Don't Be Stupid

If ANYONE thinks Dean Lombardi is stupid enough to trade away Anze Kopitar for ANYONE, he needs to stick his head into a dirty toilet.

Please read on...

I hate rumors and I'm really wondering where this particular one got started. This really has got to be the most asinine rumor. The Ottawa Sun is reporting something is brewing, but, honestly, I can't believe people are considering this. In a three-way trade the Chicago Blackhawks would send G Nikolai Khabibulin and D Cam Barker/D Brent Seabrook to the Senators, the Sens would send G Martin Gerber and D Andrej Meszaros to the Kings, and the Kings would send Kopi to Chicago. WHAT?!?! This would be a mistake of gigantic proportions. How do those two guys equal Kopi? How does that equate to being a positive for the Kings? Why would Lombardi trade away our top line center and future extraordinaire for two minor players from the Sens?

Can't see this happening? BECAUSE IT WON'T. EVER.

This rumor probably started because either Brian Murray or Dale Tallon inquired about Kopi just to see what Lombardi would say. I'm sure they were met with, "Hell f**kin' no." If Lombardi wanted all of Los Angeles to drive him out of the city with stakes and pitchforks, this is what he would do: trade away Kopi, Dustin Brown, Patrick O'Sullivan, Alexander Frolov, Jonathan Bernier, Jack Johnson, and Drew Doughty for picks in 2009, 2011, and 2012. Do you see that happening? I didn't think so. So, to whomever started this rumor, please run headfirst into the nearest wall.

i can't see even the bulin wall being traded after lalime left for buffalo. no offense but kopitar is not worth the loss of a seasoned goalie.

I've been following this too and how do you think I feel about Seabrook?! He was our first line d-man with Duncan Keith. He is off limits.

So this trade is bad for both the Kings and Blackhawks. Why is this in the news? Because it involves Ottawa, a big-name Canadian hockey market. I honestly can't stop laughing at how terrible this rumor is.

It's been walking around for a while and this is the only time Kopitar's name has really surfaced. Sharp's name has surfaced as well but I don't think that will happen.

The Sun probably reported this to get a rise out of people and they really got a rise. Sportsnet.ca is reporting what the Sun is saying as well. Really, though, I don't think anyone knows how this will pan out.

Hahaha, now I'm going to giggle about the "needs to go stick their head in a dirty toilet" thing for a while. I may even use it the next time people are trying to get me to do something I don't want to at work.
