Kings get Straka

For Strbak & Anshakov.

It was reported on the Fox Sport West Kings game vs. Dallas.

No link yet.

I don't think any Kings fans will miss Strbak, but there is a lot of unknown upside potential from Anshakov.

Based on the Kings needs at this time, it's a great move.

Based on the future, who knows what the Penguins will be getting in Anshakov.

hehe, if this is true, I feel for Straka.

He's been rather injury plagued the last couple of seasons, now he's going to the injury capital of the world -- LA.

Hopefully their luck will change, but I'm skeptical...

It's about time the Kings pulled the trigger on a deal to get somebody with NHL experience on the ice to fill some of their holes. The rooks and AHL journeymen have done a wonderful job keeping the Kings in the hunt, but it couldn't last forever and you knew the Kings needed a top six forward.
I just hope Straka doesn't get bit by the injury bug. Nah... that wouldn't happen to a Kings player.

Good trade for the Kings - I guess the salary problems weren't as truthful as originally thought

This is just ridiculous. Something has to be done in Pittsburgh. Penguins lose their second best player and only get back a potential second line winger who's at least two more years away? This all happened because of Fleury's contract. I hope he realizes what he did to the organization by demanding that ludicrous contract. Sure, he'll have his money. What he won't have is any offensive support, not that there was any to begin with, because the team has to pay him 5 million this year. Five freakin' million for an 18-year-old rookie. Mike Dunham doesn't even make five million. Half the starting goalies in the league don't make 5 million.

What a joke the NHL is.

Never even heard of any of those players.

Regardless it's a good trade for Pittsburgh since Straka costs 4.3 million this year and 4.7 next year and isn't doing anything with us.

Plus it clears the way for Kris Beech to get promoted.

I wish Marty all the best in LA.

Don't blame Pittsburgh, blame Boston for that rediculous contract they gave Joe Thornton. All first overall picks since then have been like this, Fleury's contract is a carbon copy of DiPietro's.

Anshankov is a solid young prospect that keeps getting better all the time. The blokes at russianprospects.com like him allot and they are bloody well great at knowing those things.

Strbak had a two goal game this season with the Kings and has some real offensive skills. With some ice time he could be a dandy of a #456 D guy. Good deal for ya! Great deal for the Kings!

Straka doing something significant on another team, I like to see that.

As a panthers fan, the only thing he did was get the GW against the Penguins, of all teams, to get us to the Finals against the Avs.

Knowing the Kings luck something will happen to Straka and he'll be out most the season, but it's not like they gave up much to get him.

Title of this thread should be "Pens trade Straka for Ovechkin."

Very sad indeed.

I wonder if this is what the Kings were offering for Comrie?

Congrats, Ducks fans, Comrie will soon be yours.

Not necessarily... The Kings are, or will soon be, receiving a fairly large amount of cash back as the insurance on Jason Allison kicks in. That being said, if Allison and Deadmarsh return before the season ends, the Kings could be looking at a $50-55+ million payroll next season. Although, considering what a healthy Kings team could look like, that doesn't sound too unreasonable. Just imagine...

Straka - Allison - Deadmarsh
Frolov - Stumpel - Palffy
Robitaille - Cammalleri - Klatt
Avery - Belanger - Laperriere

Norstrom - Corvo
Miller - Kuznetsov
Visnovsky - Modry

Cechmanek
Huet

Not to mention Brown, Armstrong and Gleason.

If there ever was a case of "Oh, what might have been...", this is it. Well, at least since '93.

Thornton's last contract for 2000-2001,2001-2002,2002-2003 was
1.5/1.8/2.5 (maybe even 2.25) and I am sure he was signed for less before.How does that compare to 5 mil?

Because you are forgetting about the bonus structure. The model contract that has allowed players such as Fleury, Dipietro, Heatley, Kovalchuk, Gaborik, etc. to earn large sums of money even with the relatively modest base salary is based completely on Thornton's deal with Boston in 1997. It has set the standard for "post-Daigle" rookie contracts.
