    Looks like this pic should be moved to the alumni section...

    Can't say that the Kings are better off with a Phaneuf buyout over a Gaborik LTIR.


    Can't say that the Kings are better off with Blake N' Robitaille over Lombardi.

    They have shown to be inept at changing the direction the team was going in at the end of April '17.

    Cap hit is irrelevant for the next 2 to 3 years. Why all the angst? What's $1 million against the cap if it goes up by $3-4 million?

    The Doughty, Kopitar, Brown and Quick deals have always been the cap killers.

    Ideally, the team needs a bunch of guys under 25 who are making 2 million or less for the next 3 years.

    Now the team has to look at the best way to deal with a crippled Jeff Carter @$5.25/season.

    They needed the roster spot more than the cap space.

    For who? Paul Ladue? He's done nothing to earn it for 3 seasons now. Roy? He's not top 4. MacDermid? He's fun to watch but he's slow so bottom pairing at best. The Kings better hope that they get Byram because I don't see anyone ready to seize a job on the blueline. Maybe Mikey Anderson in the spring.

    So we'll end up using the newfound space to overpay for some middle-pairing free agent defenseman.

    Officially waving the white flag for the next 2 seasons. And I’m ok with it.

    I was hoping Blake and Luc got bought out. But disappointed now.

    Farewell pylon. Now a younger more hungry young dman can take your spot. What a waste of money.

    Stupid, pointless, short-signed and frivolous move. Reeks of desperation. Anyone who takes an honest look at our roster knows we are not competing seriously this year. And thus, we dont need cap space this year. To do what with it? sign someone with the savings we get and suddenly become SC contenders? Sign someone on a short-term deal to.... what?

    I see no end result in which this move makes our team better in any meaningful way. Blake is simply playing out the easy move in an attempt to improve optics short term. If he truly believes saving the cap space, in order to sign someone (anyone) and make us so much better than we'd become a serious team, he's truly delusional.

    Further, while Phanuef was bad last year, and not worth his contract, he was not awful to the point of not worthy of being played. He was fine as a bottom pairing D-man. Obviously overpaid, but still not so grossly bad as some make it to have been.

    The argument of using his spot for one of our prospects ... we dont need to buy him out to do that. He can be the #7 guy even and be a mentor.
