You guys totally miss the point, no one is talking about the hockey part of the trade. I personally would rather have Lubo who is on pace for a 65 point season, but the hockey part is not relevant.

It's a manager who preaches player loyalty and then trades a guy who at the end of his contract would have finished his 13th season with the Kings, if anyone had a Kings tattoo on his butt it was Lubomir Visnovsky.

Now what Dean did was totally within the rules, no one is debating that. He had every right to trade Visnovsky. But if you are going to make trades like that, then don't make BS comments about player loyalties or tattoo's on their butts if you clearly are going to treat them like mercenaries. It was the perfect example of saying one thing and doing another. It was Nick Saban saying "I am not taking the Alabama job" and a week later being introduced. Just don't make comments like that and preach loyalty if you aren't going to live up to them.

Loyalty is a two way street, wouldn't you agree Sydor25?
