sounds like it's a no go.

Also, Dreger mentioned in a chat, "I know at least one team is prepared to give up a first rounder and a prospect for Whitney."

That can't be us.

He's 37 and he wants 3 years? We're not the team for him.

... Glad that it didn't work. The Kings don't need Cliff Ronning Junior.

I might be in the minority here, but I would've pulled the trigger provided the Kings aren't going to trade for anyone else. The guy is one of the most underrated players in the NHL.

Edit: yeah, he'd be 40 when the deal is done...maybe NOT the veteran we would need. So I rescind that statement. But I'm hoping people are lol-ing it off on the basis of his age when the contract would be over, not on the basis of his ability.

If that's true - Whitney playing hardball with LA because he wants to be a Penguin - I hope LA burns that bridge immediately.

I think the majority of us would sign him to a 1 year extension (Obviously DL would to since he talked to his agent)..I would go as far as 2 years. 3 would really be pushing it.

Whitney wanting a 3 year contract extension pretty much killed it, it'll be interesting to see if negotiations resume eventually.

I wouldn't Carolina a 2nd and Teubert for this guy, are you serious? He's 37, let's be real, we can look elsewhere for help..

Call Tambellini and ask about Cogliano or Gilbert Brule, or even Horcoff, great leader

Lombardi better not overpay for this chump....I know we are young and not rebuilding anymore but we traded 24 year old O'Sullivan for 27 year old Williams, 24 year old Quincey for 33 year old Smyth...I don't want to trade an 18 year old pick + 19 year old Teubert for 37 year old Whitney!

Have an odd and sad feeling that Drewiske is going to be dealt and it will end up haunting this team...

I remember when Whitney first became a free agent and was highly sought after years ago. He turned L.A. down then and seems like he is again. **** him.

Why Drewiske? Kings barely have 7 healthy D right now and Jones and O'Donnell are UFA's....We have a big gap between the guys in the NHL and the prospects...Teubert hasn't even sniffed the AHL, Hickey barely has, neither has Deslauries, and Voynov is in only his 2nd season. Martinez? Ha.

I like Drewiske, but he is not the type of player you lose and it ends up haunting the team.

With this news, I have to say it's looking like the Kings are going to end up with someone other than Whitney or Kovalchuk...which is not necessarily a bad thing, IMO.

I diagree, we have made the best offer for Whitney. If, he really doesn't want to come to LA then we will move on.

And from all accounts there is no reason to think we are not leading the race for IK.

If the package is a 2nd and one of Tuebert or Voinov and that doesn't get Whitney, one would have to think that there is potential that that same deal plus a roster player(s) may get Kovalchuk out of Atlanta. The question is who is that additional roster player.

At this point, the focus should go away from Whitney (I personally think he wants to play in Pittsburgh), and towards Kovalchuk or someone else that is a bonafided top notch player up front that helps this team out now.

OR

We could stay put...I mean, jeez, 6 in a row, and 8 out of the last 9...if it ain't broke...

no to all of them. If there's one guy i'd be interested from the Oilers it would be Fernando Pisani. His cap hit is a little much tho, I wouldn't want it to effect any chance of us landing something big.

I've heard a lot about LA leading the race for player X in the last few years...and it's never amounted to anything.

I don't doubt that DL is among the front-runners for Kovalchuk nor that LA has some of the most attractive pieces to offer in a trade; however, I do question whether or not the organization will be willing to sufficiently up the ante when things really heat up approaching the deadline. There are a lot of GM's out there who go nuts this time of year and Dean's not one of them. I can envision someone else caving and throwing the farm at Waddell a lot more easily than I can envision DL doing it.
