It is official.

The L.A. Kings have traded Jack Johnson and a 1st rounder to Columbus Blue Jackets for Jeff Carter.

Mr. Lombardi, you are a hypocrite.

I just talked to Surly and he is pissed off! He is in disbelief. He will tell you about that later, if and when he calms down. I believe he called it an “ass raping” but I will leave it to him to tell you more.

As for me, well, I’m increasingly convinced a good friend of mine named Marc is right and Lombardi is who Marc has long suspected Dean to be – a shill.
