Looks like Hartnell-Schenn-Read, considering Couturier practiced with Talbot and Nodl today.

What? I thought both were basically retired or playing in the AHL at this point... I knew Bagnall was signed by Minny before last season but how is he just getting waived now?

I really miss Wayne Simmonds and it kinda sucks we didn't use him like the Flyers are.

The Kings are missing that grit in our top 9....Moreau is just on a one year deal, Penner is a soon to be UFA...Pretty much leaves Brown as the only sand paper in our top 9.

Maybe the Kings go searching in the draft next year for his replacement....Clifford has yet to show that skill and two way play and Andreoff, even as an overager got sent down to juniors. Simmonds made the Kings at 19.

I went to a flyers messageboard to see how they felt about it and there are a lot of people angry that Rinaldo is being sent down. Rinaldo... in favor of Schenn...

These are the same people who believed that Mike Richards was a lazy, partying peice of trash, though, so I guess I should be used to it.

The Kings were a different team when Simmonds and Moller made the team at a young age.

Clearly your impression of Mike Richards differs from the norm.

They're not pissed about Rinaldo over Schenn, they're upset about Shelley over Rinaldo.

Simmer was 3RW because we have JW & DB in front of him and rightly so. I don't recall too many people here complaining about Simmer's lack of time on pp, so, let's not be the monday morning QB and blame TM for something most of us didn't consider ourselves.

Personally, I've already gone on record saying Simmer can be a 40 goals scorer if he can bulk up and continue to improve so, that should tell you how I feel about Simmer.

For some reason Flyer's fans hate on Shelley, probably because of his contract.

You can end your sentence with the word hate. Part of being a Philly fan is you hate everything. The only time they cheer is when Michael Irvin breaks his neck on the field.

Agree. With the forwards the Kings have on the roster, there is no way Simmonds would see the PP time in LA that he is getting in Philadelphia. I am happy for Simmonds that he is getting a chance to expand his role with another team.

BTW, Moreau has been a pleasant surprise thus far.

Kessel is just playing at another level right now.

The guy has a top 10 skillset, it has always just been a matter of motivation with him. He is not the easiest guy to deal with, but you can't deny the skill.
