I don't think the Kings need a guy like Souray because they already have Visnovsky, Johnson, Harrold and Blake. We need someone that can actually play defense. They need a guy like Scott Hannan. He won't bring much offense but he is a young physical defensive defensman. The rumor out of Ottawa is that Chris Phillips will re-signed for 3.5-4 M and he is pretty much the same player as Hannan so it would be great if DL can sign Hannan to a similar deal.
Did you begin watching the Kings just this year? Anyone who's followed the team for most of the last decade would have more respect for what he meant for the team over that time.
I get your point. Its touchy with Kings fans. But O well. The fact of the matter is he just wasn't that good. Its not as if he was our Yzerman, Sakic , Lemieux ect... It was the best move for the organization.
