#LAKings reach verbal agreement with left wing Simon Gagne on two-year contract. More details to come.

Yep. Holland dropped the ball on this one. I said he'd prolly get 2 yrs 4 mill per in the other thread he got even less. Guess he'd rather have Drew Miller up front *sigh*

Can holland get off his ass and make this team better, almost every west team has gotten better except us. I guess
kenny forgot the wings haven't moved to the east yet.

I don't know if we're necessarily that much worse off, but our losses are certainly magnified by the gains of teams that are clearly pushing to win (i.e. San Jose and LA).

I really would have liked Gagne to replace (or maybe even upgrade on) the lost offense when we, in my mind, traded one of Hudler or Fil for some defenseman somewhere. I was thinking similarly to what SJ did...trade for Burns, then sign Handzus to replace Setoguchi.

Apparently this isn't going to be that type of off-season though.

Pretty sweet top 6, now they need to lock-up Drew Doughty and they'll be set. Kings are gonna be good next season.

2 years, $7 million total.

That's a low caphit. Even with the extra year and his injuries troubles, I'd match that offer in a heartbeat. <_<

How did Holland drop the ball? He said yesterday that he was exploring defensemen and wasn't looking for any forwards.

I think the Kings don't have the right coaching staff still.

By not looking for forwards initially, I would imagine.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

By signing Drew Miller instead of a top-six forward.
