That how I see it too.He had something about Stamkos for Doughty...ya sure.
"It wont happen. It's not even a rumor I have heard, but it is interesting speculation." That sentence sums up his website.

The Doughty for Stamkos "trade" is clearly just to get get people talking and coming to the site. The trade makes no sense from the Kings point of view.

As for the Doughty stuff... Lombardi and Doughty's agent just a few hours confirmed that there isn't much going on right now and that it could take a while. Now the Yandle deal could have changed that to an extent but I find it hard to believe that they'd suddenly come to terms on the very same day that they said it might take a while.

Pretty much what I believe too. Speculation is fun but sometimes people take it too far. Be nice to get some closure on that Doughty contract though haha.

The caphit thing is tricky now with the signing bonus, etc...

But realistically, drew would leave millions on the table if he were to do a retirement contract now.

And then people would still whine and moan about something.

To say he deserves 5 mill is almost a slap in the face considering the change in he market this season. I'm surprised yandle took a discount looking at he wiz contract..

He took a "discount" to stay in PHOENIX. To me, that says a lot.

OK.
Make it HICKEY and definitely not Voynov, and I'm fine with that.

Lol if they want Hemsky for Hickey and a pick or prospect, call it a deal. No go on Voynov though.

How credible is Barry? Not trying to troll just wondering.

He's meh. He's really good when it comes to transactions with Manchester but I don't believe anything he says about trades or free agents really.

When it comes to injuries, he is a great source. Signings and trades, not so much.

Pretty decent on injuries and small roster moves but pretty bad on free agents and trades.

That's what I thought too. He has been saying Hickey is going to be on the move all off season.

Yeah he works on Eklunds site and my opinion is that Hockeybuzz just slings poo on the wall and sees what sticks. While yeah Barry is good at injuries and transactions with Manch, he's not what I'd call reliable on trades at all.

Probably because its a safe bet we move either him, Voynov, or one of our other plethora of D prospects.

Hickey for Hemsky would be great. We could afford to lose the D prospect. Although I don't think the Oilers would do it.

Voynov is an instant no-no.

Hockeybuzz slung something real good at the wall with the Richards deal. Somehow that was called first by Eklund so make of that what you will. And tbh I agree with many of the comments so far, but it does stand to reason that at some point by the trade deadline Hickey will be part of a move. Doesn't take a genius to figure that out.

Honestly, as much as everyone calls for Hickey to be traded, I really don't see him being traded. Lombardi made a big move picking him 4th and that looks bad on his resume if you trade away a guy you took 4th overall before he plays a single NHL game. I'd love to see Hickey traded for someone ready now, but I HIGHLY doubt it happens.

Well, he did trade the 5th overall pick after 9 games.... Can't see how Hickey would be off limits...

I'm convinced that Barry's only source is someone on the kings training staff.

Because that addressed a major hole right now and was a move of trading potential for someone who's already established. We don't have any real holes anymore. And Schenn played at the NHL and didn't stick. Hickey hasn't played at all and has been hurt a ton. Hickey won't go anywhere methinks.
