On September 8, I wrote the L.A. Kings need a legitimate third line wing to replace Wayne Simmonds.

At the time, I coveted Carolina Hurricanes left wing, Chad LaRose because I was not drinking the Ethan Moreau Kool-Aid and, as I wrote then, I asked if you were. Surly was drinking some of that but, then again, you put almost anything in front of him and he will empty the glass in no time.

I still want this kid.

He is a good fit and a nice complement as a third line wing.

So, I ask that you take a look at that article and read some of the comments, which are interesting in hindsight, and again ask yourself this question – do you want Chad LaRose (9 goals, 10 assists in 34 games this season) or not? And for what?
