Why Did Dean Lombardi Trade For Ben Bishop?

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Maik,

In a curious but intriguing move that may turn the Western Conference playoff race upside-down, the Los Angeles Kings acquired the No. 1 available goaltender on the NHL trade market Sunday, landing Ben Bishop from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The primary question surrounded the timing of the deal: Why did the Kings wait until now and not make the move weeks ago?

“Preferably, I would have done this deal two weeks ago,” answered Kings’ general manager Dean Lombardi, “but this is just the way trade-deadline deals seem to work.”

Less than a day before completing the trade for Bishop, the Kings finally got their starting goaltender and two-time Stanley Cup champion, Jonathan Quick, back in the lineup after a 59-game injury absence.

Bob Miller Will Meet With The Kings To Discuss “His Ability And Availability To Call Games”

from Tom Hoffarth of the Los Angeles Daily News,

Kings Hockey Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller, at his West Hills home since Wednesday after he was released from the hospital for treatment of a mild stroke, said Friday he plans to meet soon with team officials to discuss how to move forward with his ability and availability to call games.

Miller, 78, missed the recent NHL All-Star Weekend at Staples Center when he showed up Saturday for a Fox Sports West live broadcast but was bothered by the fact he continued to slur some of his words. His wife, Judy, who was with him, also noticed the right side of his face did not look well.

Taken to County USC Medical Center by ambulance, Miller was then moved to USC Keck Medical Facility in downtown L.A., where a stent was inserted and a procedure was done to clean up a corroded artery that had plaque buildup....

“I had been out the night before, having some wine and a bite to eat, and noticed I was slurring some words, but I thought a good night’s sleep would be all I needed,” Miller said Friday morning. “I got up Saturday morning, got dressed, drove to Staples Center, and Judy said, ‘You don’t look good.’ When I got to the TV set to work, they didn’t want me to go on camera.”
