That was a cheap hit by Malkin. He has been out for half a year and passed physicals with LA, SJ and Wash and a hard one according to him in Vancouver.

Kyper is wrong a fair amount of the time and nobody else has reported this - good news for Kings fans but nothing to trust fully yet

**** yes!!! Good news for LA!!!

Yes, it's an injury risk, but we Kings fans pretty much expect that, right?

Glad to have Mitchell though, because, if he IS healthy, he's a SOLID addition to this team!!!

WOOOOOO!!!

You guys are getting a great defensive player in Mitchell, you may not like him as much during the season but he's a monster in the playoff. Not sure about his health...

Playoffs? Is that the little 2-week annoyance we had in April that interupted our early tee-times?

Well worth the injury risk, at the very least he gives extra development time to some of the prospects. Good job, DL.

Nice. The Kings were probably the only 2 year contract offered.

What number does he wear? Give him #4!


Now that Willie signed, can Kovalchuk be next?

Great signing, not worried about his health. It's time to take a risk. If he gets hurt, we'll have to eat the deal. But it's better to go for it and hope for good health than not go for it at all.

Well boys, the team is improved from last season as Mitchell is much better than O'Donnell. As long as he stays healthy--and once Greene is back--I think we are looking at one of the better defenses in the league to go along with a Quick/Bernier tandem. If that is a bit much to say, I don't think I'm wrong to say that the Kings have the best defense in the Pacific Division.

Looking at the cap space available, the choice between the risk that Mitchell is versus doing nothing is an easy choice.

If he's healthy, he's a guy that is signed on July 1st. Much better player than Sutton so kudos to Lombardi for getting this done.
