I read the first few pages and i gotta say damn some people really don't know a player before running off at the mouth.

just wanted to point out to everyone that there is a reason that Kuli has had a off year. His trainer and one of his closest friends was killed in the KHL crash. Some people react differently and are affected by loss in ways others cannot fathom.

To simply write him off and say that he "isn't a solid nhl caliber player"
"can't forecheck" <---- WTF Seriously? " and will never regain the 30 goal mark again " shows some people's ignorance and desire to simply piss others off by being intentionally argumentative.

Opinions are like a-holes... everyone has one but some stink more then others.....

Lombardi wasn't brought in to be a replacement for anyone. In fact, it was widely expected that he wouldn't even be ready until mid-season due to his concussion. If at all. His contract is uninsured, and Nashville didn't want to be stuck paying for it. They're a small market team, and can't afford $3m+ for a player that isn't actually playing. Cody Franson was the price of taking on that contract. For all intents and purposes, Franson was purchased from the Predators.

I don't think Colborne will be a future #1 center, although I hope I'm wrong. Maybe a good #2? He looks like he'll definitely be a good NHL'er, though. Good head on his shoulders from the sounds of it, too.
Colborne can be a #1 center given time and patience, he has looked very good when called up to play, if I thought he was available, I would love LA to get him, but I doubt he gets traded unless it's in a deal for a tried and true #1.

That was my point about Connolly and Lombardi in regards to Bozak and why TOR is looking for a C, Connolly simply hasn't done enough to prevent Burke from....looking for a C... he wasn't brought in just to be a stop gap, he was expected to play solid minutes AND contribute, he simply isn't doing it.

Hey Kings fans, what's the availability of Mike Richards?

Mac + Kadri + your choice of Aulie/Holzer + 2 1st rounders?

He's playing 3rd line because he hasn't been producing the way they envisioned when they signed him.

But don't let facts get in your way, k?

BTW, Stoll would easily displace Bozak, in fact, there is a reason why Connolly and Lombardi were brought in to Toronto, no one had faith that Bozak could compete as a top line C....which, they still have no faith in that, he's been bounced around more than Pamela Anderson's bra's....but no really...Connolly has been living up to expectations...right?
you must be really disappointed in richards. hes only played 5 more games and has 2 more points. how bout them facts?

Richards wouldn't get that much if he was going to Pittsburgh, Vancouver or New York where they have centre depth out the wazoo.

M. Richards makes us a legitimate playoff team and makes our first line even more dangerous than it already is.

That's roughly double what he went for, and he's currently having a poor season.

Richards would not be swung by MacArthur and Kulemin.
Think about how often someone of MacArthur and Kulemins skillset makes it to free agency.
Now think about how often Richards skillset makes it to free agency and the storm it creates. I think you call the pair dime a dozen players. Thats why they dont snag you players like Richards and Brown. "But Bozak has more points, But MA Bergeron scores points!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!! But pointS MeAn Ur GOOOODer than LeSS pointS LeafsTroll!!!"

Massive overpayment? No...not really..

MacArthur really is nothing special, Kadri has skills but is still unproven, Aulie or Holzer, again, neither would come close to the Kings top 6 let alone top 8 or 9, though I do like Aulie, and 2 1sts...not exactly what the Kings are looking for, or need.

This. Also, taking away one of the only truly performing top-6 would make an already anemic offense even worse.

Kopitar, Brown, Williams, Penner, and Stoll.

Take your pick, but the returns will differ obviously.

To Los Angeles - Grabovski, Kulemin, Kadri & 2nd in 2012
To Toronto - Richards & 1st in 2012

Listen, Richards is a great center but Los Angeles is having a tough time scoring. I know Kulemin isn't exactly lighting it up in the goal department but he brings a strong defensive game. Grabovski is having another great offensive season. One of the major flaws in Los Angeles's offensive game is they are extremely slow and they cannot keep up with the fast speedy teams (Vancouver, Detroit, Chicago) I'm not saying Grabovski is going to make them a clear favourite in the west. However, Grabovski can provide solid scoring depth with Kulemin having the ability to put pucks in the net. L.A. will also be a huge player in the summer when Zach Parise hits the open market. They missed out on Ilya Kovalchuk and the pressure from ownership will be apparent on Lombardi to get the UFA star. Stoll, Penner will probably walk but I feel that L.A. will be better from this trade both right away and in a longer term situation by having a chance at Parise.

Toronto gains a solid 2way center that would help them defensively and can also fill the net in the right situation. Playing along side Kessel and Lupul would provide Toronto with a great 1st line. Richards isn't going to put up offensive numbers that a Getzlaf could but thats okay. Toronto's 2 all-star forwards are putting up great numbers with any center they've been paired with. Bringing Richards into the mix gives the potential for a point per game center that will bring a strong defensive presence to a line that has been questioned for defensive mistakes by their Coach. Toronto would need to fill the hole of Kulemin on the wing. With the defensive depth they have Burke can make that deal happen with ease.

Lupul Richards Kessel
MacArthur Connolly _______
Crabb Bozak Armstrong
Brown Steckel Boyce

Gunnarsson Phaneuf
Liles Franson
Gardiner Schenn
Komisarek

Reimer
Gustavssson

Leafs would also have Aulie in the minors as well to get that missing winger. Preferably with size seems like Malone could be the answer. That team would certainly be a playoff team and could go for a long run with a hot goaltender.
