from the LA Times,
The good news is that the Kings are a good fit for many of the top league’s top free agents, from forwards Scott Gomez, Chris Drury and Daniel Briere to defensemen Sheldon Souray and Roman Hamrlik.
And the bad news? The Kings are not alone. The best players available are also right for a majority of teams in the league.
“When you have the number of holes that we’ve got we’re going to have some Wall Street moments, ‘Buy-Sell, Buy-Sell, Buy-Sell,’ ” Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi said.
“Ideally, when you enter free agency,” he added, “you don’t have a lot of holes and you get free agents who can add to your core not build your core.”
Unfortunately for the Kings, their core remains a work in progress.
Burke on Niedermayer and Selanne…
“The only thing that would change that would be if one of them were to tell me something now and I don’t anticipate that happening.”
more (reg. req.) on the Kings, not much more on the Ducks…
