Being realistic about our roster

Let's face it. Even the best teams turn over about 2/3 of their roster every 3-5 years or so. Why, because these players are replaceable. There is always another option out there.

Right now, on the 23 man roster and injured reserve, looking at ability, age, leadership role and contract situation, who makes up the Kings core? These are the guys who I see being here a long time.

Kopitar, Brown, Simmonds, Doughty, Johnson, Greene and Quick.

I love our team and group of prospects, but it's inevitable that some top players will move on one way or the other. But that's OK. We have the system and depth in place to keep this going.

Imagine adding Kovalchuk to that group. That's a darn good top 8.

That's not the main reason. I don't want to trade a bunch of assets for what seems to be a selfish and greedy player.

Well, it's not only the player himself that this is about.

It's also that basically the whole hockey world is watching to see what the Kings and their GM will do. And that is a rare situation for this team to be in.

So having him as the second line center is not great but we also have Zeus that can play with Smyth and Brown if Richardson can't get it done.

Oh almost forgot, FYI Richardson is currently our 1st line LWinger.
Again, not for a rental. He would have to sign an extension for me to trade Stoll. Even then, I probably wouldn't trade Stoll.

That's if he signs an extension. Then say goodbye to Johnson & Greene or Brown. We know what he wants....max salary? I don't think so.

I like the guy, but only if he signs an extension that will not tie up 20% of the kings payroll. He gets paid just under what Malkin, Crosby & Ovie make. Take it or leave it.

It seems clear that ATL has been all about PR control. The franchise has been pretty hard to like for the past decade, and are about to become even less attractive by losing the face of the franchise. how terrible would it have been if ATL cannot convince its player to stay with his own team, but the player agrees to an extension as soon as the opportunity arises with someone else. If the team's own players dont like the team, why should the fans?

but now at the point of helplessness, the team showed it tried by releasing the numbers, and can now use the negotiation rights as yet another bargaining chip with teams interested in trade.

Lombardi didn't want his players worrying about being a part of any impending deal tonight so he asked Waddell to leak that he was being traded to the East

How funny would it be if the link to the confirmed trade was the 1000th post in this thread.
