They claimed that it was to send a message that the way that the team played on Saturday night was unacceptable, but the coincidence with a Sopel trade rumor and Conroy's trade makes me skeptical. I'm very suspicious that it was at the request of potential trading partner. You never publicly disclose the truth in such situations.

I'm curious as to what the reports / news will be tomorrow. If he does move, I'm guessing to ATL. What do you think?

I hope he goes somewhere. Nothing against Sopel, but let's just ship guys like him out so we can get this team going in a more youth-oriented direction ASAP.

I'd like to see him stay. I dunno why, maybe it's the hair blinding my decision making process... We'll need reasonably smart puck moving defencemen w/ good speed to go along with the youth.

That said, it IS interesting that Sopel, a guy who thrived under Crawford previously, was chosen to sit in order to send a message to the team... Sounds like the dominos will fall soon.

Yeah, it was sure effective - team sucked just as bad! I am a Kings fan and was at the game and it was not pretty.

It's hard to point out how to toss and who to keep with such a terrible season. There are some obvious choices, but most of others are hard to say.

Benching Sopel sends a message to the rest of the team... how?

It doesn't -- just look at how they played that game
