  1. So Rob Blake’s “vision” is Laich, Cammalleri, Amadio, Crecenzi, and now Jokinen and Mitchell? I’m really LOST here. He didn’t make ANY moves in the off season and if it wasn’t for Iafallo, we’d be battling Phoenix for the 1st pick.

    Two Words: Evander Kane – Do it Deano! LOL

    But Johnny, you’ve been preaching Michael (‘he’s untouchable”) Mersch (he flopped) and told us how much we’d love Andreoff (we don’t) so why such love for LaDue? Blake didn’t see it either so he went out and got Folin.

    But I love hearing your voice, so keep up the good work and lets just enjoy the two cups until we die.

    • Actually, I’m lost with some of your comments.

      So… if it wasn’t for Iafallo, the Kings wouldn’t be in first place?

      As for Mersch, I don’t recall saying he was untouchable. To the best of my recollection, the untouchable tag was given to me by the office for three players over the past seven Trade Deadlines – Toffoli, Kempe, LaDue. That said, the Lombardi mgmt team was high on Mersch. They had to be, the organization lacked LW depth. In the end, it’s looking more and more like Mersch won’t make it. So be it. Also… While Lombardi traded away MANY prospects, he didn’t deal Mersch, did he? The ones we told you he was keeping, he kept.

      I think you’re connecting the dots wrong on LaDue. Blake began going to North Dakota to try and sign him starting in 2015. If he didn’t like him, he would have let the scouts handle it. He got involved with the player because he knew how important it was to get him into the fold. Finally story on LaDue is still yet to come.
