He can’t hear you, he’s got his Stanley Cup ring in his ear.

I mean, he won’t be able to hear you very well if you stand on one side of him.

Once they actually get their rings.

I don’t think Lombardi actually understands that the real work now lies ahead of him.  The whispers and snickers won’t stop until he proves himself, and one flukey run from the #8 seed just isn’t enough to prove anything to anyone.

Considering it was his predecessor, Dave Taylor, who drafted Brown, Quick and Kopitar and it was Deano’s annual lowball tactics that led to the holdout of Doughty and Deano’s mouth that led to Jack Johnson demanding out (it really says something about your organisation when a player is happy to get traded to Columbus), i’d say yes, Deano, you ARE an idiot… and I say that as a long time Kings fan, 20 years+ who finally got so fed up with the Deano’s BS in L.A. that I started to favor my other team, Chicago.

Hey look, it’s a fairweather fan who’s a little butt-hurt over the fact that his “old” team is now better than his “new” team.

Awwwwww, poor baby…  I guess Deano forcing Jack Johnson to demand a trade really screwed LA, huh?

No doubt you guys are all smarter than Dean. Just circumstance that keeps you from running an NHL team. Keep it up, you’re almost there.
