Tambellini hasn't had that experience yet and has played only against other amateurs. I think a season in Manchester will do him good. No need to rush him.

The contracts of many forwards (Roenick, Robitaille, Bure, Klatt, Armstrong, Belanger and Cowan) will be expiring next season. There will be plenty of holes to fill, some that can already be filled with players in the system -- Brown and Cammalleri for example.

IF there is a deal to acquire a top tier defenseman in his prime or mid-to-late 20's, then I say go for it. But if the Kings are going to be adding a player like Brendan Witt or Colin White, they would be giving up too much talent in Cammalleri alone. Those guys aren't the second coming of Scott Stevens.
Just out of curiosity, who would you deal Cammalleri for?

Me, I'd go for Willie Mitchell.
