Well.... if 80 million/15 years was as far as Lombardi wanted to go, LA fans can console themselves that it would have never happened. 20 million dollars is more than a little bit, and the cap-hit/deal construction would have never been accepted.
The whole idea that Kovy was blown off by Lombardi's questions seems retarded to be honest, and it is more likely planted by the Kings PR-people to make it appear less of a failure not getting it done after all the talk.
Cap-cautiousness or not, if Kovy had gone to LA for 6.666 million per as it ultimately came out for New Jersey, it would have been a splendid deal that would propel LA up there as one of the outright cup-favourites. Now they remain 'only' a dark horse, and that's a bit of a shame considering what a cap/cup-window this season was/is for them.
