It's a problem, but this is the official Kings rumor thread and since the only way we can get a top 6 is by making a trade, we might as well talk and speculate about the remaining spot that needs to be addressed through UFA.

Tough pill to swallow knowing to start the season we won't have a tough guy in either the AHL or NHL club.
Westgarth will be ready - the hand is healed

When he DOES start the season on time, can you put a chalk mark on the CBGB was right side of the blackboard?

Great news. Now we just need someone for Manchester to protect the boys. Maybe this camp invite Dylan King kid gets a AHL contract. Nolan will be in the mix too.

Sorry, we used up all the chalk marking the other side.

You personally being right or not in the past to me is irrelevant. As long as you continue to associate yourself with a website lead by a guy who is such a joke and farce, it makes your credibility look bad. (Mostly at the fault of just one man.)

Take my opinion for what it is worth, but if you start your own "KingsSources/Rumors etc." I think reporting and passing credible information to us will be "defending" itself.

It's either a trade for a top 6 for the Kings or we start the season as is, so I started talking about one concern...lack of an enforcer...which is true, Westgarth will not be ready for camp and Manchester has no one.

I have a feeling that we sign Comrie or someone of the like as a stop-gap rather than trade or go into it as is.

I'd rather go with Moller or move Stoll to LW with Schenn as the #2 center, but Comrie wouldn't be a bad stop gap either. He can play center or LW.

Nobody is better at writing sentences that mean absolutely nothing. I have to believe Ecklund has read a book on how to be vague in every sentence he writes-or maybe he hasn't? It's really too tough to tell right now, more to come tomorrow.

My sentiments exactly, except for maybe the Schenn part. Need to see how he does in camp. If he impresses, then a stint with the Kings maybe in order or even more...

Meanwhile, 150,000 people will refresh HockeyBuzz and put 750 bucks in his pocket. The man knows how to work his audience and they keep coming back.

Hate him all you want but he is the TMZ of the hockey world.

Wish I would have thought of it

This is my thought, only the other way around....Schenn breaks in as a winger, that way he gets the second line mins but doesn't have to deal with all the responsibility of a center his first season. Then throughout the year, through injuries he gets a few games at center, so he eases into the position.

That could work too, but I'd rather he take the same development path as Mike Richards.

I don't mind CBGB and his reports, until he goes on to write things that sounds definite or write things about players like Simmonds that are not true (like the Kings shopping him).

I am going to throw this out there. I thought of it when the Hawks walked away from Niemi.

I can see the Kings signing Niemi and dealing Quick + to the Flyers for Carter. I know PH said Carter's not available but he's making 5 million this year and is a RFA next summer. If he puts up another 40+ goal year, he'll be looking at a pretty nice raise.

You'd have to figure if the Kings got him they would look to sign him long term with a reasonalble cap hit of 6-7 million.

With a Kopitar/Carter duo up the middle the Kings wingers will become much better than they are now

I enjoy all of CGBG blogs for Hockybuzz. They have some great humor in them and just because he hears rumors from sources doesn't mean the Kings are entertaining them. He's a nice change from boring bloggers

There's no doubt in my mind that DL called about Penner (big forward that can play a top 6 role) and of course Tams asked for JJ. Why wouldn't he? That doesn't mean DL said "sure, done deal"

Kaunisto? He has to size to do the job, a solid base as far as skills go, could see him being treated and trained as the new "Big bodied guy out of college" ala Parros and Westie.

And until you realize anything different, the majority will continue to discredit you and call you out.

Good luck, guy.

Discredit him all you want. You're probably making 45 grand doing a job you hate while he's making more doing a job he loves.

If Stoll moves to wing I would make an offer for Savard. Yea, his contract is long but it's got one of those happy endings the league is trying to get rid of. Pretty easy to get around those last few years.
