What about the controversial free agents or 2nd tier guys? Ex-Kings, aging vets, you get the picture. Saying you want the Kings to sign a Gaborik, Hossa or Bouwmeester is easy but I started to think about the other guys. What about Jaromir Jagr? If he gets out of that Russian deal do you offer him money, is he too old, or is he a done deal back to Pittsburgh? Bertuzzi. Not the same player he once was, you can expect 40-50 points, no longer dominates physically but can still make plays, doesn't cost a lot and would look good on the 2nd line. Cammy. Is the bridge completely burned or does Dean offer him a deal? Kings need goals but his size and salary demands seem like a very poor fit for LA, obviously. Rob Blake. UFA dman once again, obviously a poor fit but do you bring him back to "mentor" Jack Johnson again. Mike Grier. A little too old but fits the Murray system and he's played in SJ. Sammy Pahlsson. Great 3rd line center, shut down guy. Lappy, seems like a good fit, 4th line center. John Madden? Sergei Zubov? Very interesting defensemen especially if Jack Johnson is traded. Do you give him the retirement deal? Matt Schneider? 40 years old, give him a 1 year deal? Phillipe Boucher or Mattias Ohlund?
