Here's a "Lombardi" type player if I've ever seen one:
A better skating version of Ryane Clowe with softer hands. Kings need a LW in the top six and a player who can make room for Kopitar. It makes sense for the Kings to pursue a player like Malone, however, it is tough to gauge what Tampa Bay would want in return or even why they would have interest in moving him.
He isn't a prolific scorer, but he's got the type of player like Rick Tocchet who is not flashy at all but gets the job done.
Tampa Bay may be trying to clear some cap space for future extensions for Simon Gagne, Stamkos will be due for a new contract next summer.
Semin? Washington has been rumored to be making a trade after they sign Belanger. I doubt it's him, but ya never know.
Supposedly they are set to acquire a defenseman and the rumored forward involved in the trade will be Fleischmann. I doubt it is the Kings as they have no defenseman to spare, unless the Caps are willing to take on a prospect or a spare part, which I highly doubt is the case.
I would love Semin if we had a pre arranged extension in place. He would cost but I would be willing. I would think that some type of contract would have to go back ie) Williams? as well as a top prospect
I went back to double check and now hes changed it to brad richards and marc savard that they inquired about It was on his twitter. I read this last night and it said mike richards . I'm not that familar with twitter can someone go back and change stuff ??
