He says Demitra has never made any team better. What a joke. He's only been on one team, and he's a great player. That being said, I hope DT isn't done. Still needs to re-sign RFAs and hopefully add another piece.

The thread on the HF free agent/trade rumors page has Demitra listed in at least half of the posts as one of the best pick ups as of late this afternoon. We might not have done well in other years but we've picked up Luc, a fan fav and future hall of famer, signed a goalie who is ready to break out, in a position we needed help, and pegged a perennial producer Demitra in the first four days. We are trying to be 20% under the league mandated cap and have not sold the farm to do it. If Roenick came to us for virtually nothing, as has been rumored, out of the blue, and if we break our self imposed cap by a million or 2, I can't see management wincing over his acquisition.

I remember reading a list somewhere (it might have been on TSN) that had Demitra listed as one of the top 20 UFA's available this summer. Go figure.

Let's see, we're what, almost 4-days into it and he's bagging on the Kings and praising his former TSN colleague who just put the Ducks in CAP mate. I'm shocked...

Yeah, the ducks sign one guy at 6+ mil a year and they're big winners. Neidermeyer is good, but he's not the second coming of bobby orr.

This guy's a ******...

He argues that the Kings lost because they spend 9 mil on Free agents. ha, but the Ducks spent almost all that alone on one guy, Nieds. And the Kings got Demitra who is only 30 to a 3 year deal and Roenick only has one more left. I don't think money is justifiable as making the Kings losers.

Well, then his math obviously sucks, cause the only UFA's the Kings have signed are Demitra and Labarbara (sp?). No, I'm not including Flinn and Kostolopoloustical (yes I know that's wrong), cause they were Kings property before. He's obviously listing J.R. in with them as well, but sorry J.R. is not a UFA signing.

Yea that guy doesn't like JR much. As a Flyers fan I loved having him on my team. Just look at the hit he took in game 7 of the leafs series and got up and scored the game winner.

i dont get how u guys don't see what this guy is talking about. i am loving roenick and i comlpetely agree w/ the acquisition, but he IS taking $5 mil of our cap space. so fact of the matter is, we are overpaying roenick. not to mention as of right now, we're still no better then what we were our last year of hockey, which wasn't all that great on paper to begin with. it seems that all we did was barely replace the pieces we lost. in which i don't think we even did completely (which is why he puts us in the losers so far). if we get ziggy, THEN maybe we might be better, but again, we still don't have a proven goalie to backstop our net and our defense is still a bit suspect.

Trust me, I read the Toronto papers, I watch TSN and see him as a guest.

This is Simmons being Simmons, a complete hack of a writer, with no credible sources in my oppinion, he is a joke, worse then Strachan.

Everytime Simmons opens his mouth, EVERY DAMN TIME! he has to say negitive things about SOMETHING.

He makes his money by being negitive in his columns that's it.

You want more proof how out of touch he is with reality? look back to the 03/04 season, he wrote that the Leafs stoped listening to Quinn, that he lost the team.

that was right before they went on a dozen game long winning streak.

and not once, not even once during that winning streak did he write a hockey related article, he was covering the Raptors, the joke on the Leaf board was that If we lost a game he'd probably send a thank you card to whoever beat us because it ment he could stop covering basketball.

LA has done a fine job, Roenick has a price tag on him for sure, but with that cap room avilable picking up JR doesn't curb the Kings, plus a 3rd rounder too, all for FC.

You've added 2 top line players, how that makes you "losers" is beyond me.

simmins is an idiot, if you have seen him before you already know this, just the fact that he didn't even have washington on his loser list shows this is a joke and should not be taken seriously

"Subtraction by Addition"? Simmons is just talking out his a$$. Such a comment is utterly absurd.

Roenick is a point-a-game player for his entire career.

Demitra is a point-a-game player for the last seven seasons combined.

That's 2 point-a-game players added in slightly over 24 hours.

After two straight seasons in which the Kings cobbled together these quasi-AHL lineups to recover from having half the damn team injured.

How the ******* is that "Subtraction by Addition"?
