St Loo Makes 1st Move – What Will Lombardi Do?
Can I start calling Dean Lombardi, D-Lo? I mean, we are in Hollywood after all? Too gay?
With the Blues getting their men (and paying a heavy price for it) Doug Armstrong has thrown down the gauntlet. Sick and tired of being bounced by the Kings in the playoffs because of inconsistent goaltending, Buffalo gave up two free agents to be for a decent winger in Stewart, a future top 6 forward in Carrier, a 1st round pick in a good draft (2015) and a 3rd round pick as a token throw-in.
San Jose will likely counter in the next few days and I look for the Ducks to acquire Moulson, Cammalleri or Vanish.
So what does Lombardi do?
Continue to tell everyone how wonderful Matt Frattin in?
Pay that steep a price for Christian Ehrhoff (who has too stupid a contract to even consider)?
With Dan Girardi now off the market and signing a pretty ridiculous contract, I can only imagine the 3 million dollar a year offers Lombardi has thrown to Greene and Mitchell to stay for another year are about as funny to them as the blow-job scene in “This is 40″ was to me.
Ryan Smyth is certainly the left wing the Kings could use, but after the debacle that happened a few years ago, that name in Lombardi’s ear is about as welcome as deer lice.
Watching Tyler Toffoli try to play left wing is about as uncomfortable as Jimmy Kimmel must be after Jimmy Fallon’s first two weeks of ratings.
Since Buffalo actually PLAYS tonight, their backup in net tonight is Jeff Tyni who works for the AnaheimDucks on game nights.
Please Buffalo, Take Matt Frattin!
He skates fast.
He hits people and bounces off, but at least he hits people.
He’s young and will fit right in with your rebuild
He’s cheaper than My Uncle Herb with a penny.
You need a RW that can play in a wide open system instead of a real system
You can give us anyone on your roster. Tallinder, hell, I’d even take John Scott.
Please, just take the guy.
Doughty needs a solid defensive partner. Just look at what Doughty did in the Olympics when he had a real defenseman covering him. Jake Muzzin looks like a white guy in Compton half the time.
Martin St Louis isn’t going anywhere.
What is wrong with Ryan Callahan? You’re in New York, dummy. What, you’re gonna sign a big deal in the off season to play in Columbus the rest of your career?
