[They] did bring back Doan's close friend, center Antoine Vermette, re-signed defenseman Zbynek Michalek, signed forwards Brad Richardson and Steve Downie and traded for defenseman Nicklas Grossman. With more room in the budget, it is clear that ownership has loosened the purse strings a bit in an effort to avoid a repeat of last season's collapse.
"We made a lot of moves this summer, and all of them were for legitimate, really good NHL players," Doan said. "I think it is everyone's goal again to put ourselves in a position where we can see good things happening. There's no question we're going to have to get back to that old pack mentality where everybody is chipping in. We need some young guys to step up, and we need some old guys to step up, but you look at Calgary and how they turned it around, and it gives you hope."
Doan said he has no plans to waive his no-move clause and request a trade in the final year of his contract. He also said he wants to keep playing beyond this year.
"I always want to approach it that way until I know I'm done," he said. "I'd like to have a good year. If I feel I can still help the team and they still want me, we can go from there."

From the box score:
via Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider,
Brad Richardson had an appendectomy last night, according to Darryl Sutter, and Richardson will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time. That’s the bad news for the Kings. The good news is that Jeff Carter seems ready to play, and Richardson likely would have been scratched from the lineup anyway. Andrei Loktionov has been called up from the AHL as an extra forward.
The main event was Kyle Clifford vs Sheldon Brookbank.

Andrew Alberts hit on Brad Richardson last night. Alberts received five for boarding and a game.
Will the NHL take further action?
