Dan Carcillo Traded to Kings / Penner Signs With Ducks
The Los Angeles Flyers just added Dan Carcillo to their roster, reuniting him with former Flyers Richards and Carter in exchange for L.A.’s own sixth-round selection in the 2015 NHL Draft. If Carcillo plays 40 or more games with the Kings in the 2013-14 season, the Blackhawks receive a fifth-round pick instead.
Acquiring an agitator for 825,000 bucks and a UFA after this season, probably spells the end of the Kyle Clifford era in Los Angeles as he’s probably asking for too much as a RFA.
It doesn’t make sense why Lombardi would trade one of his favorite players, but then again he traded Simmonds who used to sleep on his couch.
Either that or Trevor Lewis is a goner.
Kings now have only 2.1 million dollars left in cap space with Clifford, Lewis and Nolan still unsigned.
Dustin Penner has also officially signed with the Ducks for a year worth 2 million – Of course we pay out the nose for a guy who couldn’t score, now he’ll go across town and with Perry and Getzlaf, will probably pot 15 goals easy.
It’s been nearly 24 hours since it was announced that Ron Hextall has left the Kings for the Flyers and again, not a PEEP from Lombardi about, “What a great job he did”, or “Having him here for 7 years…” or “His stellar contributions to Manchester” – Doesn’t ANYONE ELSE find this weird?
