Cammalleri, Frolov, Boyle and others where not "Lombardi types" ... neither is Kopitar really, but even Lombardi had Patrick Marleau, in San Jose, so he knew he couldn't ice a team full of ALL "Mike Ricci's" like he'd want. Dustin Brown fits the Lombardi mold very well though. But I digress, congrats on Boyle for finding success in the NHL, most of us that saw him especially at the training camps, knew he had NHL talent, the Kings just didn't handle him right, have room for him, or really want him in the mix is what it boiled down to.
