Kings are out of the Satan bidding and going for Palffy. DT says they're at about $26 mil. LaBarbara will cost them $700k this year and $800k next year.

Oh well, no Satan, but pass on Palffy if he wants too many years. Go for Kariya and Palffy.

very bad rumor...yeah, i'll believe it when i see it.

so according to this article, its one more forward and maybe a defenseman...still hoping for rafalski...if not, then schneider would have to do for the amount that they have to work with...very disappointing that the kings can only work in the low $30M range.

I'm pissed we dropped out on the Satan have wanted him for years dont get me wrong but Demitra is worth 4.5 million and Satan isn't worth 4 million? Satan has put up almost the same numbers with NO talent around him and better overal // Oh well - dont think we getting Kariya so this leaves us to Palffy who i dont see coming here unless now that we have demitra but still i dont want to pay 5.5 million for 4 years to him f that and which d man we going to sign if he sign him for 5.5 mill that leaves us with like 2 mill no good PP point d-man will sign for that.....

Dude, seriously, punctuation and captialization are your friends.

Back on topic...

First of all, Satan has put up nowhere NEAR the same numbers as Demitra:

Satan
704gp 259g 261a 520p
0.74ppg

Demitra
553gp 216g 303a 519p
0.94ppg

Demitra is a clear 1st line player, Satan is a very good 2nd line player, average 1st liner. Not saying that I wouldn't want Satan on the team, I just think he's worth about $3.5m, max. And if we can get Palffy at $5.5m, I'd sign him in a heartbeat.

Also, I'll bet you that Mathieu Schneider will sign for $2.5m (+/-.5m), which is clearly in the Kings budget.

Satan has also been on some really bad offensive teams, his number may rise on a better team and the new rules clearly favor European skilled players.

I'll give you the "bad offensive teams" bit, but the new rules favor Demitra just as much as they do Satan. IMHO, Demitra is clearly the much better player.

Midnight? Wuss...its currently 4:30 and I am goign strong.


Finally I have found a positive about my bizarre sleeping patterns. The server is less congested in these odd hours. Easier to read the boards.
