I'm glad the Kings are my 2nd favourite team. If only the Sens...

For a 65pt player we give up the number one prospect in all of hockey and a guy who could be a rock on our 3rd line forever. O yea and a 2nd round pick!!!

Stupid/terrible trade. Stupid beyond belief.

What's worse is we're stuck with him for a decade. Amazingly stupid.

And what really is annoying is that you know the Flyers knew they had made two stupid signings with both Richards and Carter. So we're the morons that bailed them out.

Congrats to LA on making sure they reach at least the WCF. Now get rid of Penner and I hope we meet in the finals next year.

I will always be a fan of Richards, and I hope he lights it up for you guys. Except when you play us obviously.

im just speechless, this is so huge for us. we got the player who we hopes Schenn would peak at, at only the expense of a 3rd liner (who was expendable due to Clifford emergence) and a 2nd round pick

DL you beauty

LA balked at given up Schenn for Hesmky last March, but coulnd't resist for Richards, the center they've been craving for years

I just can't understand how people could be excited about this!

62pts followed by 66pts. That's his last two years. You're trying to tell me it's a good thing to give up the top prospect in all of hockey, a damn good 3rd liner, and a 2nd round pick for a 65pt player.

What's worse is that he's a guy who should be a poster boy for why you don't sign people to gigantic long-term contracts. What happens! One amazing year then boom. High of 80's now he's nearly 25% lower in the 60's after he got his money...

Boy... that's just a great idea... trade stupid amounts for a guy who doesn't care as much.

Best thing about this trade, no more silly trade proposals from Leafs fans. As for the trade itself, how can Kings fans not like this one? They just landed a center that can be comparable to Toews and Kesler, who is also signed long-term at a very manageable cap hit, and now gives the Kings two legitimate scoring lines.

Mike Richards is a center that can do it all, he can check, he can pass, he can score, he can also fight. He's been compared to a young Bobby Clarke, and I don't think the Kings have ever had a player like Mike Richards, maybe not since Adam Deadmarsh.

To be honest, I almost had a heart attack, thought Bernier would be heading to Philly. But Wow. We finally get that 1B Centre, I think Richards and Kopi can be interchangeable on the first line.


I'm not sure about trading away Schenn, but Richards is only 26 and already a 30 goal scorer in 2 seasons. Looking forward to hearing Dean's thought process on this trade. Looks like we're making a run for the cup.

Perhaps the locker room drama rumors about Philly were true, not sure why they are doing a roster blowup.

Now dump Smyth's contract and see DL can take advantage of another team that wants to shake things up.

We're not dumping Smyth until we for sure have a replacement in place for him.

You are nuts man. Richards is what we hope Schenn will become. You can't sit around waiting forever for your flowers to grow. Sometimes you got to go to the florist and supplant the bouquet. How is that for a horrible metaphor?

Ok Simmonds is suppose to be on the fan cruise this year. I think he is the reason Doughty agreed to go. When Stuart got traded he still went.

As far as the deal I just hope we are not looking at these two guys 3 years from now wishing we still had them

He's signed till 2021!

Who would be crazy enough to sign a physical player for a decade! Dudes a horrific injury waiting to happen and we get to pay for it forever.

I hope to god this works....

I hope we trade Smyth and get another bruiser on the 2nd line, purely so we can just have a pure body wrecking second line

Doughty's probably shedding a few tears of bacon fat now that Simmers been traded. Sucks to see Simmonds go but I think this could potentially benefit Drew focus wise. Plus Clifford make him expendable.
