Especially since the Kings lost Hickey, who likely would have been called up if there's an injury to Doughty, Martinez, or Voynov, there's not really an NHL ready offensive defenseman in case there's an injury.

Again, I'm not exactly advocating Redden in particular, but I think it's silly to rule out a cheap signing for depth purposes because of a reputation (not even because of an attitude). After all, I remember a couple Kings players who had a reputation of being cancerous party boys who did just fine last year.
According to Bob, it was likely to be for less than $1 million on a one year deal.

As for not have an NHL ready recall, I say Andrew Campbell is ready. I'll leave it up to our Manchester folk to say more and respect their input greatly, that's just my belief.

Ugh. If he's that bad, pass. We can buy a pylon at a hardware store for less.
