ain't gonna happen though, and the biggest reason is because they are too much alike... it wasn't Dean. it wasn't Cammalleri -- it was BOTH of them.
YOU ARE RIGHT, it aint gonna happen....I have heard what DL has to say about Cammy in private and its not warm and fuzzy, far from it. The reality of the bargainning was that the NHLPA tried to use Cammy to set high a comparable, (based on Vanek's offer sheet 7 yrs @ 7mMM per) and Cammy, as the NHLPA player rep for the Kings went along with it. THAT IS WHERE THE 6MM original demand came from. In response DL lowballed him, and the parties dug their resepective trenches. The rest is history, and personal attacks.

I'd take him back in heartbeat. DL and half the posters on this board wouldn't.
