Ok immediately after the Demitra deal I was calling for DL's job. But after his signing of Blake, I've reconsidered my position. I think dumping Demitra's contract to get Blake was a good deal. For those who still think we were ripped off in the Demitra deal, think of it this way essentially we traded Pavol Demitra for Rob Blake, Patrick O'Sullivan and a draft pick. I say we got the best out of that deal.
Does signing Blake suddenly change the future for LA though? Basically, I think we filled the hole we needed to fill and this rebuilding DL has claimed we are doing may be better than most teams' rebuilding. I figure with Blake on the blueline, we may do better than last season and actually make the playoffs.
