R.I.P. My Friend
I was a casting assistant way back in 1993 and there was a dock worker from Philadelphia who came in to audition. He was a perfect match to play John Cusack’s brother and it came down to James and my friend Nick Cassavetes. I voted for James. I hired him again on “Crimson Tide” and then again on “She’s So Lovely”. Earlier this year I spoke to him about being in my film opposite Kurt Russell and he agreed (although he didn’t want to take off his clothes, as per his character).
I’m going to miss him and so will Kings fans.
I had to laugh this morning as there was a lot of talk about the woeful Chicago power play – Jeez, any Kings fan could have told you what the problem was: JAMIE FUCKING KOMPON!
How many leads can Chicago blow – let me count the ways… Oh, wait, Rask gave up 6 goals. Ugh. Get this over with already, I want trades!
Since I’m moody as fuck tonight I’m gonna spill the beans:
I’m told a deal is “in place” for Bernier. But what do I know. I’m only 1% right.
Was told that Toronto offered the Kings Colborne and two picks – DL turned it down – they then offered Matt Fratin and the 1st -
Islanders have offered Matt Martin (whom I absolutely love) and their 1st – DL doesn’t like Neiderreiter
Flyers aren’t going to part with Coutourier. Maybe Schenn, but does Lombardi like him?
Teams have been asking about Kopitar
Oh and per Pierre LeBrun: “Contract talks between the Kings and Rob Scuderi have been ongoing and both sides are expected to meet again during draft week.”
Oh Part 2 – Kozun signed on for another year of torture in Manchester.
Who the fuck is Bear Grylls?
