Rumors? Yeah, Right!
So my “insider” told me Greene was likely retiring – a 4 year contract doesn’t sound even remotely close to retiring. Even The Mayor said Williams was being shopped and went on the radio and said Richards was as good as gone.
What do we know?
The same as you.
Not a fucking thing.
Rumor mongers didn’t have the following:
Neal for Hornqvist
Purcell for Gagner and then Gagner to the Arizona (got it right bitches) Coyotes for chump change
Vey for a 2nd
So… here’s what my mind tells me tonight:
Dean Lombardi drafted Christian Ehrhoff and he just made a boatload of cash on a buyout, so if he wants to win a cup, he’ll sign with the Kings to replace Willie Mitchell.
Who are we kidding. Lecavalier took the money, so will Ehrhoff. Kovalchuk AND Richards BOTH picked the wrong team over money.
Nashville is desperate for a center since Spezza rebuffed them and Sean Avery tweeted that the city sucked worse than a blind virgin.
So of course Nashville will trade Shea Weber to the Kings for Mike Richards and Voynov, since both are signed to long term deals so they’ll be stuck in misery. I mean, Nashville has lost Hartnell, Timonen. Hamhuis, Raduloff, Ward and Suter… aren’t they TIRED of losing players who would rather play in the KHL?
Voynov and Richards are locked up until your children are in college. Is David Polie really dumber than Megan Fox?
Nashville needs a #1 center – Mike Richards was that. Okay, in Philadelphia maybe… but we’ve already discovered that Poile is about as bright as that Patrick guy from Spongebob
Voynov is suffering from Jack Johnson-itis. You know, “sign a big deal and suck”
Weber is only 28 years old . He’s a 7.8 cap hit. Richards (29) and Voynov (24) are 9.9 so the Kings SAVE money. Okay, so maybe the Kings can pry Colin Wilson as part of the deal.
Anyway, it makes sense.
If I’m Dwight Kings agent and Dwight King had a better year than Dustin Brown who is making 7 million smackers this year, I’m looking at the 2 million dollar offer and telling Lombardi to streck-it-up-de-noompah!
Campbell? Schultz? I’m expecting them BOTH to be signed today.
WTF does Tampa have up its sleeve?
They trade Nate Thompson to the Ducks (they’re getting tougher and tougher) the trade Gagner for Purcell then get RID of Gagner to free up salary… are they gonna make a pitch for PK Subban?
So the Oilers didn’t want to pull the trigger on a Gagner for Clifford deal because they didn’t want to retain any of Gagner’s salary, but they get Purcell instead and TAMPA eats the salary? Good move by the Oilers to remain patient. How would you like to be Sam Gagner, going from playing with Stamkos one minute to playing with Shane Down the next.
Does Clifford get moved tomorrow or Tuesday or NOT? MAKE THE CALL!
I’m saying with Nate Thompson (ANA) and B.J. Crombeen (AZ) coming back to the West, Jordan Nolan better take boxing lessons this off season.
Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau aren’t going anywhere. They’ll have another great season, face the Ducks in the playoffs and lose again. Why? Because McLellan SUCKS as a coach.
Maybe they can con Rob Blake out of retirement.
Speaking of Rob Blake, I had a very heated discussion with a friend of mine about his number being retired. Despite all the bullshit he put us fans through, he was a great player. Fuck!
Why am I still blogging?
Is it me or is Helene Elliott looking more and more like that woman from “Throw Mama From the Train?”
