Jim Rutherford pretty much confirming that Ray Whitney is prepared to hit free agency: http://blogs.newsobserver.com/canes/...likely-to-sign

It is possible for Lombardi to make a pitch and submit an offer to Whitney, seeing how he had a deal set in place to acquire him and was willing to sign Whitney to a one-year extension (Whitney was intent on getting two-years).

He'd be a welcomed addition in the top six, in addition to the Kings signing one of the top names, whether it be Kovalchuk or Marleau. Although for that to happen, the Kings would likely have to find a new home for Justin Williams and/or Jarret Stoll.

Imagine this top nine:
Kovalchuk-Kopitar-Brown
Smyth-Schenn-Whitney
Richardson-Handzus-Simmonds

Speed, skill, grit, all covered in every line.
