I am convinced that if Lombardi gets canned it is because of the Richards and Penner deals.

If you Richards was really a game changer the Kings offensive would be better and the coach wouldn't have been fired....this deal was supposed to make us better, not worse...same with Penner....gave up a ton of assets and essentially set us back...

Now Manchester, minus Muzzin, Hickey and Deslauries is devoid of any NHL talent...our chips to bargain with are gone and there is not one forward ready to step in and contribute. There is also a lack of size of the wing and the thing that set the Kings apart the past couple years was big forwards cycling and now with Simmonds, Zeus, and Poni gone that element of success is gone as well.

I would trade Richards and Penner for Schenn, Simmonds, a 2nd rounder, Teubert and a 1st rounder and just re-signed Handzus in a HEARTBEAT.
