Would Lombardi leave LA for another team? Maybe Philly, but even that would be a long shot. If AEG sells the Kings, then maybe the new owner would want to get his own team together. Lombardi has a lot of time invested with the LA Kings and I don't think he wants to leave what he has built.
Lombardi completely re-built the Kings from the ground up. Even though they were some of the biggest pieces, only 3 roster players were left over (Brown, Quick and Kopitar) from Dave Taylor that just won the Stanley Cup. Burke didn't have much time invested with the Ducks when he left for his "dream" job.
