Sean O'Donnell is a King


Step aside, little ones.

Wow.

More coming, but first let's hear the various sides yell "NOOOOOOOO!!!!" in the comments.

[UPDATE: The OC Register has more:
The conditional pick means that if O’Donnell is traded again before the deadline this season, the Ducks will receive the Kings’ third round pick. If the the Kings keep O’Donnell past the deadline, the Ducks would get nothing in return.
Clever deal. Normally I'd expect Lombardi to turn down deals just to keep his own draft pick, but if he gets offered a 2nd-rounder, would he turn it down?]

Umm, what? Aren't they playing tonight? He actually fits in pretty well.

Earl Sleek said...

Yeah, and actually with Ken Klee in the picture, the loss of O'Donnell might not be that bad. Pronger will just have to babysit someone else (Montador? Huskins? Klee? Some kid?) on a nightly basis.

Maybe nobody has to yell "NOOOOOO!!!" here after all. Except maybe O'Donnell himself.

Leaving a cartoon team for a real team is not a reason to yell "NOOOO"

Earl Sleek said...

Maybe not, but going from defense partner Pronger to defense partner Greene might be.

Nut said...

All I know is he better leave Calvin alone (because he looks like Moe, of course)

Julian said...

Maybe Huskins into the top four? He looks ready to me, but it's always kind of fuzzy through the homer glasses.

Earl Sleek said...

Maybe Huskins into the top four?

Possibly, though it may be more of a stopper position that needs to be filled. It's possible that Beauchemin plays with Pronger, though.

I'm still kind of rooting for Festerling, just based on my NHL 09 Iowa Chops stint.

RudyKelly said...

I imagine the defensive lines will be:

Johnson-Greene
Preissing-O'Donnell
Doughty-Harrold

Also, do you know what this really means? HUSKINS TIME.

It took me a while to realize it meant that he was an actual Los Angeles King.

I thought it was a post praising something great he did out on the ice.

I was talking to our Duck fan receptionist when the Schneider talks were going on and told him that I'd rather have O'Donnell. I disagree Rudy, I don't think Doughty and Harrold play together.

cj said...

I grudgingly learned to like O'Dummy when he was a King because he was often the only one standing up for his teammates. He took alot of punishment, but we were pretty sure he did not have a fully developed central nervous system so I don't think it hurt him much.

RudyKelly said...

You think O'Donnell becomes Doughty's caddie? That could happen, although Harrold and Preissing are a pretty toothless duo.

So a cartoon team with a real Stanley Cup is worse or better than a real team with 40 years of no Stanley Cup? I'm confused. At least he doesn't have to move and can still go surfing.

Itlan said...

From the #4 d-man, to a #1 d-man? He should demand a raise. Or at least demand gifts of virgins and copious amounts of Wild Turkey. God save you, OD. Thanks for not being a retard while your linemate was.

Johnson-Greene
Preissing-O'Donnell
Doughty-Harrold

Don't forget Gauthier, you could throw him out their with Doughty, if you want one goon per "softie." And Harrold slots into the 7th spot he was born to fill.

That had been expected, because they had to drop their salary cap, because they recently signed a multi-million deal with Teemu Selanne.
