Any Kings fans wanna help me out?
I'll admit that my knowledge of the Kings is severely limited, because I just don't see much of them due to playing so late into the night.
Should I be happy about this? Angry? Indifferent?
I'm very confused.
UPDATE: If you're like me and horribly uniformed on Corvo, some stats:
29 years old. 6 feet tall. 205 pounds.
81GP, 14G (11th among D in NHL), 26A (50th), 40points (26th). +16, highest among L.A. d-men. Averaged 19:59 per game, 4th among L.A. d-men.
The scouting reports seemed to indicate he's an offensive-minded d-man.
This is the Chara replacement Muckler was talking about? Seems like a slight upgrade over Pothier.
I feel like Muckler saw everyone else doing something and around 7PM, after he woke up from his daily afternoon nap and warm milk, he said "well shoot, I better do something, huh?". And this is that.
Again though, until 15 minutes ago, when looking at his profile on NHL.com, I wouldn't be able to tell you what Joe Corvo looked like, so really, I don't know what I'm talking about.
UPDATE #2: After reading what Kings fans are saying on the Hockeys Future Forums, I'm not exactly warming up to this deal.
"There isn't a stat for defensive screwups. Corvo would be nearly a league leader. He's soft as a feather."
"He's just a shade better than Andy Elmore." (I assume he means Andy Delmore, who costs about 1/3 what Corvo does)
"they will need to learn to deal with Corvo's defensive mistakes. There will be a lot of them unless he gets paired with Redden, and there's no way that's happening."
"Haha, good riddance! Over 2.5 million for Corvo? Hell no!"
"Peace, take the next flight."
