lol so much pressure on Lombardi to make a move, we all know that he folds under pressure.

See: Kovalchuk, Gaborik, Havlat, Hossa

All four of those teams will live to regret those signings. Havlat and Gaborik were reasonably priced but have heavy injury histories, Kovalchuk will pay off for a while but not the full term and any player 30 and up signing one of those lifetime deals (Hossa, Franzen, Zetterberg, et al) is a disaster waiting to happen if you ask me.

The Kings have their ducks in a row to make a move, waiving Sturm gives them some flexibility to land a guy with a very big ticket if the price is right.

If those four were the stakes, folding was the right play.

Pretty confident in saying those 4 will never win a cup.

Except that Hossa has already won one and won as many series in a three-year span as the Kings have in my cognizant lifetime.

Again I don't think the Kings should have signed any of those four, but let's not get carried away.

Kings shouldn't have signed Hossa? What possible reason is or was there for the Kings not to sign Hossa OTHER than Hossa not wanting to sign with the Kings?

Hossa was a slam dunk.

Havlat was the same thing, DL didn't want to give him the years he asked for.

Hossa is the only one I'd want but Lombardi would have had to blow the Hawks deal out of the water for him to accept.

Only knock I'd have was his contract terms, I'd have rather swallowed a cap hit up to $1.5M more for a shorter term than commit to him until the end of time.

I would like to know who they are talking to when they say the hear Lombardi is under pressure to make a deal. That's a lot of BS.

Exactly. It's not like we are in Montreal or Toronto here. Those GMs are under extreme pressure to make something happen. In LA, not so much.

did you just wake up and decide to pick the highest paid russian player? A cap hit of 6.6 million per season for kovy is a steal. If he was as obsessed as you claim he is I am pretty sure he wouldn't have signed that deal in Jersey.


Hossa signing in Chicago means that he wanted a chance to play for a contender. But when Kovy does it with Jersey (no they were not projected to be this bad lol) he is chasing money.

Are you bitter he didn't sign here in LA?

The way the deal is structured for the first Ten years of it, Kovi will get Ten million every year. He and his Agent would not budge from the Ten/100 million line. So yes it was about the Money and getting more than Ovi.

Ovi only gets paid Nine million a season. CAp hit is different than what Teams Actually pay out to the player yearly.

My numbers might be wrong about Ovi but I am pretty sure Kovi is the highest paid player in the league right now. Not Cap wise, Actually money paid to him.

Eh, wrong answer,

Kovalchuk isn't paid in cap dollars, so his cap hit has nothing to do with him wanting to be the highest paid Russian....

EDIT: And yes Jersey was projected to not be as good as last year, but that's what happens when you insist on playing Brodeur as much as they had without getting an adequate backup, and you overpay for Volchenkov and Kovalchuk...
