Captain Canada


Said on this here blog Sunday, March 1, 2009:

“Rumors are flying left and right with the trade deadline coming up Wednesday at noon. The only one I’ve read that has interested me has been the possibility of Ryan Smyth coming to the Kings. If I’m the Kings GM, I make that trade in a heartbeat. There is a reason Ryan Smyth is called Captain Canada and he’s the exact type of dirty, hardworking, goal scoring forward that this team needs. And you know what? I might even give up one of my prized young goalies to make the trade. Because after all, Jon Quick is now the Kings goalie of the present and the future.”

Thank you Dean Lombardi… Thank you.
