(the following are my personal observations after a discussion with another Kings die-hard)

1. He seems to think the Kings could ask for an exemption for Norton, based on last night's injury. I think it's kind of a moot point.

2. The Kings have Holland and Muir protected because if they want to make a move and pick up a player, they CERTAINLY have one to throw back.

3. Because Calgary protected Trefilov instead of McLennan, it's obvious they are looking for a goaltender (and will throw Tref back...) and I wonder if Hnilicka is the best bargain on the scrapheap (based on the re-worked contract)

4. Phoenix might look at Jon Sim, who scored two goals against them last night (half joking.)

5. Who would *I* like to see the Kings take a shot at in the waiver draft? (Honestly, not really anyone, but if I am forced to choose

* Buzek, Werenka, Trnka, Heins, Therrien, or Smrek on D
* Olvestad up front
