Yummy Delicious Trade Talk!!!
There’s absolutely no scoring from the 3rd and 4th lines – or Richards… and that’s gonna change like Superman in a phone booth.
The Fourth Period HERE is saying the Kings have been speaking with Islanders about:
a) Thomas Vanek
b) Michael Grabner
c) Andrew MacDonald
In return they would very much appreciate…
a) Tyler Toffoli
b) Alec Martinez
c) Jake Muzzin
Okay, lets talk.
Trading TT for a Vanek rental is not only about as smart as double crossing Walter White…
…its not Lombardi.
Trading TT for Grabner and MacDonald would be as tempting as cheating on my wife with Bia and Branca Feres…
…but since MacDonald is a UFA, it would be a straight up swap for Grabner and to be quite honest… I think TT is better in the long run… even though Grabner is Matt Frattin fast!
Now, if they’re taking about Grabner for Muzzin or Grabner for Martinez, I’ll break it down this way..
If it’s Grabner for Muzzin (as much as Muzzin makes me want to bite the heads off live chickens and snakes) I would pass like Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl.
Grabner went 31 games without scoring a goal, so I guess he fits right in. Hell, put him on a line with Richards and Lewis and take bets. For Martinez, I take the chance. Just because Grabner skates really fast.
I like Andrew MacDonald. I like Old MacDonald. I don’t like McDonalds.
Grabner and MacDonald (if he signed with the Kings) for Toffoli and AMart? Would you?
The Fourth Period HERE also add:
“Teams have inquired about Kings young sniper Tyler Toffoli and defenseman Slava Voynov, but a source close to the organization told TFP the team is not interested in moving Voynov, but would consider parting with Toffoli, but “not necessarily for a rental player.”
Kings young center Linden Vey and right wing Tanner Pearson could also be moved, the source said, though Lombardi is high on both of them, as well as Toffoli.
The Kings are also dangling the likes of forward Kyle Clifford and defenseman Alec Martinez in the trade market.”
Kyle Clifford is attractive to teams because he’s:
a) big and strong
c) skates fast
d) can’t put two sentences together which is attractive to the attention spans of fans in Edmonton.
On a team like the Oilers, he’ll immediately put up Dustin Penner like numbers. (Lets be clear: Kings Penner numbers, not Anaheim Penner numbers) Of course, he’ll never win anything ever again, but a player like Clifford is about as attractive as a Thailand ladyboy. Wait… what…?
If Lombardi is “considering parting with Toffoli” then someone should do to Lombardi what Anthony Hopkins did to Ray Liotta in “Hannibal.”
Vey and Pearson are easily sacrificial lambs, Clarisse.
My buddy Eklund HERE says:
“I am told the Oilers have a VERY strong offer that would return the EXACT kind of d-man the team needs moving forward.”
Um, aren’t the Oilers looking for a punishing D-man? Someone who can actually play defense?
Unless they’re willing to take Matt Greene back (doubtful since he’s a UFA), I don’t see them pining for the likes of that UFC madman Martinez or that hulking linebacker Muzzin. So what Eklund is basically telling us is, the Oilers will trade Gagner to San Jose.
The MAYOR was on Sportsnight 960 in Calgary HERE
“A month ago Lombardi was looking for a shutdown defenseman. He has limited assets. There are a lot of minor deals on the table”
“Kyle Clifford and a draft pick for Gagner and he’ll play a bottom six role”
At least Gagner will score twice as many goals as Lewis and it pushes Fraser to the next Greyhound bus station.
It’s not just the Kings!!!
Henrik and Daniel Sedin haven’t scored in SEVENTEEN GAMES (Maybe we should trade them for Dustin Brown and Mike Richards)
Vancouver has dropped 5 straight and have gone 4-11-3 in their last 18 games. THEY HAVE TALENT, TOO!
Staples Center disgusts me.
All of those fuckstain Chicago fans, Pittsburgh fans, Vancouver fans, Red Wings fans…
This is OUR crib you motherfuckers. Where were you when your teams were getting their ASSES KICKED in the playoffs??? Disappeared like Natalee Holloway, the lot of you.
I know some teams don’t allow season ticket holders to sell their seats to opposition fans, I’m shocked the Kings don’t do the same.
Nothing pisses me off more than to have a venue filled with Rangers and Devils fans.
Root for the Kings or stay the fuck home you assholes.
