Brownie's contract come up in 2014, as does our shutdown D Mitchell and Greene. I'm sure Lombardi has the big picture in mind.

My point is that you can't go around throwing multi-year contracts at people every year. The Kings are in good position to find good veterans who want to play for a winner for a year or two. That's the ideal situation.
I agree with this for the most part especially if we're handcuffing ourselves with a 20 min a game forward vs. a 30 min a game defenseman like Suter. But did you mean Scuderi? Mitchell already re-signed.
