That would be ideal. Mitchell's uncertainty has me thinking that we may see Regehr back with the Kings next season. The only way Ellerby gets brought back is on a two-way contract, and even if he does get re-signed, he'll still be 8th on the depth chart for dmen. He's still a raw product who could turn the corner, but he needs a ton of work on his play in his own end.

I figure by around 2014 that Forbort may get a sniff at the NHL and may make one of the left handed dmen expendable in a couple years. The great thing is that the Kings have their right side of the blueline covered with Doughty, Voynov and Greene. I expect Lombardi to lock up Voynov and get Greene's deal extended next year.
