    Default Ovie Stays, Fleury Goes, Tank Who Knows?

    As expected, Alexander Ovechkin remains in DC with a five-year 47.5 million dollar extension, but surprisingly Vegas trades Marc-Andre Fleury to ChiTown, which apparently also surprised Fleury, who may not go.

    Meanwhile, Vladimir Tarasenko remains in Missouri, for the time being. Most LGK posters here seem to feel a trade for Tank would be a mistake, but I still say Blake should go for it. So does this guy, and it's hard to argue with his logic:

    Kings Should Have Tarasenko as a Top Trade Target

    Kind of ****y a Vegas not to let Marc-Andre Fleury finish out his career there. I can't believe they went with Robin lehner over a proven Cup winner. I don't think Vegas can win it with Robin.

    I'm with you on going for Tank, as long as the price is reasonable.

    I'd be ok with adding Tarasenko at the right cost. That writers lineup did not include Kempe or Byfield?

    My preferences would be:
    1. Landeskog
    2. Forsberg
    3. Monahan
    4. Tarasenko
    6. DeBrusk/Bertuzzi

    Anything that causes Vegas consternation is ok by me. F 'em.

    I still say you push all the chips (except Byfield) to the center of the table for Landeskog. I still think he ends up in Colorado or even Vegas (if they can fit him under the cap...they just cleared $7MM out)

    But my guess is, we don't get any of these guys but get another "he's ok but not a star" player.

    Real class act, eh? Makes you want to hate Vegas even more, as if that were possible. Even the way they dumped Gallant was bizarre. He was more surprised than anyone.

    “Usually you have an idea. You can feel something. But I didn’t have that. Maybe that was my own stupidity, I don’t know. I never felt like anything like that was going to happen.”

    -Gerard Gallant to the Las Vegas Review-Journal after he was fired.

    This seems to be a trend for Vegas...talk about creating bad karma. As santiclaws stated in another thread, just look at the way they dumped Haula...he got to the practice facility and his access card didn't work. Surprise! You've been fired! Hit the road Jack!

    Wow.

    Hopefully this comes back and bites Vegas in the ass one day.

    Hmmm. I'm going the other way. Ruthless GM move. Wonder what McCrimmon would have done in 2017 if he were the GM of the Kings instead of whatshisname?

    So Landeskog apparently offered $7mm/7 years. Would you offer $8/7 if you were the Kings?

    I would. Just do what everyone else does when he's worn out - send him to Arizona with a draft pick or two. I don't see the problem.
