    I actually flew into Edmonton the day they signed Lucic. I was standing in the customs line wearing my Kings hat and there on the TVs is Lucic in a brand new Oiler jersey being interviewed. A guy next to me in an Oilers shirt asked me what I thought about it. I said that I would like to see him stay but not at that price and length of contract. He said he was thrilled to get him, to toughen up the team and help guard McDavid. He then stated how the contract scared the hell out of him due to the length and money. He said he thought Lucic would only be good for 2 to 3 years and then he would be dead weight for the majority of it.

    BTW, the guy and other's in the Edmonton airport were really cool, even though I was Kings gear. They just wanted to chat about hockey.

    Calgary? Not so much. Going through security a guard shot me a dirty look, I think it was the Kings shirt and hat, although I was wearing my puck rock leather jacket. When was about to pass through he barked at me to turn around and "Get on your knees! Hands behind your head!" So he then gives an aggressive pat down and he searches my pockets. So while I am being treated like a terrorist, the rest of the line is just staring in shock and disbelief. Right in front of me is this group of cute girls, some with the WTF look on there face, others look nervous. So while I'm getting the rough pat down I just wink at them with a grin on my face.

    So, I finally get through, and to be fair a couple other guards came up to me and apologized and said he should not have done that. Then I met up with my those I was traveling with, which happen to be the wives of three of pals of mine, good lookin' gals. (Why I was with them is a different story).

    The cool thing that came from that was when while waiting for a bit in the airport, if guys where checking out my friend's wives all I would have to do is turn and give them a look and they would turn away like I had a gun. And I did get a lot of looks from chicks, winks and smiles. I guess me getting roughed up in security made everyone think I was tough guy or a bad boy or something.

    Don't forget that we almost resigned Sekera which the Oilers graciously took from us for 6y/$33M

    Well, It was a off the rails experience.

    Edit: I also told it because it happened 4 days after the Edmonton story so it came to mind and to warn my fellow LGK'ers to watch out for an a-hole guard in Calgary who hates the Kings and their fans.

    If I had a story like that, I'd share it too.

    Apparently Edmonton does a great job of saving us from ourselves.

    Too bad Gabo didn't want to go to the Oil. They could have helped us out quite a bit.

    I'm actually happy Gabo didn't go to EDM since we did receive a nice return in both Phaneuf and Thompson. Both have been the energy players we needed.

    Sekera would be the second best defenseman on this team.

    36 games this season and 8 assists. Sekera is injury prone and a waste of money
