    This would look amazing if Spezza wasn't done.

    I wonder if Faksa would be good in a more offensive role and then Hanzal when he's healthy could play on a shutdown #3 line demoting Spezza to the 4th line.

    Also spread it around a bit.

    Janmark - Seguin - Radulov

    Benn - Faksa - Kovalchuk (all like 6'3" and average weight 217 lbs :laugh:)

    Elie - Hanzal - Nichushkin

    Smith - Spezza - Pitlick

    I honestly like that.

    Benn is also quite good at centre if Spezza is truly done (though I’m not convinced he is).

    Janmark - Seguin - Radulov

    Kovy - Benn - Nichushkin

    Hintz - Faksa - Pitlick

    Dickinson - Hanzal - Shore

    Calgary needs to throw the kitchen sink at him and hope either he or Gaudreau can play right wing.

    I dunno, Kings fans put up pictures of Lou in their arena bathroom stalls after Kovalchook picked them over your team, if I remember correctly.

    Funny times.

    There is a group--or one dude--that used to put trading cards of the opposing team in the urinals for nearly every game.

    Regardless, he chose a significantly larger amount of money on the initial deal with New Jersey than what Lombardi was offering. At that point in time, the refrain from the majority of Devils fans was that he didn't pick New Jersey because of the much larger deal but rather because, you know, Jersey.

    I will admit it will be something else if he actually signs with the Kings 8 years later. Dodged a bullet the first time and are apparently tempting fate again.

    Sure they bring different dynamics but both will put up similar numbers at the end of the day... they just produce in different ways

    Hahaha you never fail to provide constant laughter in my house. Thanks for that.

    And for those confused by this lineup OKG believes that Bennett and Jankowski are the two best centres on this team and Bennett is going to be an all star #1 C.

    Monahan is a mediocre 3rd line RW at best. :sarcasm:

    All those 3rd line winger goals. If you ever visit a Flames GDT you’ll see those mentioned fairly often. :thumbu:

    You're not being a troll, he is. It's his shtick. He's been trying to claim that Monahan should not be a center and that Bennett, Jankowski and Backlund are all better centermen than Monahan.

    It's commonplace. At this point it's more or less become a meme on our board mocking the ridiculousness of it all.

    The guy loves being wined and dined. Loves the attention.

    Wow, it's almost like he's a skilled player who knows multiple teams are lining up for him.

    I mean, the nerve of that guy, eh?

    And yet you won't see better free agents touring the country like he does.

    Has nothing to do with him being Russian, by the way, before someone jumps down my throat about that. All about his ego.

    I hope not.
    They don't need a "me first" kind of player to poison those kids.
