from Dan Arritt of the LA Times,
Every day that O’Sullivan is held out of training camp, his conditioning and development suffer, Lombardi said. As a result, it’s more likely that the team’s fourth-leading scorer from last season won’t be at full strength until early next year.
“We’re not giving him a one-year contract because I might have to write off this season,” Lombardi said during practice Thursday morning.
In fact, Lombardi said he won’t offer anything less than a three-year deal. As far as sending the wrong message to other Kings, several of whom will be restricted free agents after this season, Lombardi said he’s trying to avoid that scenario.
