I think Lombardi adheres strictly to the policy (and good for him) that unestablished players need to pay their dues and do the program the team lays out. It's good for their growth, shows the team that's investing in you proper respect, and shows everyone in the organization commitment worthy of investment. Established guys who paid dues can have their way a little bit.
If Dean lets some unestablished guy get away with not doing things right, it not only corrodes the system, it's also a slap in the face to the guys who did it right and paid their dues.
Holloway is done as a King. Moller on the other hand simply is the winger version of Loktionov. When Sutter became coach, guys like Nolan and King became the new prototypical Kings player. Hickey is a casualty of that too...the org chose Muzzin over him.
