Deadline Gone – Lombardi: Pass or Fail?
Lombardi replaced Mitchell With Regehr and gave up a lot to get him but better the Kings than our competition.
Didn’t want him – CBJ gave up to the Rangers what the Rangers gave up for Nash
Would have loved him on the 2nd line but they gave up Filip Forsberg and that would be like giving up Toffoli
a 1st and a goaltender. A steep price to pay, but I think Lombardi could have offered a lot more than Minnesota did
a 2nd and a couple of prospects – Lombardi could have done better
Too teeny tiny
a 1st and 2 marginal players. Lombardi could have offered more and convinced him that playing with Kopitar and living on the beach is better than playing with an always hurt Crosby and living in Piss-burgh. How come Lombardi just can’t close a deal? (see: Gaborik, Kovalchuk, Martin, Richards)
At least he got a 5th for him. Sullivan and Hannan only brought back a 7th
The Kings needed an upgrade from Penner on the 2nd line, who would have been PERFECT on the 4th line. Hey, at least he addressed the D.
So the Coyotes trade Sullivan And Torres the day AFTER they play the Kings
The Wild trades for Pominville the day BEFORE they play the Kings
I LOVE this shit!
I guess we ALL make mistakes!
