Opening Night and No Kopitar Extension
Chicago got it done with THIER two franchise players.
Once again, the Kings dilly-dally. Stinks of a Dave Taylor fart in an elevator all over again.
Can you imagine the mass-exodus of fans who leave when Kopitar goes east and Lucic heads to Vancouver. Poor Doughty will have to suffer like Kobe has. Sure they both have a couple of rings but it must suck to know… well… you’re going to suck.
This sucks. And it will be hanging over the Kings heads the entire season.
O’Neill traded – MVP of the AHL and all he’s worth is a conditional 7th round pick? Doesn’t say much about O’Neill, does it. Sure he could have been claimed on waivers for nothing… but this is such a huge fucking problem for Lombardi, not locking these guys down to decent contracts so that nobody WILL take them.
Lombardi also fucked up… once again… by letting his Cup winning goaltender Berube head to the Island… for nothing.
Ontario’s best player is now Michael Mersch? From Champs to Chumps in one year.
Let’s face it… replacing Robyn Regehr with Christin Ehrhoff is a downgrade. Replacing Slava Voynov, with nobody, again… is a downgrade. We’ll see how the combo of Andreoff/Weal does to replace Stoll. Lucic should be… I say SHOULD be an upgrade over Williams.
I mean, Jeff Shultz makes the team? Please.
If this is the projected defensive pairings..
Quick is going to see more rubber than a Vegas hooker.
A lot of former players out of jobs today
