Yeah, another Vinny thread/poll

I know it seems like this is all we are discussing, but I felt we needed a new thread, and I find this more interesting than Matt Fillier.

This poll is directed specifically to those who DO NOT want Vinny on this team. I am very curious to see why exactly people are against him.

I understand all the arguments, but I'm trying to gauge more specifically what the apologist/Pro-DL/anti-DL making the kind of move he has always talked about/anti-VL/pro prospect crowd is most worried about.

Vote away.

Hmm. I don't see a "he's an ugly overrated and overpriced has been who won't help us make the playoffs and isn't worth losing prospects."

It's not for me, but I figured someone else may want to choose that.

I figured face-hating would cover that.

Where's the "he will be in his prime for at least three more seasons, he's the best player to wear a Kings jersey since Ziggy Palffy, center depth is much more important in today's NHL than a flashy European winger, and he would certainly help us make the playoffs while providing important, Cup winning experience and mentorship to our still developing, future number one center" option?

I did say this was only for those against it.

I'm trying to better understand the enemy.

I vote "no" because I hate change.

Bringing Vinny in would actually win games for the Kings and if the Kings won a few games, made the playoffs and actually made it past the first round, I would feel icky.

When I looked at the poll, I felt like I was being asked: "When did you STOP beating your dog?"

Well, I didnt, because I never started beating my dog, primarily because I dont have one!

I think a trade for VL would be good, depending of course, on what we have to give up to get him.

If you want to fix the poll, I think one of the choices should be:
"Because KriticalKing says so!"

since i'm still a bit on the fence about this, although i am leaning towards the 'for it' side, i think one of the options you should have up there is : i'm afraid what we'll have to give up will be too much. that's the biggest thing for me.

what is too much? that's a different story.

i said a poll like this should have been done along time ago bc it seems like a waste of time arguing over whether it's a good idea or not when we don't know the entire terms of the deal, i guess that's what the trade forum board is for.

I'm against getting Lecavalier only becuase of what I feel we'd have to give up to get him. I'm fine with trading prospects, but there are certain people that I don't want to see dealt PERIOD.

I have no problem with the Kings acquiring Vinny as long as we don't have to give up Frolov, Johnson or Simmonds to get him. I love Moller, but I could get past dealing him for Vinny. Obvioulsy Doughty, Kopi, Brown can't be dealt either. I'd offer Moller, Stoll, choice of Voinov/Teubert and a 2nd rd in 09. Anything beyond that, and TB can keep Vinny and his contract.

I guess the bottom line is this, I'm not dead-set against trading for Vinny, I just like other options a LOT more. Sign Gaborik, Hossa or Havlat (only costs $$$ and not assets). Trade for Simone Gagne (a more ideal fit for our needs IMO and younger/cheaper than VL).

I'm for the trade assuming we don't give up too much but I chose "I hate his face" because I can't stand those NHL network commercial he is in. Dion Phaneuf is ten times worse in them but Vinny is pretty annoying and it makes me angry when I hear that play by play announcer say "ohhhh and finally Luuuuundquist cooooovers uuuuup".

Does anyone hate those NHL Network commercials as much as I do?

I don't think I've seen Kopitar in one but I'm sure it is bad.

The worst is Dion Phaneuf's facial expression when he says "your watching the NHL Network". It is almost as homo-erotic as that signed Dustin Brown photo they sent out season ticketholders a few years ago where he is holding the stick above shoulders and arms wearing workout clothes.

There needs to be a choice for B), C), and E), because all of those are valid concerns.

Again it boils down to what we give up and what we get in return.
