I'd rather him not... or any of the Kings for that matter. 2006 still stings. The Kings started off on fire that season, going in to January with a 27-14-2 record. Then the Olympics happened, Frolov and Demitra (2/3rds of the Kings top line) were injured during the Olympics, and then the wheels fell off the wagon. The Kings wound up firing Andy Murray in March and finished the season 41-35-5. 10th place.

Fortunately Canada is so deep they'll probably pass up on our Canadian talent, but the US team will probably grab Brown, Johnson and Quick, Russia will nab Frolov, etc.

Thankfully, Slovenia doesn't ice a hockey team.
