There are still a few options out there such as LeClaire(risky,i know) Amonte and Carter who would improve any team.

I am very dissapointed that Palffy didn't re-sign. But I think in the end it will be a good thing for the Kings.

Amonte signed with the Flames and Carter, well, he just sucks.

I think we should give Val Bure a chance, provided that he's less than 3 million a season....

Maybe also give Richard Park a shot?

...

There's a thread on LGK from a guy who says he knows Ziggy. He seems to blame Ziggy's agent for not divulging information to Ziggy from the Kings standpoint. He said Ziggy really wanted to come back to LA but his agent made it seem like Kings management was screwing with him. Whether it's true or not, i doubt anyone will ever know.

Moving on i guess...

First off.. Ziggy's agent IS a head case. There was a scathing article written about him back when Ziggy turned down the long term pre-lockout deal the Kings offered. (Which BTW, if he was willing to durn down THAT deal, he sure has hell wasn't going to sign a less lucrative deal now - but I know common sense flies out the window around here at times.)

In order for Ziggy to be a "big loss", we had to have him to begin with. We haven't had Ziggy under contract, so there is no "big loss". Just not a "big win". Sure, his scoring would have been appreciated, but the Kings need another RW as badly as they need another injury plagued season right now.

The hole is at LW - and that's what I have no doubts DT is focusing on filling. I think DT would have signed Ziggy if he could have had him for a year or two. He's too much risk to sign to a longer term contract.

Longer term being "3"? As opposed to what "2"!

C'mon bro, this is part of the disease that I can't take with management. If he sucks come year three, move him. That's it just move him. It's not rocket science, and since when has any player seen out most of his contract these days. Ziggy's gone, yes. But I just see the same BS constantly being spewed out by us. We justify everything this team does. I'm just tired of doing that. Sooner or later you have to say, why are the same teams that win every year, continue to win. They're constantly wheeling and dealing, in all facets. From the draft to trades to building their own.....whatever it takes. We criticize it, but I envy it! I just wish this big "market" would grab their balls already. Make a statement.

As for the LW comment. Dustin Brown isn't a true left wing, either was Deadmarsh. Brown played his whole year there. Cammy, Brown, Frolov, Demitra, Roenick, Army, Conroy. Those guys can play anyone of the forward positions, and still do damage.

I think its pretty obvious Palffy really didn't want to be here so, whatever I'm pissed but whatever, goodbye.

Hopefully we can get a very good top 6 forward and then get a 3rd or 4th d-man. I think DT will do his thing via trade.

Gee, I guess that it also wouldn't be rocket science to assume that a player looking for a retirement contract, such as Ziggy was looking at, would also ask for a no-trade clause?

Perhaps it would have been interesting to see the howling of Kings fans when the Kings had to include a draft choice to dump Ziggy to a team of his choice for the ubiquitous, future considerations (which, contrary to Hacksaw) usually means forget about sending anything back ...

Best of lucky, Ziggy. We'll miss you in L.A. - and the only good thing about you leaving is that I don't have to see that kid holding up the "Getting Ziggy Wit It" sign anymore. Oh - and that the long Jozef Stumpel-era in Los Angeles is over.

Normally I'm quite spiteful and angry at Kings management, especially for their (continuing) trend of lowballing popular players in the name of "fiscal responsibility". Their "Plan A" was to sign Ziggy - and that didn't turn out. But let's wait to see what "Plan B" is.

I have a feeling "Plan B" is to go to war with the army you have - not the one you want to have. But "Plan B" could mean a good UFA forward. "Plan B" could be to save the money and go after someone even better and snazzier later. "Plan B" could mean a trade for an RFA.

I just hope that "Plan B" isn't to panic and trade away bunches of the best Kings prospects. Which, ironically, is kinda how we GOT Ziggy in the first place.

Its not bad that Ziggy left us.
He will be injured over half of the Season like Allison in Toronto will be.
Important is, that the GM `not trade cam or brown for old, sick last Yesterday Sars.

They should try to get Datsyuk from the red`s and close the Mrket for them self.
After that the Kings are an Play Off Member.

Really, you have a link, for a no trade clause in his contract. I get to see everybody's contract before they sign. He was looking for longevity, and he deserves it. You'll still be that guy justifying his 90+ points for the next three seasons. He still has a good five years left.

If he stays healthy, he better put up 90 points on the power play on that team.
