I trust the Dean will make every attempt to get the player that he thinks will be the best long term fit for this team.
Live from Las Vegas....All Sarcasm all the time!!!!
I am still waiting on rob scuderi's replacement. From the sounds of it, Andy McDonald might be a decent approximation. Shot blocker, minute eater, nothing fancy. I cannot say I have seen it with my own eyes, as I don't watch a ton of NHL games besides the kings.
That being said, if he's in the mold, it's time for dean to bust out the checkbook, come off season. Or make a reasonable trade at the deadline, if it saves us a little bit of cash/cap space getting the jump on his UFA status.
Good defenders have a far reaching effect on a game, whereas scoring wingers are generally only so useful when they're scoring
I'm doubtful that New York would retain that much of the salary, or at the very least they're going to ask for something big in return for doing that.
A trade? Anyone on the Kings for Amanda Kessel of Women's hockey team.
