Missing Cammalleri

Mike is showing he IS a clutch performer in the playoff.
Yesterday he had another great game, with 2 beautiful goals.
So far he has 11 goals and 16 points in 13 games.

I hated seeing him traded...and now that trade looks even worst, with Teubert still far from being even an AHLer.

We never should have traded Larry Murphy, Paul Coffee, and/or the pick that led to Boston drafting Ray Bourque!!!

I love what Dean's doing, but everyone lays an egg sometimes.

Btw, your post clearly shows a huge intelligence.
I'm impressed.

Yeah it is becoming pretty clear that he blew that one. Michael is everything people want in Kovalchuk. Sure Kovalchuk is a better player but Michael was homegrown and would likely have cost less.

It's no big deal for me, but someone made a mistake about him.

No mistake has been made until the draft pick busts or pans out. For all we know, Teubert turns into Adam Foote, then the mistake would undoubtedly be yours for being impatient. Not to mention we may end up with someone infinitely better than Cammy in a month and a half for the grand total of free under a similar debilitating cap hit. *Braces for Legionnaire Cammy versus Kovy rebuttal*

Wounds are so much easier to deal with when they aren't continually fed a healthy supply of salt.

Have you checked what Cammalleri is doing? A Foote-like player is very useful, but no way has the same value of a pure sniper like Cammy in his prime.

Cammy was never going to re-sign in LA anyway.

He had 1 year left on his deal, even if we hadn't traded him he probably still wouldn't be a King right now and everyone would be whining about how we let Cammy walk without getting anything back.

Everyone here was certain he would leave when his contract expired to play in a large Canadian market.

Of course, but that makes it an overpayment, not a mistake. So he didn't maximize the asset, doesn't make it some debilitating mistake. We have a 5th overall, a 2nd overall, and a 3rd overall puck moving defenseman on the depth chart, not to mention a couple of other promising puck movers slightly lower. The last thing this organization needed was a puck moving defenseman... So Dean drafted on need.

Cammy wasn't going to remain with the Kings, at least not for a price that suited us at the time. For all we know, we got something for nothing, I doubt having Cammy would have brought us to the playoffs that year either way, and we were competitive until the final month of the season, so Dean would have likely held onto him.

It would have been nice if he had traded him sooner, but it was obvious that Dean wanted to try and keep him, but Cammy wanted to go back to Canada, so he did, and we moved up in the draft because of it. Such is hockey. We still have a decent prospect out of it who is still in the middle of his development. We overpayed, but he is our primary stay-at-home prospect in the organization behind the likes of Scuderi, Greene, and O'Donnell.

I am probably the biggest supporter of Teubert but Cammy is everything this team is missing right now. The way he was handled is the biggest reason why I'm not sold on DL yet.

so you would have been sold on him if he had let Cammy walk at the end of his contract and got nothing for him?

The same discussion is going on over at the other site:
(thx to nayagamj for digging up the qoutes.)

LOMBARDI: ``It doesn't surprise me that he's scoring up there. We had to make a conscious decision, based on the type of culture we wanted here, the type of player I wanted to use to set the identity of this franchise and, thirdly, signability. We answered those questions. Am I surprised that he's on a 40-goal pace, up there in his contract year with Iginla? We all know the kid can score goals.

``I wasn't trading a 20-goal scorer. I was a little surprised I didn't get a little more action on him, but I think the reason was that he's a one-year asset, to any team we were talking to. They didn't want to inherit the same problem I was having. Now Calgary's got that issue right now. It's like a double-edged sword. I don't think it's any secret where he really wants to go, so what do I want that problem for?''

"To be able to play in a place like Calgary and Canada where people bleed hockey, the passion is so high every game, that was something I never had and it was just such a great experience."

Cammalleri also has family in Montreal, he was going to leave as soon as he could. The real debate would be whether or not Tyler Myers was a better pick...

He was intent on going to free agency. Calgary found that out as well. The End.
