Seriously. What a ****ing joke.

I want to boo everyone involved.

Injury-prone Gagner for a year? Rad. LW will be sick when both he and Smyth are injured. Unbelievable.

The guy wanted to play here. Can't risk having to "give away" a 3rd liner in the future.

Dean didn't want to give up the cap space, no use in crying about it. Kings have to move forward and still plug some holes.

It's pretty obvious that this was ultimately Kovalchuk's decision.

Of course the "intelligent Kings' fans" will accuse Dean of being a bad GM because of what happened.

Guys - he went to the Devils, a team with an aging defense corps and goaltender, that now has to dump players in order to fit him in. He obviously went for the money.

So I ask, knowing we all wanted the talent, but seeing his decision, did we REALLY want the player?

His motivation seems clear, now. Doesn't want to sign for the future....just wants to sign for the money.

Time to move on.
