"We found out, to our chagrin and surprise the other day, we had been told the cap was going to be $71 [million] and now with the Canadian dollar having tanked, that the cap could be as low as $68 [million]. That's a huge swing,"

-Dean Lombardi, GM ofl the Los Angeles Kings.  More on the Kings including the Gaborik trade from Helene Elliott of the LA Times.

My favorite part of this quote is the “we’re too dumb to figure this out on our own” that Lombardi doesn’t even realize he’s implying here.

Ugh. They interviewed the wrong person in the organization. Farmer Brown err Sutter would have had a far superior grasp of the machinations of foreign currency exchange than Lombardi.
