And how'd that work out for them ? YEAH I get what you're saying, BUT ... Weaver is NO replacement for Matt Greene, or what Greener brings to this Kings Team, including in the locker room and off the ice.

And I liked guys like Weaver and Harrold ... but come on, it's a case of not appreciating what you have until it's gone, sure Greene takes the occasional poor caveman penalty, but HE's the guy Darryl Sutter WON a STANLEY CUP with putting on the Ice against every other teams top Power Plays and that includes Kovalchuk too I might add.

Now you MIGHT argue though that we ALREADY got our GREENE type replacement though when we acquired Keaton Ellerby ? That would be a more comparable comparison IMO.
