Dustin Penner leaves, Dan Carcillo joins LA Kings

Penner SC Final LA Kings

A little sarcasm on this fine Tuesday… With the departure of Ron Hextall on Monday, Kings GM Dean Lombardi moved quickly to replace his Flyers quotient by adding left wing Daniel Carcillo on Tuesday.
[Happy now? Back to playing it straight for a few minutes.]
In Carcillo the Kings add a left wing (and a left shot) […]

AUDIO: Ron Hextall conference call, leaving LA for Flyers

Philadelphia Flyers icon

On Monday afternoon news broke that Ron Hextall would be leaving the Kings organization and rejoining the Philadelphia Flyers.  It’s essentially a lateral move, as he’ll be the Assistant GM there as well.  Regardless, a few hours later media were invited to ask him questions during a conference call, where he tried to help everybody make sense of […]

A prospect’s jounral: What it’s really like on the road

Brown Bettman Stanley Cup by Ikiri

What hook might the NHL use to try and lure fans back to the game should the lockout end in the coming week?
It’s a question many have pondered, as most of the ‘tools’ used in 2005 won’t be available this time around. Back then they rolled out a slew of rule changes and ideas designed to make the game […]

In other Simmonds related news, he’s headed overseas with childhood friend […]
