"Congrats on the trade" Marty McSorely. Really Marty, that's how you open up an interview?

Amazing how quickly things can change. A few years ago no one in their right mind would have thought Carter and Richards would be playing for LA in 11-12.

Ive been one of Lombardis biggest supporters but I hate this move and if he trades Brown for anything short of a star winger or stud defenseman, I will stop watching until hes replaced

You can bet Carter will play so hard that he never has to be traded from his best buddy again. I can't believe the player I've been pining for ever since I heard the words "is not happy about being traded to Columbus" is a King.

I don't think effort is going to be an issue. The guy's a better point totaler than anyone else on the team.

Or even 9 months ago! I saw on twitter, it was 8 months ago to the day that Carter and Richards were traded. Now back together. SO weird.

Empty threat. You're like all of us, you'll watch even if they were in last place. That's how sports fans are.

Why? Voynov has the skill to be just as good or better than Johnson and we needed goal scoring incredibly bad. To top it off we get a player signed to a great deal who is thrilled to come here to play with his buddy who is also signed here long term on a great contract.

Brown isnt that great either, he dives (or falls? alot... A LOT). Hes a terrible on ice captain, he rarely sticks up for anyone, he doesnt get the team going etc.. I don't care if hes good with kids and visits hospitals, he has no killer instinct on the ice and he does not have the ability to put the team on his back and get this team going (physically on the ice or emotionally). For whatever reason, a lot of other teams' fans think he is really something special. He used to be a good hitter, and he puts up points here and there but hes not special.

Carter adds to offense but going into the last 20 games of the year and the playoffs (maybe) with Voynov/Drewiski/Martinez as your #5/#6 defensemen is pretty scary. In the playoffs they will get eaten alive.

Well, nobody can say Dean doesn't pull the triggers on deals.


Also can't say he isn't doing what he can to help the offense.

We have Voynov/Hickey/Deslauriers all chomping at the bits in the minors. Trade from a position of strength to gain in a position of weakness. Hockey trade 101. I like it.

"Jeff gives you the flexibility to fill-in in the middle if you have some injuries."

- Dean Lombardi

Guess we know he will be playing wing.

Yea, not sold on our D if we get to the playoffs. Suter would be awesome but doubtful they trade him.

Craig Button is an idiot.


He said in his analysis....he thinks that part of the problem with the L.A. Kings has been that they don't have 3-4 solid defensemen in the lineup.


Uh hello dumb**** we have the 3rd or 4th highest scoring set of defensemen in the league..and are top 5 in goals against.

Have you seen that our offense is 30th by the way?


What a ****ing moron.

I really hope that they can figure out a way to pull it together - because if they don't, the Kings are likely to be mired in mediocrity for a very long time. The prime draft picks for about a 5 year period are all gone or the picks are already traded away. As we have all experienced, it takes a tremendous amount of time to build up that pipeline so that it can feed quality players into your system. The fans made the sacrifice - they dutifully attended the games when it seemed like the team was intentionally sucking for a better draft pick.

Being older has its disadvantages. I've seen this scenario play out time and again - new management comes in talking about building the team "the right way". Younger fans who haven't experienced that philosophy before embrace the mantra and slam anyone who questions the guru. The guru puts out a crap team now, but "the future is bright" for those who have "patience". This goes on until the guru turns out to be just another late-night huckster who really doesn't know any better than anyone else. As his house of cards starts to collapse, he starts giving away small pieces of the future that he has accumulated at the expense of the "ticket-buying no matter what the team looked like" fans to try to bolster the lack of performance. When those moves don't work, he starts gambling larger and larger pieces of that hard-earned future - but nothing works.

One day, the fans look up and take off the purple glasses and in unison murmur "Where did the future go? Where are all of those options we were suppose to have?" Congratulations - the options are all gone. The team you see is the team you are going to have for a long time. There are few, if any, impact players in the system and at the moment they are essentially maxed out to the salary cap. Sure, they can dump a few underperforming UFAs at the end of the season - but who do they pick up to replace them?

Is this the team to challenge for the Cup that you imagined after experiencing the glow from the golden tongue of the Smartest Man in the Room 6 years ago? This scenario plays out over and over again. Remember this lesson when the next new GM comes to town promising Cups and banners and parades. It takes more than words to make those events actually happen.
I generally agree with both yours and Herby's sentiments, but I think we should let Jeff Carter step on the ice before we crucify this trade. It does, though, scare me, that for better or for worse, this is essentially the core of the team for the next 5+ years, so we have just hope and pray that Carter is part of the answer instead of further questions. But I'm going to give it a few games before I feel one way or the other, because like everyone else, I'm very conflicted on this team and its direction.

Trades happen in pro sports. It sucks, especially when you lose loyal, fan-favorite personalities. But we move on.
