We would be talking about what a stellar team we would have and how we have a real shot at the cup.

I don't see how keeping Johnson after next year, is worth more than having Kovy and a 1st....

maybe it is flawed. Who knows...I just know that if I were offered Kovy and a 1st for Johnson...it is accepted instantly, and it is exactly what we are turning down right now.

OK... time to leave fantasyland and come back to realityville.

While the Kings have cap space, if Kovalchuk is asking for $100MM... then they don't have that much cap space without taking on a 12-14 year contract to get the cap hit down to a number where they can afford to keep Doughty... much less Johnson.

Who here wants Kovalchuk on a 13+ year contract? Sweet Jesus.

Next year, we should have 3 guys who will be ready.
LA still needs JJ because no one in the system brings his game and it would be foolish to rely on kids to fill his role that early into their career.
