Lehoux for Tim Jackman

I guess that Manchester gets some size and a guy who can put up a lot of penalty minutes. Too bad for Lehoux, hopefully he'll do better in San Antonio and get another sniff at the NHL

Is this a good trade? It will end up in the fine print section of the trades that's for sure.

Hopefully, this is the last LA installment of the Lehoux experiment...

Actually, let's track his equipment...

Time for the 2005-06 season...

from his home in Quebec to Russia

from Russia to Switzerland

(he gets the word from the Kings...)

from Switzerland to Manchester

(oops, doesn't clear waivers)

from Manchester to Phoenix

(oops, sent to the minors)

from Phoenix to San Antonio

(oops, more waivers)

San Antonio to Manchester

(time for a trade)

Manchester to San Antonio again.

Petiot probably still has him beat on frequent flyer miles.

Don't think many Monarchs fans are upset Lehoux is gone. Many fans named him "Lazy Lehoux" and it was very understandable. Except for last season (up to the time of his injury) his nick name fit him perfectly. Nothing changed for the better when he came back this year either.

So is Jackman crap or what? He was a 2nd rounder. What's his upside?

I'm pretty happy about it.

Big tough kid, not afraid to chuck them, I knew DT would get one for Manchester eventually, just didn't know who it would be.

I'm glad Taylor spent valuable minutes negotiating this deal when Nonis was scooping up all the available defencemen.

Dave "Priorities" Taylor....

Reaper, he traded away arguably the two best playmakers in Mancehster and picked up a career AHLer that couldn't find steady work in the NHL with Phoenix. He could just as easily made a call to Reading for Christiansen, who has played for the Monarchs (last season) and knows the Kings system...

He screwed the pooch dude...

No he used the Monarchs to make the Kings better.

DT doesn't care about the Calder.

Actually, he used the Monarchs to rent a player to replace Frolov so the Kings can compete for the 8th spot in the West and maybe make the playoffs...

I agree with that, which is why he should've dealt Corvo for some guys to help Manchester...

Yup. And then we have something like 5-6 20 goal scorers on our team heading into the playoffs.

I can live with that.

I agree with that as well. Tambellini was the player in Manchester most likely to be able to contribute in a top-6 NHL role soon. I know a lot of folks think the farm has some amazing talent. I live on the farm so I'll let folks in on a little secret, there are NO players here that are even close to the talent level that Tambellini is. Yes, there are a couple of guys down here with potential, but once you get past Tukonen, Kanko and maybe Pushkarev, there isn't a whole lot going on...IMO, DT traded most of the farm when he traded Tambellini...

Hopefully the Kings can at least hold onto the 8th spot and get into the playoffs.

For DT to trade a scoring center for a 4th line banger says how bad lehoux stock has fallen.

There were never truer words spoken, KB. Getting rid of Tambellini is going to be another one of those stupid Kings trades where we get a bandaid, and another team get's a career 20-30 goal scorer. Maybe more, who knows? Larry Murphy anyone?

Lehoux's stock tanked, I won't dispute that. However, at the AHL level, he could be amazing at times. If the Kings hadn't traded Tambellini I wouldn't have cared if they lost Lehoux to waivers next season. My point is that with Tambellini gone and an option similar to Jackman already playing in their system (Christiansen) moving Lehoux seems a bit much.

Boyle isn't going to step into the AHL at this point in the seson and have an impact. His skills set just isn't there. I've watched him play during his career at BC and although he's shown good progress, he's still very much a project.

I've never had the opportunity to see Kopitar play live so I won't comment on him...
