Surprised the Kings haven't landed anyone. With the cap room they have, they should have been able to ridiculously overpay for someone. Maybe Langer will return to LA.

...hmmmm, 6.25 per year average. Detroit could've done it, I guess he didn't really wanna come to a contender. Oh well, we lost out on ALL the top level UFA forwards! Bring on the 2nd tier UFA's! Nolan, O'Neil, Kozzie, Ricci....anyone?

I’m kinda surprised Smyth would sign with a team in the same division as the oilers.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

Really sucks to be Dean Lombardi today...So much has been said about him so far this off season about how he was working so hard to land a top UFA and they haven't gotten ANYONE. Oh well, I'm not a Kings fan so what do i care?

6.25M...too much. Especially for 5 years. I had a feeling he was going to Colorado.
It is not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.

No way Selanne leaves Anaheim. He will retire or sign a 1-year deal with them.

Kariya? I just puked...
