its confirmed on the main board.

Johnny Utah 08-25-2010 01:23 PM

Yes!

Best news this summer!

DeeMeck 08-25-2010 01:24 PM

I don't trust a freakin soul until TSN or Hammond.

Reaper45 08-25-2010 01:24 PM

I'm worried about his head.

Johnny Utah 08-25-2010 01:25 PM

That was a cheap hit by Malkin. He has been out for half a year and passed physicals with LA, SJ and Wash and a hard one according to him in Vancouver.

Cutty Sarkn3ss* 08-25-2010 01:28 PM

Wonder what the numbers/length are . . I'm thinking 3 years / 3.5 Cap

In related news Staples Center going to replace the glass boards with Saran Wrap and the ice with foam rummer.

Winroba 08-25-2010 01:33 PM

Kyper is wrong a fair amount of the time and nobody else has reported this - good news for Kings fans but nothing to trust fully yet

jimmy1100 08-25-2010 01:33 PM

**** yes!!! Good news for LA!!!

Yes, it's an injury risk, but we Kings fans pretty much expect that, right?

Glad to have Mitchell though, because, if he IS healthy, he's a SOLID addition to this team!!!

WOOOOOO!!!

This completely makes me forget about Kovi...

givemeda411 08-25-2010 01:36 PM

You guys are getting a great defensive player in Mitchell, you may not like him as much during the season but he's a monster in the playoff. Not sure about his health...

Ziggy Stardust 08-25-2010 01:40 PM

Kings confirm the signing.

Playoffs? Is that the little 2-week annoyance we had in April that interupted our early tee-times? :nod:

Yes!!!!!!

Now I can get a little excited.

Dave33 08-25-2010 01:43 PM

Well worth the injury risk, at the very least he gives extra development time to some of the prospects. Good job, DL.

Sydor25 08-25-2010 01:44 PM

Nice. The Kings were probably the only 2 year contract offered.

What number does he wear? Give him #4!


Now that Willie signed, can Kovalchuk be next? :)

DeeMeck 08-25-2010 01:44 PM

Told you DL would get something done before Hockeyfest....lol

JDM 08-25-2010 01:45 PM

And just like that we are a much better team.

KopitarFAN 08-25-2010 01:46 PM

When healthy.....

Doughty-Scuderi
Johnson-Mitchell
Prospect-Greene
Wiske

I like it.

Live in the Now 08-25-2010 01:46 PM

Great signing, not worried about his health. It's time to take a risk. If he gets hurt, we'll have to eat the deal. But it's better to go for it and hope for good health than not go for it at all.

ibleedkings 08-25-2010 01:46 PM

Finally something!!!! yes

BigKing 08-25-2010 01:47 PM

Well boys, the team is improved from last season as Mitchell is much better than O'Donnell. As long as he stays healthy--and once Greene is back--I think we are looking at one of the better defenses in the league to go along with a Quick/Bernier tandem. If that is a bit much to say, I don't think I'm wrong to say that the Kings have the best defense in the Pacific Division.

Looking at the cap space available, the choice between the risk that Mitchell is versus doing nothing is an easy choice.

If he's healthy, he's a guy that is signed on July 1st. Much better player than Sutton so kudos to Lombardi for getting this done.
