Thoughts on This Possible Buffalo Deal
I love when the internet is abuzz with trade rumors!
Sure, it makes sense that Darryl Sutter would want to reunite himself with Robyn Regehr. He’s a big bodied defenseman who once hit Justin Williams so hard, he separated his shoulder. He’s a left handed shot and has actually scored 15 goals a season. Hell, if he scores ONE for the Kings, that would be 100% more than Drew Doughty. He would be, as Lombardi call it, a “right fit”.
He’s also got a NMC and the last time that happened, Ray Whitney wanted a 2 year extension from the Kings to waive that clause. Lombardi was unwilling to give that 2 years so the deal fell through. Whitney eventually signed a 2 year deal in Phoenix and promptly became their best player.
Buffalo may not want Drewiske and Martinez is a bit high of an asking price for a rental. The Kings have been grooming Campbell for a while so I dought they part with him. Bodnarchuk seems like the likely expendable candidate.
Theres also been talk Jordan Leopold would be the D-man coming over. My thought? Not a fucking chance.
My buddy mentioned Sekera and that would make sense too but why would Buffalo part with a young, inexpensive D-man?
There’s also ben talk of taking Drew Staffors and his whopping 2 goals and 4 million dollar contract off of Buffalo’s hands, but there’s a REASON he’s miserable in Buffalo. Maybe he just plain SUCKS and playing for the Kings and especially Darryl Sutter might not be the change of scenery he’s looking for.
No, the Kings aren’t trading Bernier for Miller
Nice article on Rich Clune yesterday and his battle with the bottle
Loktionov seems to have settled in nicely in New Jersey. A goal and an assist last night brings his total to 4 goals and 3 assists.
How is Jake Muzzin +11 and Mike Richards -7?
