I do know for a fact that MC had returned to socal this past off season and went surfing, of course that doesn't mean he wanted to remain a King or anything
but it does speak to him liking the area enough to want to be here.
Oh, and I also seem to remember that he was rumored to have been lobbying to stay a King before he was low balled by DL.
I was left with the feeling at the time that DL did what he and other GM's do in negotiating and that is they offer a ridiculously low offer and expect the player to explain why they deserve more and after that they begin the negotiations (like JMFJ etc). Not saying its a fact, just a supposition.
Not really. There are lots of players who spend their summers here. As an example, Sundin spent his summers in LA and he certainly had little to no interest in ever being a King.
