I hate every move Lombardi has made in the past 2 years. Sturm, Penner, Richards, Smyth....all crap.
Do you not understand that scoring in Philadelphia isn't the same as scoring in L.A? If Simmonds was still in LA, he wouldn't have even close to the number of points he has now. It's foolish to compare the two right now. The Kings were ready for the Richards move (he is still young, you know) but they need to add another scorer or two. With the system the Kings play, they need two scoring lines, a checking line, and an energy line. Right now they have one scoring line, a checking line, and two energy lines. That's not gonna get the job done. Period.
