That is the ~$40M question.

Hammond's pretty much covered that (which means it'll be asked 5 times)

Quote:
Question: Can't believe I forgot to ask this earlier - Will the Kings operate on a 'Cash Budget' (again) for the 2009 - 2010 season?

Answer: No, I don't believe so. The impetus for that, even though the Kings didn't say it at the time, as the attempted sale of part of the team to the Boston Celtics ownership. The Kings wanted to keep costs down in order to make the team more financially attractive to the Celtics, but that fell through. I will ask about that at a later date, but I don't believe it's an issue this summer.

1. I doubt AEG just loosens the reins and lets DL go. It is why DL has to do this fancy structuring of contracts to make sure he has enough cash in certain years.

2. Although, I like Greene and Stoll...Lubo was traded because of a deal that never happened...the principle of it ticks me off.

Is this event only for STH? Or is anyone allowed to go?

Free food. Isn't that why we go to these events?

Yep, I agree, so maybe KINGS17 can ask him if re-signing JWTFJ is still as much of a priority today as it was one year ago when he told everyone he was going to be working diligently on that!

If nobody showed up I wonder if that would change Lombardi's hard stance on signing players who don't totally suck?

Why should I? I'm not the one acting like his every utterance is an unbreakable promise. That's your job.

Lay off the exclamation points. Nothing you say is that important.

I imagine that Johnson's injury and the fact that it made his value difficult to determine by both camps had something to do with him not getting signed after he was hurt.

Is it possible that anyone could administer a dose of that Zad truth serum to our GM immediately before the breakfast tomorrow? Now that would be worth showing up for.

Ya I was right, here is the actual answer:

When are you going to retire Butch Goring's number?

DL: I'm gonna think of the cups he didn't win here (laughs) - I don't know how to answer that - I want one of our kids to get a jersey up there.

Remind me again how many Cups "the smartest man in the room" has won?

What a jerk!

No Lecavalier, no Heatley, no Briere...

Let the whining begin.

Some of you can't wait to take offense. His remark on Goring was completely innocent. Sounds like the Kings have adopted a policy of no more jerseys on the wall until a cup has been won. Sounds good to me.

I agree.

Gaborik might be target #1 though, but the deal must be reasonable.

I thought it was interesting when he said "we have to sign Johnson, Purcell and Frolov"...maybe that will put some of the rumors and about DL not wanting to sign them to rest.....nah, probably not.
