I bet if you would have done a poll on this board at the time of the trade, the majority would have said Purcell wouldn't even be in the NHL five years down the line.
To me Purcell is just bad luck.
My only problem with the deal was, Purcell was still a young guy.
He wasn't finding his groove with the Kings that is 100% true.
But the Kings threw him in a deal that was for a guy on the verge of retirement.
Lombardi has not had anymore throw in's since....Learned a lesson I think.
I like how Lewis/Clifford are getting plenty of time. The old Kings may have traded those guys by now.
