Kings Made Their Pitch To Richards

from Rich Hammond at LAKings.com,

Members of the Kings’ front office staged a one-day invasion of Toronto with a singular mission: win over Brad Richards, the prime target in this summer’s free-agent market.

The NHL’s signing period for unrestricted free agents started at 9 a.m. Pacific time Friday, and the Kings wasted no time in making their substantial pitch to Richards—a seven-time 20-goal scorer—in the office of his agent, Pat Morris.

In a meeting that lasted more than two hours, the Kings made their offer to Richards. The presentation had a multi-media aspect as well, as the Kings showed Richards a video that included greetings from Kobe Bryant and other local athletes and celebrities.

If LA lands Richards they’re going to be loaded up front. I hope he ends up in the East…or Detroit.

Kopitar, Richards, and Richards down the middle. That’s damn good.
