From Helene's article in the LA Times this morning:
Despite rumors that the Kings were contenders for Iginla, they haven’t really focused on him. It’s General Manager Dean Lombardi’s job to listen to any offer, but acquiring an aging winger who’s a rental player wouldn’t have solved the Kings’ real problem, which is the lack of a beefy defenseman to replace the injured Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell. And Lombardi was not contemplating trading goaltender Jonathan Bernier for Iginla. Bernier is worth more than a rental player, even one as respected as Iginla. With Jonathan Quick still not at last season’s level and a jampacked calendar in this post-lockout schedule, the Kings need Bernier to help keep them in a playoff spot.
