The Case Against Patrick O'Sullivan

He's 23 and has one full NHL season.

One full NHL season where his team finished last in the west, no less. If I were Lombardi, I'd probably stress that point quite a bit (and hope that Sully doesn't come back with "Well whose fault was that?!").

I hear his dad is a dick too.

Score another breaking news bit to Sharkspage:

A well placed source has informed Sharkspage that veteran defenseman Alexei Semenov has signed with the San Jose Sharks.... This signing is likely the precursor to another roster move, as the Sharks remain over the salary cap.

Semenov is famous for scoring one of Doug Weight's rare goals, which would have gone 6 feet wide of the net if Semenov's boot didn't get "in the way".

Is the "the human pylon" Semenov?

Yes, though it might be a generous title. We're not 100% sure he's human.

so basically we take the kings first line and some spare change? matt moulson over alex burrows? hmm. Boyle would be awesome on the 4th line, but why not stick him with Jannick Hansen and Michael Grabner/Ted Purcell to get some background scoring too. Still, comparing the Canucks to the Kings seems a bit off. The Kings were unlucky not to win the Stamkos sweepstakes whereas the Nucks barely missed out on the playoffs.

Your comment is one post off, Johan, but we'll let it slide.

The Kings were unlucky not to win the Stamkos sweepstakes whereas the Nucks barely missed out on the playoffs.

Sure, there are differences, but I don't know if either team has improved this offseason, so if splitting hairs like this makes you feel better (you missed the playoffs even more than we did), more power to you.

But 9th place or 15th place, it's still the same number of playoff games.
