He is a center right? Was traded in the Brad Richards deal I think..

santiclaws 03-03-2010 12:33 PM

Out of left field, as per usual.

Telos 03-03-2010 12:33 PM

He is very good in the faceoff circle and they just said he is a former captain and a big leadership figure.

AKAY47 03-03-2010 12:34 PM

I hope we gave up a pick for this guy, nothing else, please God

KopitarFAN 03-03-2010 12:35 PM

This is a good pickup IMO. As long as nothing really significant goes the other way.

devilinto 03-03-2010 12:35 PM

Nice pick up as long as we did not give up very much. Good verteran guy.

NomadFan 03-03-2010 12:35 PM

Probably return the Manchesterites and permanently slot Halpern on the 4th line.

Purcell going the other way?

HoverCarle* 03-03-2010 12:36 PM

Good rental. Good on faceoffs, can hold the puck, play the PK etc

MollerManor 03-03-2010 12:36 PM

2009/10 -- 55GP 9 - 8 - 17.

Looks like he is gonna need to pick a new number.

He plays right wing as well I think.

Reaper45 03-03-2010 12:36 PM

Good guy for guys like Cliche and Moller to learn from.

Kopitar-Handzus-Stoll-Halpern down the middle is money in the playoffs.

jimmy1100 03-03-2010 12:37 PM

Purcell or a 4th/5th/6th/7th round draft pick. I can't believe DL would unload anything of value for Halpern though he is a smart pickup IMO.

I'll guess it's a 5th round pick...

Johnny Utah 03-03-2010 12:37 PM

Cliche back to Manchester?

Purcell going the other way seems like an overpayment . I am thinking a 4th/5th rounder sounds about right. But i am speculating...

Telos 03-03-2010 12:38 PM

His highest goal total is 21, his highest assist total is 27, and his highest point total is 46.

no name 03-03-2010 12:38 PM

Isn't our second best center already playing on the wing? I like the idea of having this type of player on the Kings but it sounds like a move just to make a move. I hope we didn't give up more than a 4th rounder.

KopitarFAN 03-03-2010 12:38 PM

Clune-Halpern-Moller on the 4th line wouldnt be bad.

Belanger25 03-03-2010 12:38 PM

Solid addition in my mind. Good player.

Shellz 03-03-2010 12:39 PM

Watching Pierre stand so close, is creepy on TSN.

Johnny Utah 03-03-2010 12:39 PM

Making 2 million but is a UFA....

Skebo 03-03-2010 12:40 PM

UFA at the end of the season.
