You guys are hilarious with your one way BS, you know the goal is to score the most goals. You want all these gritty guys and then wonder why we have trouble scoring goals in the playoffs.

Montreal is one win away from knocking out the Presidents Trophy winners and defending Cup Champs in back to back series...largely on the back one "one dimensional and unproven" Mike Cammalleri.

And as for the rumors of him not wanting to play in LA, after the 07 season he and his agent were looking for a 5 year deal worth 25 million. He wanted to stay a King at the time, maybe the arbitration situation changed things. But if DL had done the smart thing and signed him then he would still be here, we would have a young sniper in his prime for another 2 years, instead of a broken down Smyth for the same cap hit.

The fact remains LA had a homegrown guy who is playing like one of the better snipers in the league right now, traded him for a draft pick which turned into Colten friggin Teubert, this was obviously an awful deal, considering the thing the Kings are most lacking right now is a 1st line sniper.
