Kukla's Korner Hockey

Marian Gaborik made Dean Lombardi and the LA Kings winners of this year’s NHL Trade Deadline.
Now, the Kings are one game away from making Gaborik a champion.
Playing on his third team in two seasons, Gaborik started the year alternating turns between underwhelming play and injuries on an also-ran club in Columbus.
By March, his team was no sure thing to make the playoffs, and Gaborik seemed to be playing out the string on the final year of a six-year contract given up on by his twice-former team.
At 32, he was a declining asset, but one with name cachet.
