What "risks" do you think Detroit had made? Just curious.

Mike Gillis, after Ken Holland, please to answer this, Mike Gillis, please...anyone, please, Mike Gillis...

But to answer your question, Cammalleri wasn't worth 5 million, Gaborik is now showing why DL didn't want him on a 5 year contract, Hemsky IS injury prone, Semin is gonna cost to much for just one year, and Penner I could live with the acquisition if the price is right.

As far as acquistions, think about that, 5 of the 8 were acquired in his first year or two as FILLER PLAYERS, Stevens was hired after Hardy resigned, it's not like he fired an assistant coach to hire him,

but hey, you gotta love revisionist history.
This is part that I don't understand. Cost too much of what? Money? Cap space? Prospects? I would argue that the hole at LW is costing the Kings MORE.
