That leaves the prospect of a trade the only likley scenario. Even if the Kings were to acquire a player for non-roster assets, couldn't they jusy waive someone when the trade is made?
The only way this makes sense is if they are calling up Loki for Monday and since Sturm was never assigned he can be added after the trade deadline and it doesn't count as a call up. That would still leave them three call ups with Sturm and Loki already in LA. (Loki could replaced with some one else but I would hope it was him.)
