I want no part of Alexander Semin on this team. His antics last season shows me he has a bad attitude who is in this game for the money. Unless he shows me otherwise, absolutely not. He didn't get what he wanted so he ran away to Russia and made a whole bunch of empty threats.


As for Conroy being traded, that's one of the more ridiculous things I've heard all offseason. Let's make the team younger and dump one of the true leaders this game has to offer while taking away from a position that the Kings are already short on.

Holy crap, Garrioch on an Eklund rumor?

Why don't they bring in Al Strachan to form the Three Stooges of media?

Conroy for a first is realistic, though. Look at what Doug Weight and Dwayne Roloson got. It's be a good move for Washington. Trade a 1st for Conroy, load him up with points playing with AO for 1.5 years. Trade him for a 1st+prospect half-way through 2007-2008. Nice!

Washington's 1st is a lot more valuable than almost anyone else's.

conroy is born in 1971 as far as i could remember, so that would be true, and he's got a great contract for his skill as a defensive center who also puts up the points

It's not realistic if it's Washington's 1st we're talking about. That 1st round pick is probably going to be a top 10 draft pick. Washington is a team that is rebuilding and there is a very slim chance that they make the playoffs this season so why would they trade away their 1st round pick for an aging veteran. Weight and Roloson were traded midseason when their values were at their highest. I would hold onto Conroy until the trading deadline when his value would be at it's highest.

Forget Semin, Id rather have the Kings try to get Mike Green, if the Caps were willing to trade prospects the quality of Semin and Green. Ive been high on Green since his days in junior and think hes one of the more underrated D prosepects these days.

wishful thinking...Green isnt going to be traded, let alone any of the capitals young dmen...granted the capitals are lacking a true 1st or 2nd line center but if they trade a dmen without getting one in return all they're doing is opening up a hole while plugging another one

Trading Conroy without getting a top-6 center in return just does not many any sense. That's not to say that the rumor isn't true... just that, if it is, I have no clue what Lombardi has in mind. He has made clear that he wants a competitive team and doesn't want to rush Kopitar, but trading Conroy would undermine both. It just doesn't seem likely unless it's for someone like Gomez or Briere, because, otherwise, it just creates a big hole and a big problem.

You guys can keep Conroy... I'd rather wait for Backstrom to come in next year then overpay and send a prospect for an old vet who only has 2-3 good years left in him.

This whole rumor is, well, crap. Trading Conroy would be a mistake at this point in time. LA would need a center in return and Conroy has the kind of leadership that the kids need to be around.

Eklund has been peddling the Conroy trade theory since the draft. If there's any credence at all to it, you have to figure that Craig's the one who's interested in leaving.

Why would LA do this? You guys already have very little offensive depth.

I heard Conroy has also been offered to both Detroit and New Jersey. Apparently, DL values selfishness more than teamwork. Conroy is for sure in confict with Avery, it will be interesting to see how the lack of leadership will affect the Kings this season. The upside is were looking at some high draft picks in years to come--that is if DL has the guts not to trade them.

Huh? Where are you hearing this nonsense?

A)Conroy has stood up for Avery in the past, and B)What lack of leadership? McCauley, Thornton, Blake, Norstrom, Miller, Armstrong don't provide any?

What makes you think he only has 2-3 good years left? He's 34! Look at Brind'Amour.

This makes more sense. First, Nashville is a perfect trading partner because of their crop of defensive prospects, an area of great need for the Kings. Unfortunately, Poile probably backed away for Eklund to use past tense and talk only about Washington now. Second, it makes sense that Conroy isn't being shopped, but that Lombardi is listening to offers. He probably has no intention of trading Conroy unless a team offers something that he can't refuse, such as was the case with Demitra. I don't think that Conroy will be traded, but, even if he is, it'll be for something substantial enough that few people here would mind that much (see: Demitra trade).

Which is exactly why I responded to that post by saying.
