He already has been towing the company line. He is the one who gets all of the juicy qoutes and big interviews with DL while a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame who writes for the areas largest paper doesn't.

Kings management has been using the blog as a tool to convey Lombardi's vision. Hammond has never grown impatient or questioned the process: definitely not to the level that Elliot has. He's never bitten the hand that feeds him and was a very good soldier after the Williams incident.

Without the blog, IMO, Lombardi would have been run out of town already...that is if fan unrest here in LA was strong enough to run someone out of town. So much of what is said on the blog is regurgitated on this board as well as the main board, trade board etc...Now that even the pessimist can see a little light at the end of the tunnel, Hammond gets his reward for helping Lombardi and management with their sell job.

I'm not saying it's good or bad, it just is what it is.
