Los Angeles send Kevin Westgarth to Carolina
Carolina send Anthony Stewart + 4th/13 and 6rd/14 pick to Los Angeles.

Good luck Westy to Carolina.

Love Westy, but the Canes got fleeced here.

Is Stewart a head case?

The other one is a bit of a dumb cunt for shushing the LA fans after drawing a fight during their asskicking in the playoffs.

Well it's hopefully a good sign that Carolina kinda overpaid for him. Should mean they intend to play him.

Kings could have Stewart, Fraser, King, Nolan and Clifford on their roster. Not too shabby.

The 'Canes said yesterday they were looking for some 4th line toughness. I thought with them being the 'Canes, it'd be someone like Tom Kostopoulos. Good pickup.

I thought Stewart was a fairly highly touted as a prospect of pretty fair value, so it seems they gave up a fair bit for Westgarth here which as mentioned above is hopefully a good thing in that they'll play him. Should be a bit more competition for him in the East as well. This will take Carolina out of contention for the most pathetic team in the league so it's a great move in my opinion. Florida's got Parros, Winnipeg are pretty Pathetic with Thorburn being probably the closest thing they have to a tough guy. That is plenty compared to Washington who've got nothing outside of Hendricks. Tampa got nothing, Keith Aulie I suppose, so Carolina with this move go from among the most pathetic in the league to amongst the toughest in their division.

Not only is the NHL totally fucked it's fans are out to lunch now as well

PR: Scrappy guys but no heavyweight now. Clifford is the best of that group, the others are more grinders and power forwards who will have a couple fights each at best.

Carolina surely overpaid, 2 prospects basically + Anthony Stewart (trying to catch lightning in a bottle and rejuvenate him).

This is great though as BUF play Carolina in Game #2 of the season in BUF, so Scott vs Westgarth becomes a lock!! Welcome to the EAST KW.

Aulie, Angelitis, Labrie, and Crombeen are in Tampa camp.

And don't forget Mark Stuart on Winnipeg. He's certainly willing.

H28,

Compared to who? Even teams that have a heavy would get their shit kicked by that Kings roster, after winning the initial fight.

This is what the NHL is trying to force on teams, now.

He WAS, about 10 years ago. Now, just an underachieving power forward.

I think he was more of a "salary dump" the Kings agreed to take. Carolina waived Stewart twice last year, and nobody took him.

So now we've got Parros and Westgarth in the Southeast. Very nice.

I have been harping to my co-worker all week how Carolina is normally the most boring team in the league. They needed this big time.

The East is going to be great this year. Not too many teams that are automatic no watch's.

Great news. I might watch a few games this year. Somebody wised up and realized they had to protect the Staal brohers.
