A well-written piece by Mirtle about the Richards fiasco and Dean Lombardi's completely bullshit cop-out statements after the settlement.

Everyone involved in this case is quick to point out the settlement does not set a precedent because, well, it says so right in the legal language of the agreement.

This is considered a “one off.”

But if you’re wondering why other teams aren’t contesting the deal, perhaps it’s because it effectively gives owners and general managers a powerful trump card to keep players in line.


One step closer to non-guaranteed contracts as much as they say its not a precedent. If the language is so vague, teams are going to try to pull this more and more.

Given the problems that the league has had recently with drug issues, concussions, and guys committing suicide, the league really needed to step in here and work with the Kings to get Richards the help he needs and not let the Kings weasel out of this. However, Anschutz is a big time Bettman guy and the league denies the shit out of any problems or mistakes. So no go. Lombardi is a shithead.

I love my gold Kings hat but I have found myself purposely not wearing it because of the recent shit with Kings. I used to like them. I love Kopitar, but fuck this team now.

Lombardi presenting himself as the victim as a pretty classless, downright sociopathic move.

His ass will be fired after the Kings tank again.

If Lucic had more than next year on his contract Lombardi should already be fired.
