Lombardi barely ever makes deals...he is the exact opposite of Bryan Murray or Brian Burke, GM's who are always making moves or at least trying.

Fleishman may not be the answer BUT HE IS BETTER THAN King, Richardson, switching Brown to the LW or wtf the Kings are trying to band aid at the first line.
Who were you willing to give up to get Fleischmann? More than Hannan? Maybe Washington didn't want to be on the hook after this season, since they were trading an UFA to be, and the Kings didn't have any UFA defensemen next summer.

How many times have we seen DL start a deal and then have the other team turn to everyone else and say "were gonna deal player X, here is what the Kings are offering can you better it" and have us get beaten out?
We almost lost WM and at the last minute DL ups the offer and we just barely get him
So if another team at the last minute beats Lombardi's offer, that's bad. But if Lombardi beats an offer at the last minute, it's not really good enough.

now there is another deal that we just wouldn't meet even though we have the ability to do so without a great cost but we somehow lose out again.
How do the Kings beat the Avs offer without a great cost? The Avs traded a defenseman, who will be a free agent, who has 775 games of NHL experience, and another 73 games of playoff experience. Who on the Kings compares to that? Greene? Scuderi? Mitchell? Would they be worth trading in this deal?

True, Fleischmann is better than what the Kings have to throw out there at the moment, but why get all crazy?
