Contract Extension Getting Closer For Anze Kopitar

via Darren Dreger tweets,

Good news for Kings fans. An early morning source says progress made on Kopitar contract last night. Not done, but inching closer...

The mood around the Kopitar negotiations late yesterday afternoon wasn't good. Patience running out. Something changed last night.

I have always thought Kopitar was overrated - at least among the group of guys I talk to.  He’s been a 30 goal scorer twice, but people put him up there with some of the greatest scorers in the game. 

If I’m LA I sign him for 5 years, because he’s 28 and has played a looooot of games.  Give him a 5 game contract, and hopefully he can continue to be a 25-28 goal scorer for another 3 years.
