Show up for a full season? Is that to much to ask?

Guys get overpaid for great playoffs (see Leino and Ward). Stoll had a nice playoffs, but the Kings can't be getting into a bidding war with some other team for Jarret Stoll, his entire body of work has to be factored in, not just the last 20 games.

If the Kings give Jarret Stoll something like a 4 year, 15 million deal it is not a good move for the hockey club, and the same goes for Penner.

If they want to sign shorter term deals for less money to prove the playoffs wasn't a fluke then I am all for bringing them back, but we can't get into bidding wars if lesser teams start throwing money at them based on these past 20 games.

Never going to happen, that is what the Kings expected when Stoll spent three years on a scoring line and #1 PP and didn't even average 20 goals a season in that span. No one is expecting Stoll to ever be a scorer, but his play this season doesn't warrant him being paid the 3.5 million he made this season. But someone will offer him atleast that, it will be up to him to decide how much money he is willing to leave on the table to come back to the Kings. Same with Penner.
