There is one player that I would pursue aggressively if the Kings can't retain Willie Mitchell, and that's Tim Gleason.
I've been saying we should re-sign Mitchell for awhile now. He's vastly underrated because he just does his job and he often goes unnoticed.

I also agree about Gleason if we can't sign Mitchell, but my thinking is that Gleason will be too expensive.
