His finger looks jacked up in that picture too.

I could only imagine how painful (physically) that rebound on that 4th goal must have been now.

Start Fuku. Why not? We aren't going for the freaking Cup this year, anyway.

How long do broken fingers tend to take to heal, usually?

Depends on the break. Usually 4-6 weeks.

He played the whole game last night, so, hopefully, it's not as serious as it could be. Probably, the best-case scenario is that it's the same finger as in the photo, it gave him a little trouble in the game last night, so they want to give it a rest and re-evaluate it in 7 days. Hopefully, it's not more serious than that.

Nope - If you look at the picture you'll see it's on his right hand.

Nah, it'll be like what happened to Cloutier..

"Finger soreness"

"Finger break'

"Finger amputation"

"Knee injury, out indefinitely"

"We're trying a little," General Manager Dean Lombardi said Friday. He said the Kings put in a claim for former Ducks minor leaguer Michael Leighton, "but Philly took him. We have been looking, but it just shows you the way the goalie market is — even guys in that category are getting picked up."

I think Chad Rawn may have the number of a goalie that would probably jump at the chance.

Is it that farfeteched that Bob Esche may be coming here for a conditional pick? It would only cost us about $450,000 to pay for him and hell we might even be able to send someone back the other way to cover the salary.

Brust is fundamentally terrible. You wouldn't be any worse off with Fukufuji in net.

But here's the thing... wasn't it reported that Cloutier might be out for the season? So wouldn't it make sense to recall Labarbera since they wouldn't have to send him back down to the minors anyway???? All that I can think of is that the Kings are planning on acquiring a goalie that would give them a reason to leave Labarbera down in the minors.

for the ?th time... under NO circumstances can the Kings recall Jason LaBarbera this season without subjecting him to re-entry waivers.

OK FOR THE LAST TIME.... JASON LABARBERA WILL GET CLAIMED OFF OF WAIVERS THE MINUTE THEY TRY TO BRING HIM UP. HE WOULD NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY IN A KINGS UNIFORM. IF MICHAEL "FRIGGIN" LEIGHTON IS GOING TO GET CLAIMED JASON LABARBERA WILL GET CLAIMED. THEY MIGHT AS WELL KEEP LABARBERA DOWN AND SEE HOW FAR MANCHESTER CAN GO THIS SEASON.
the previous message is brought to you by the redundant posters of north america for continually saying the same thing by repeating themselves over and over again simply because people don't seem to understand the concept of "reverse waivers."

I can see it now... Kings fan walks up to DL after he gives a Leiweke-like slick phony PR oriented answer with both cheeks full of hash browns and says,"Let's see if you can guess what I am now.."

Said fan then smacks down both of his cheeks and fried potato shoots out of his mouth all over DL's Armani as he answers his own question.. "I'm a zit, get it?"

I would pee my pants.

I think I've read about this, actually. By tagging it as an "Emergency Recall," the Kings are able to avoid taking a cap hit from Fukufuji's salary during that 48 hour window that he's with the team.

So say his contract is $400,000. The Kings cap would normally get tagged for something like $4,878.05 per game -- the per game average for a $400,000 contract -- but are able to avoid it by giving it the "Emergency" tag.

I'm... pretty sure I've got the facts straight here.

A couple of things about the Fukufuji recall.

He is NOT in LA on a Goaltender Exemption. That's the clause in the CBA that allows NHL teams to expand their roster to 24-players for the purpose of adding a goaltender for 48-hrs. Every team is allowed two Goaltender Exemptions per season including playoffs...

Emergency Conditions are when a team drops below 20-players (healthy). 2-goaltenders, six-defensemen and 12-forwards. When Garon became injured, the Kings qualified for Emergency Conditions as Cloutier was already on IR, therefore Brust was the only healthy goalie on the Kings roster...

In other words, the Goaltender Exemption (48-hr thing) has NOTHING to do with Emergency Conditions. Nothing. They are totally unrealted conditions...

There are minimal benifits (spousal airfare, accomodations, etc.) to a team to recall a player under emergency conditions during the regular season...

Honestly, based on Esche's play this year, there would be some fans BEGGING for the return of Cloutier.

That's true but there's a very complicated scenerio where the Kings could have him in uniform this season. What it would take is for team A to claim Labarbera on recall waivers and immediately trade him to team B. Then team B trades Labarbera back to the Kings for a conditional draft pick. The Kings would then send a "thank you" 4th rounder to team A for say some low level rights to a European prospect who will not ever see the NHL.

Complicated yes, but in theory if I understand the waiver priority correctly, it could happen. I think the only way it work is if team A were Philadelphia though. Any claim Philadelphia were to put in if team A were another club would mean Labarbera would go to Philadelphia correct? The waiver process mean any double claims go to the team with the worse record correct?
