If Eklund were a travel agent he would sell you a flight ticket to New York but you end up in LA.

After Lombardi's comments about their effort in trying to get Kovie and the possibility of it not happening, it fails to suprise me that Eklund fabricated something that MAY be an option for LA if they are that desperate to upgrade their top 6.

I'm sure the Kings are walking away from Kovy because he wanted too much money for too many years. Why would they then acquire an older player with an almost $8 million a year cap hit for the next 10 years? Yeah, makes tons of sense.

especially since Lombardi would have to GIVE UP assets WHILE picking up a hefty contract that Lombardi didn't even want to give to a more superior player that the kings actually needed.

Eklund also said that Pitts is interested in Kovy (with the ever popular 100 year $200,000,000 contract, probably), so I think he's back to throwing **** on the wall and seeing what sticks.

No, if Eklund were a travel agent he would sell you a flight ticket to NY but once you went to check-in you'd learn that there are no flights to NY. THen you'd learn that the airport you're standing in isn't even an airport but rather, a figment of your imagination.

There's actually some substance to this according to a few people in the Tampa Bay media but I seriously doubt it happens.

Didn't Yzerman tell Vinny he was not going to be traded? If so it is not a good way to start setting a precedent.

Eklund sucks!

I think he heard it wrong..... It's the Kings (Sacramento) are after LeBron.....not the Kings (LA) are after Lecavalier....another winner from Hockeybutts.com

Can we just replace the thread title with Trade Rumors, Free Agent Talk and Stuff Ecklund Made Up For No Reason?

FWIW, a few people on the Kings' board whom I trust say the rumor has some legs.

It's July 4th in the US
Eck's had a couple of beers
His iPad and blackberry must be idle
He was probably BBQing so he heated up
If Kovalchuck wasn't going to LA someone else had to, Voila Vinny!!

I think Lecavalier to Montreal was an E5 at one stage

Please don't link his site, this is the same guy that said Semin would be traded for Brodeur straight up. If this wasn't the 21st century Eklund would have been executed by the state or locked up in an insane asylum many years ago.

Apparently Vinny was actually traded to Montreal at one point but the deal was blocked by the league because the Lightning owners were trying to sell.

The Lightning ownership killed the deal, not the league.
