Perron Talks Heat Up?
Just when I thought it would be another unadventurous night at the mall with the kids, I get this text:
“Perron to Kings heating up.”
During the draft, the Kings GM and the Blues GM Doug Armstrong had quite the lenghthy conversation and word began to trickle down that the Blues were shopping David Perron and Lombardi was very interested.
With the signing today of Derek Roy (for an overpriced 4 million I might add) Lombardi is drooling trying to pry Perron away from the Blues.
- The Blues have lost against the Kings two straight years in the playoffs
- They don’t want to trade him to the Kings only to have him burn them again
- It may cost Dean his 1st round pick AND Toffoli (too much, right?) But Lombardi pays for what he wants: See: Carter, Richards. It may wind up being the beloved Clifford.
David Perron is exactly what the Kings need in a LW. Strong on the puck, 25 years old, affordable salary for the next 3 years, 40 points (probably a lot more with Carter and Richards), and insurance in case Dustin Brown leaves.
Plus he has a history of concussions so he fits in perfectly.
Rumors rarely come true (see yesterday as a perfect example. How many correctly predicted Ryan was going to Ottawa? I mean, they were talking for a while weren’t they?), but this is one I hope does come true and I don’t mind losing Clifford in the process
As for the Brunner rumors? Not gonna happen. Why would it. We have Toffoli.
What about Brendon Morrow? He’s a DL type of player. Has always loved his “warrior” attitude but correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t he a healthy scratch during the playoffs? He may be plan “F” (update: he had a busted knee cap)
Dustin Brown fires agent? I asked his agent when they would be negotiating only to have the Mayor inform me Dustin let Scott Norton go and will negotiate his own deal. What’s the old saying? “He who represents himself has a fool for a client?” – Lets hope Dustin doesn’t remember Lombardi was thinking about trading him two seasons ago until (allegedly) Lie-weekly talked him out of it.
It’s Saturday night and Penner is tweeting. He could be doing more productive things, like going to the gym and getting in shape for next season.

HACKED! Think Phil Kessel had anything to do with this?
