Hmm, what makes you say Parse? That's an odd one, especially since he's really done nothing and is now injured for a really long time.

Just what "bad influence" stuff is Simmonds allegedly guilty of?

I never read that far, nor cared to track down the "dirt". Was it legit after all?
For the same reasons some of you think it's Johnson.

I heard from people on the Kings cruise last year that Parse drinks like a fish. That's the reason I said Parse. And I've been hearing that Simmonds is a bit of a party animal for 2 years now.

My guess is that no one is a bad presence in that they are so-called "cancers" or malcontents, but most likely that they offer up too many distractions and aren't as purely focused on the game on the ice, but rather playing the game off it.

But I must be clear, I don't KNOW a damn thing about any of this. For the sake of amusement I'm taking Barry's likely hair-brained ******** and running with it based off things I have heard... connecting dots in my head if you will.

my guess is that said player is someone whose behavior has already been "being watched" for a little while now.
The list of suspects is fairly small, even if I know nothing of what goes on:


I don't think we're talking fourth-liners/bench-warmers/call-ups. Almost certainly not one of the following: Scuderi, Mitchell, Williams, Smyth, Brown, Kopitar, Greene, Doughty, Johnson.

Who's a regular who is left? Handzus (I'd be shocked), Simmonds (hmmm?), Richardson (strikes me as a team-first, ra-ra type), Stoll (I know nothing about the guy), Drewiskie (falls towards the "who cares"? group so probably not him).

My completely uneducated guess is we're talking either Stoll or Simmonds.

Ah, but the Johnson stuff was well-documented by Hammond and others. I never saw any type of official documentation regarding the alleged Simmonds stuff.

Simmonds + for Booth?

Lewis/Richie can take his role.

Kopitar-no
Brown-no
Stoll-no

Handzus-no
Simmonds-maybe Party hard rumors, friends with Doughty, could be bad influence? Only thing I can think of.
Poni-just got on team, doubtful.
Richardson-no
Lewis-no
Westgarth-no
Clifford-no
Scuderi-no
Doughty-seriously doubt
Mitchell-no
Greene-no
Johnson-maybe Doesn't seem to like it here. Bad attitude it seems at times. DL/Johnson Michigan incident. Inconsistent(who isn't?) Seems most likely.
Drewiske-no
Parse-hasn't played enough or been around the team long enough to be that big of a factor i'd think.
Harrold-no
Quick-no
Bernier-no

Well, judging from Johnson's response to the entire ordeal, it is apparent that the guy is an utmost professional. He simply stated that he disagreed with Lombardi's assertions about Red Berenson and Michigan hockey.

I find it bothersome that so many people find reasons to pick at Jack Johnson. What happened to all those rumors that spread of him demanding $5M and bolting for Russia? Then seeing him sign for less than $2M per year...

I don't buy anything that guy rights if it goes beyond injury reports (and even those have to be taken with a grain of salt).

Maybe Johnson or Simmonds don't want to sign a new contract.

surprised no one has mentioned Bernier, based on his history. If you guys are gonna throw out crap like Johnson and Simmonds being bad influences, why not the guy who has had a history of complaining?

Going along with PURELY SPECULATION ... IF ... it is Simmonds being 'a party animal' then it could sort of theoretically add up and make sense. That could lead some to consider him a negative influence on Drew Doughty. Sharing an appartment etc. And I am pretty sure the Kings brass consider Drew Doughty more important for the present and future than Wayne Simmonds. Maybe they'd want to separate the important DD from the 'bad influence'.

But, then again, that is less likely than Matthew Barry being full of *****.

If he's purporting to break news on an injury or a player re-signing, then I'll pay attention to Matt because he's right far more than the average rumor mongerer. On the other hand, if he's making trade rumors, I ignore him because his track record shows he's bascially never right. What is clear is he craves attention and some of you are all too eager to give it to him.

It's a small price to pay for entertainment. Beats cash.

If you think Simmonds parties any more than the rest of the team except for the old married guys (Smyth, Zeus, Scuderi etc), you're sadly mistaken

I don't think anything because I don't know anything. I only know what I've heard passed along to me, which I haven't been cryptic about nor claimed to believe.
