from Lisa Dillman of the LA Times,
Burke could find out about Niedermayer’s status today, as to whether he will play next season or retire. “His wife had a baby yesterday,” Burke said. “I’m pretty sure talking to me is not high on his list of things to do.”
Then there’s the other veteran defenseman in Southern California, captain Rob Blake. Kings’ GM Dean Lombardi says he already has met with the 38-year-old Blake and will have additional discussions with him this week.
Blake will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, as will another former Kings’ defenseman, Brad Stuart, who was sent to the Stanley Cup champion Red Wings at the trade deadline in February.
The Kings can’t say whether they would make a run at Stuart yet because of tampering rules, but he was considered a good fit in the dressing room.
