I lost a lot of respect for his Hockey IQ and level of professionalism, but who knows, maybe he does have "insider info".
edit - or a team could eat salary for him, but i doubt that's going to happen on anyone other than an expiring contract.
i could see DL trying to get Kulemin - possibly in a 3-way trade. Toronto needs to dump salary, the Kings could use a scoring LW and I'm guessing someone would take a guy like Clifford.
Kulemin -> L.A.
Clifford -> ?
prospect -> TOR
TOR clears room for Bolland and gets a prospect (probably mid-level at best)
L.A. gets their LW for their top-6
Third team gets Clifford for this year and next for a mid-level prospect.
Could see a team like Florida or Buffalo or someone else that could use a guy like Clifford do that kind of deal.
