Don't know where else to put this but the Dennis Wideman contract has to be one of the worst contracts handed out in the post lockout NHL.

DiPietro, Redden, Leino, Smyth, Campbell don't hold a candle to this one.

Calgary is being run into the ground, reminds me of the Kings in the mid 90's before DT took over. I realize they don't want to rebuild with Iginla there, but they are doing him a dis-service by keeping him there, send him to a contender and let him try and win a cup and just start over.

Look at their draft history since 03 when they took Phaneuf.

04- Kris Chucko - Bust, forced to retire
05- Matt Pelech - Bust
06- Leland Irving - Huge disappointment
07- Mikael Backlund - Huge disappointment
08- Greg Nemisz -disapointment
09- Tim Erixon - Traded
11- Sven Bartschi - The saving grace, future star
12- Mark Jankowski- Time will tell. Usually these reach picks fizzle as Kings fans know.

What a train wreck in cowtown. I love Sutter, but man I hope the Kings told him to play a round of golf or go to Disneyland on draft day
