If the Kings were to sign Shanahan, they would have parts of two effective lines from the last WCs: O'Sullivan-Brown and Shanahan-Cammalleri. I kind of doubt that Shanahan would sign with L.A. because of Cammalleri, after only two weeks together, but Roenick was really taken with the kid, so I suppose it wouldn't be unrealistic for Shanahan to take a liking to him, as well. Shanahan would be good for Cammalleri and O'Sullivan, among others, IMO.

For those who care, ***********.com says that "LA apparently is very interested in [Chara]" and the Kings are also among those "interested [in Leetch] if they can get him at the right price." We'll see...

Good post. I agree with you that Shanny would be good for Cammalleri.

I'm not holding my breath. With Demitra gone,Lubo needs SOMEONE on the team he can speak with as his english is pretty bad. A Czech pickup wouldn't be bad either aka Elias.. I know, dream on, LA won't pay the max to land Elias.

I really don't like the way our top line looks like right about now. Granted tomorrow is the day that can change..

But Conroy is not a #1 center. If I had it my way I would have him traded, or at least demoted.

It would be huge to get Chara. Visnovsky-Chara would be absolutely incredible for us. And if we could get Leetch at the same time that would be even better.

Because our defense right now is SHAKY. But if we had:

Visnovsky-Chara
Leetch-Gleason
Norstrom-Miller

That would be one of the better defense crews in the league.

if he doesn't sign with us, maybe we should try to sign him on the side as visnovsky's english teacher

FYI, the L.A. Times had this to say this morning:
Quote:
New General Manager Dean Lombardi said he would be prudent this summer. "Let's just say if we find the right guy, we have room available under the cap," he said. "But we're not going to spend it just to spend it."

Hello Owen Nolan, Scott Thornton, and Hal Gill or Kim Johnsson all under $2 million at the least.

He may be posturing, since with RFA's signed we are 14 million below the cap.

Actually, I think that it's pretty clear that he's hinting towards pursuing one high-priced guy, rather than solely a bunch of cheap guys (at least to begin with).

I'm envisioning a very solid D also...but I think Leetch will be replaced by someone who's a little meaner and younger.

Brian Leetch isn't going anywhere. He wants to retire in Boston. He told Mike O'Connell at the deadline that if he traded him, he would retire.

...

Kings don't need an Elias or a Chara. A more immediate impact would be trading for Dan Cloutier. Since Luongo is there now, the Kings can swoop in and get this guy for cheap. He would be a much bigger upgrade overall than an Elias or Chara would bring.
