Can we stop talking about LA now?

Since before the draft, I didn't buy into the LA rumours about the future home of King Heatley. Right before the draft, the Kings held their State of the Franchise conference call and it was then that Assistant GM Ron Hextall referred to King Heatley as a 'red flag'. Despite publicly asking for a top line left winger via trade or UFA, Hextall's comments made it clear that LA wasn't into the questionable attitude of our trade bait. Had Hextall just said that he wasn't sure if they could afford his salary or have the assets to trade, that would have been considered posturing. But he spoke directly about character and attitude concerns. In my opinion, the trade fodder was just a result of us finding a team that had a need, had cap space, and had a series of young prospects. Looked right on paper, but Hextall nuked it ASAP. Ryan Smyth just validated that. Can we leave that one alone now?

In a slightly related story, talk today mentioned that we were one of a few teams talking to Pinball Mike Comrie. Awesome! When we re-acquired him this season, he sounded as if he acknowledged that he should have waited a bit longer last time to see if the Sens could find the money for him. Instead, he took the Islanders deal. Let's hope he likes the Sens as much as he says he does and gives Murray time to see if we can fit him into our cap. Comrie at $2M is a great fit and a legit top six forward.

Finally, it sounds like Wiercioch and Karlsson are turning heads at the prospects camp. All the more reason to lump Gator into any Heatley trade. Gives us the $2.6M in cao space AND holds a spot in case one of those two continues to dazzle in September.

With havin so much content and articles do you
ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Cheers!
