Little words are needed here, just sit back and watch the video. While it’s never easy to talk about a guy losing his job, that’s not really what’s highlighted in the clip. Instead, watch the Philly media attack Flyers management and owner Ed Snider. You’ll quickly understand why both sides have the reputations they do…
Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to read the article put up over the weekend predicting what moves the Kings would be making to get down to the maximum roster size of 23 players. Perhaps the most common question asked this week is how/why Tyler Toffoli didn’t make the final list.

In Carcillo the Kings add a left wing (and a left shot) [...]
Earlier today we shared some comments from Kings GM Dean Lombardi regarding ongoing contract negotiations with several of the team’s young players.
In addition to re-signing Keaton Ellerby to a one-year contract, Lombardi also added unrestricted free agent Jeff Schultz last Friday. Now, when you add in the qualifying offers he made to Alec Martinez and [...]
