    So was Kempe not up for arbitration or something? Why is he still unsigned?

    He's an Rfa but there is an article on the interweb from Sweden about his contract negotiations* ,loosely translated it said something about Kempe was upset that Cher covered "Fernando" in Mamma Mia Here We Go Again.

    *The gist- Adrian wants 2m per for 2 yrs, Blake -say what again MF.

    Move him for Puljujarvi. Bigger body. More skill. Higher ceiling. Adds depth to the wing.

    My uneducated guess remains that this is Kempe wanting a one year, prove it deal.

    If the Kings were lowballing on dollars or term, and it were just that simple, he probably would've known that months ago and chosen arbitration.

    If however, the Kings want to lock him in for 3 years at Iafallo money (lol), but Kempe thinks he's poised for a breakout season under the new Sheriff, that could explain why he wouldn't want to have an arbitrator do the arbitrator thing, i.e. put the player's number and the team's number into a calculator and award the number right in the middle for two seasons.

    Maybe Patrick O'Sullivan has the answer.

    And if I were Kempe, I would be open to a trade... to the Rangers, Devils or Panthers.

    According to his press, his attitude would fit right in. But, it would still be an upgrade. In.

    Ooo. If I get drunk enough today I may start a toxic team list thread or write a poem about dragonflies. Either/or, really. [Lols you have fun your way I'll have fun mine.]
