Jason Lewis: Kings Get Gaborik. Who Has Two Thumbs and Was Wrong About the Deadline?

I theorized that the deadline could be quiet for the Kings and Dean Lombardi. But with about an hour and a half left before the deadline the Kings and Jackets took center stage for another deadline deal that ultimately proved me wrong.

LA Kings Matt Frattin fights Tyler Myers after a legal hit

This is one element that I don't like about the NHL. Whenever someone is hit with a nice crisp, hard, legal bone jarring check, there has to be a fight. This doesn’t even appear to be that hard of a check. Whatever happened to taking a number and hitting them later in the game? It’s called taking the license plate of the truck that hit you.  I think this is one instance...
