    What was the reaction on the floor Rich. Big cheer?

  • Josh

    I had a feeling Cammi was going

    Bye Bye

  • Lunchboxap

    wow
    that worked out well
    now lets see who we pick at 12

  • Mark

    Great move. Way to go Deano!

  • anthony

    Hooray.
    This is one of the happiest days for me as a kings fan.
    Wished we could have gotten a player though.
    Let this puck hog screw around with Mike Keenan.
    IF HE DARES TO TRY!

    I have a joke to share.
    When Lord Cammi goes to Las Vegas to gamble, which hotel does he stay at.

    THE FLAMINGO
    Get it.

  • Paul-Cat

    Curious if they are hoping if Tyler Myers slips to them.

  • Anti Anthony

    Wow, hopefullty we can get Myers with that pick

  • TeamHasHoles

    HORRIBLE VALUE for a future point a game leader!!! Calgary just stole a terrific player from us…

  • Good2BKings

    That is a terrible trade. Could have got a lot more for him at the deadline, last season or this season. That #12 pick had better be special.

  • PuckHead27

    Kings move up 16 picks, but the Ducks pick up an extra 1st rounder to drop 5. Pretty nice deal for Anaheim.

  • Josh

    Point a game leader?

    OK I agree Canada i goign to be good for Cammi. Seens like he got a little side tracked in LA.

    But LA totally got the better deal in this. Cammi is asking alot of money and now LA is going to get another strong prospect.

    A+++++ DL

  • lunchboxap my name is also anthony

    anthony,
    i dont get your joke

    but anyways
    i hope myers slips to 12

  • LB

    this sucks…Cammi is a proven top 6 forward in this league and we don’t even get an established Dman for him. You guys that don’t like Cammi have never provided any good reasons…and will regret this trade!

  • Anonymous

    Not sure how i feel about this one yet. Jury’s still out. I wanted Cammi traded. Was hoping for a young NHL d-man. So we basically traded Cammi and the 28th pick for the 12 pick. I hope DL’s able to nab their man, or even flip it again for a higher pick….guess we’ll wait and see…

  • TeamHasHoles

    He was well on his way to being the Captain of the Kings and he was going to be a point a game guy when healthy… thus a POINT-A-GAME Leader.

    It’s not good value… I hope we get a stud with #12. We’d better! I KNOW what Cammalleri can do.

  • 28 KINGS

    I think Cammi’s value around here was a bit overrated. It’s obvious DL wanted to grab someone in the top 15 and made the deal.

  • Kevco

    Sorry anti Anthony fans but I like his joke. And I like the trade. No doubt Cammi will have a great year next year in Calgary, but that doesn’t mean he would have had a great year here. Good luck to him, but we’ve got some great young guys coming along.

  • JD A

    I just wrote a long comment and it got erased via submission error somehow. So now all I have to say is… Good
    Trade..
    Not!
    It’s great that we now hold the 2th and 12th but what the hell. Why didn’t we get the 12th and a player for Cammi. One of our top forwards and our leading scorer from two seasons ago.
    Now the ducks have two first rounders too! WTF
    This whole trade scares me. Well I’m going to dinner and saying my prayers.

  • king & king

    this is a stupid trade. why do you trade two first round pick to get one first round. you only move up 5 spot to get the pick why don’t Dean trade the second round pick with the 17th overall to get the 12 pick overall.

    A slight overpayment in the upgrade in picks… I WAS hoping for at least a defenseman to go with it…

  • DellaNooch

    We got the 12th pick in this promising draft, hopefully Tyler Myers, Calgary got a point a game guy for one season, everyone needs to remember Cammy is UFA after next season, without an extention in place, he was going to the open market…I’ll miss Cammy dispite all the haters, but this is an okay trade…I wish we got a little more in return, but if we get our guy, I’ll be stoked

  • Chewy Rocky Horror

    I can’t wait to hear all the bitching and moaning once he scores 30 goals next to Iginla.

    Horrible trade. 12th overall pick for 20-30 goal score in his prime.

    You may be right, but do you want this guy for 5-6 million a year because that is what he is going to be asking for after this year.

  • anti cammy convert

    Cammy was not happy here and would not have resigned. It seemed as though he was not a good fit with the other younger players.I used to think he was “THE MAN”. So why all the talk in the league about trading a high value asset.Answer he must have been some sort of “cancer” for the team! Deano is no Idiot and neither is Sutter. Thats why we had to package him with some picks. We keep him and he doesnt resign in’09′or we free up some $ for Kopi, Sully, Jack or Bernier. IMO great move.

  • mrk

    I feel that we could have gotten more for Cammi. Like him or not, you have to admit that he shows great potential for being a great leader and he’s proven his scoring ability, and like I’ve said before, I’d rather have somebody shoot the puck on a team that is real shy on shooting the puck. This guy Toelbert(#12) though sounds like someone we desperately need for this team. I think what DL was aiming for is some room for the salary cap. Rich did say that we’re on the hook w/ Cloutier if he’s bought out. Or did I misinterpret that?

  • Starlight

    I’m disappointed in how little we got for him, really. We should have gotten a player on top of what we got, I’d say.

    I hope Teubert is really worth it, sounds to me like Calgary and particularly Anaheim got the better deals…

  • dave

    don’t you guys get it! the kings need defense in a bad way…scoring wasn’t a proplem for the kings…and since cammy was most likely go to walk away from the kings after the season was over…it was best to move him now and grab another d-man in this draft…smart move on DL’s part.
