Purcell 3 pts in 2 games. Plus a 3rd round. What a steal from LA.

Just a few days since Vinik took over full control and Vinny is showing up again. Coincidence?

Why didn't Kenopka dress? Injury or just lineup change? I thought he'd be in there to goon it up against a divisional opponent.

Ownership stability attracts fans? Or maybe we're just trying to impress Vinik.

I'm at the game and it's pretty amazing. Besides the Pittsburgh game I haven't seen it this packed.

Considering I've seen only about 5 Thrasher fans total I'm wondering if all the people who said they would never go to another game as long as OK owned them actually followed through.

It's late and Atlanta is losing so of course they are going to goon it up like the pathetic franchise they are.

It's a bit early to call it a 'steal' as Purcell has had impressive stretches in the past but failed to establish himself as an NHL regular. And we needn't exaggerate the value of third round picks because you are really talking about a <20% chance of drafting a decent NHL regular.

That said, Purcell has looked good and I'm one of the few Kings fans who supported him and still felt he has top-6 upside. Teddy has real slick hands, is a great playmaker and has improved his willingness to battle this season. He'll never be an especially effective forward in tough battles but he's willing to at least try now.

I think Tampa is a perfect fit. He'll be given an opportunity to play with star talent and you guys have a tight cap/budget situation so you need some cheap, effective top-9 talent. As far as I'm concerned, Purcell is more talented than Moulson and Matt has gone on to establish himself as a decent top-6er.

So - yeah - it's not a steal yet but I think in due time it will be. But he really wasn't going to get an opportunity again in LA so it's good for him. Hopefully Halpern can help us win some games in the playoffs so it's more of a win-win.

Glad to hear that the Purse is doing all right in Tampa... I knew that he needed a change of scenery because he flat out didn't fit our system... Again...thanks for taking him...
