Folks, this is what I'm afraid of......

In actual Kings news… Brad Richardson was the Kings’ only restricted free agent eligible to file for salary arbitration, and he did so today. The Kings and Richardson are still allowed to reach agreement on a contract, but if they don’t, an arbitration hearing will be held sometime between July 20-Aug. 5 in Toronto. Richardson had a cap hit of $587,500 last season.

IIRC, Richardson only filed the arbitration last summer because Lombardi was ignoring Richardson's contract. Why? Because Lombardi was busy during free agency with the Kovalchuk situation.

Now, I have no idea who Lombardi intends to be "busy with" during the upcoming 2011 free agent period, but he'd be wise to clear his desk of stuff while he still has the opportunity to do so.
