We need a superboss aka Padriag Quinn .

Archie Bunker you need to get out of your cranky lazy Boy chair and start liking Benning. He's great

Over the summer Lucic was asked to waive to go to Vancouver. He said yes. He was told by his agent a deal with Vancouver was imminent. I know this because he started texting family and friends that he was coming home and was pumped. Sometime between his agent telling him a deal was imminent and Lucic texting, the Kings came in and made a better offer, one Benning wouldn't match.

He has always told his friends in Vancouver that he would love to finish his career in Vancouver. He has his cup, sure he'd love more, but he has always relished the idea of finishing up here. His wife also wants to be here.

Benning makes no secret that he would love Lucic on his team and he and Lucic have a close relationship.

The fly in the ointment, Lucic never thought he'd have an opportunity to play in LA and both he and his wife love it there. He would still sign in Vancouver if LA can't or won't re-sign him but his first choice now may be the Kings. He is enjoying LA and also the anonymity that comes from playing in that market.m

So yes, the rumours are true it's just a matter if LA can retain him. If they don't Benning will step up.

Mixed feelings on that one. We needed him 3 years ago but now they need some youth.

Well, it's pretty fucking pointless trying to make it to the playoffs. Is there no doubt we are spank material in the first round if we do? Why bother?

Kopitar is going to fuck their budget. The Kings may not be able to sign Looch

The team will be dogshit for a few years . They need an actual deterrent who can actually punish the opposition and pretext his teammates . Dorsett and Prust don't scare anyone . They will have a shitton of elc deals coming up and if Retardo stops signing dummy deals to the Sbisas and Millers of the world they should have ample cap space . I would have liked to see Brent Seabrook get to ufa but the Hawks wisely re upped him . Team needs to get bigger , better and meaner . Lucic checks all the boxes .

But is Bo good in the community like Manny? That's all that matters

That should be a floor for him . He has more talent than Malhotra but he is absolutely snakebitten right now and has little confidence in his game.

Hutton, Dank, Hank, Baertschi, Hansen and Vrbata: the only even in the +- area tonight.

This team has no business being in a playoff spot. Getting there will be embarrassing for us, a first round exit for sure.

I can't help cheering for them every game but find I am ok with every loss. Jim, start making trades, dump some players and cap, get some picks.

I have no problem getting Lucic for 3-4 years but I fear a 7 year 6-7 million dollar deal.

I'll say it again about Bo. Most fans thought he was ready for second line duty and a lot of fans were upset with the Sutter acquisition/extension. But Benning repeatedly said that Bo wasn't ready and needed sheltering. Benning repeatedly said he wanted to protect him and let him keep developing. That's what we are seeing. The kid is a leader and right now I think he is shouldering the burden of having to replace Sutter.

He will be a 2/3 line centre for us down the road. No worries.

But boy could we use an Auston Matthews. Can you see it: Matthews, McCann, Horvat, Cassells?
