Lombardi Collecting Picks, Freeing Up $$$, Trades Gagne to Flyers
This is an unusual amount of activity for Dean Lombardi
First he deals an unhappy and unproductive Loktionov to New Jersey for a 5th
Then he trades a 5th to Florida for, what’s turning out to be, a very quality defenseman
Today, not only did he trade a player who has been a healthy scratch for the past 4 games, he fees up 3.5 million bucks in cap space in order to boost his roster for the home stretch.
I have a feeling he isn’t done.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see Willie Mitchell placed in the LTIL. I mean, the guy WAS cleared by doctors over TWO WEEKS ago, yet you hear nothing about it? Could Willie be pouting? He’s got his cup and now he’s turned into one of those assholes who just wants to collect a paycheck? Or is something REALLY wrong with him and he’s telling the Kings doctors to “fuck off?”
Drew Doughty still doesn’t have a goal through 17 games. Still think he’s worth 7 million a year? As good as he is? I mean, come on, Thomas Hickey has more game winning goals.
How about the defense, which lost Greene and Mitchell and has been pieced together with Drewiske and Muzzin. Can you say “proper development by Lombardi and company?” – The kid from Florida has been pretty decent but I can’t help but think, one more injury to the D and the Kings could be in trouble.
How come no talk of extending Scuderi?
Always love it when the Ducks get spanked in our crib. Now 8-1-2 over the last 11 games. How delicious!
These 150 games in 151 nights coming up scares the shit out of me.
Sorry for the delay in the blogs. Been working on 2 films in 3 cities. Brutal
