Does anyone have a sleeper that you think will stick with the team this year?

I'm hoping for Nolan on offense and Voynov on defense.

Nolan would be interesting. I liked what I saw out of him when I watched the Monarchs last season.

Voynov for sure. At least a nine game stint. I mean, he was one of the best defensemen in the AHL last year. Yes he still needs to improve on defense, but he's good enough to make the team.

On offense, for me, there's three guys. Nolan, King (yes, Dwight King), and Loktionov. Kozun needs to spend another year in Manch, was way too inconsistent last year.

Good post GoKingsGoo, but switch Richie and Lewis. Murray likes Lewis at center, he said something about him and Loki playing only center this summer when a reporter asked after the Richards deal.

Unless there is an injury I don't see Loktionov making the club. Kings have 4 centers in Kopitar, Richards, Stoll and Lews and Richardson can play center too.

Holy **** I hate this idea of Lokti as a 4th liner. Summer end already so he can go to Manch and shut this dumb idea down.

Exactly. The Kings won't let him be the 4th line center, it's not good for him....

Though he has spent two seasons in Manchester due to injuries he has only played 29 and 34 games respectively and he is only 21 years old.

Some of us believe, which is probably going to happen, is when Stoll becomes a UFA, Kings won't re-sign him and slide Loki into that 3rd line role. That gives him a full year in Manchester.

It may depend on how Stoll does this season, but I think he will re-sign with the Kings for 2+ years. Loktionov is only 21 and he isn't strong enough for a full NHL season yet. Let's see if Loktionov can finish an AHL season without getting hurt.

Stoll loves LA and the Kings appear to be on the rise, I could see him re-signing for a discount.

Yeah Lombardi likes Stoll, he seems like a nice guy...one of the few Kings who lives here FULL TIME and of course has hot girlfriends from time to time. Perfect LA dude....Like a choir boy version of Avery

He tooks Richards out to dinner and was a the press conference and does charity work. Kings seem like they like him representing the team.

Exactly. They also had him in Kansas City this past week with Bailey to promote the preseason game there. He does more press for the Kings at this point than any of the other guys.

I hope Stoll resigns. I don't mind the kids taking over eventually, but right now Stoll's the better option if we want to remain as competitive as possible in the immediate future.

Wait.. you want him to resign or re-sign? I'm pretty sure he already resigned his 2nd line centering role!

I seriously don't get it. We're in no position to need to rush anyone. Lokti doesn't need to be thrust into 4th line minutes. Stoll will likely be brought back for next year. Again, Lokti doesn't need 4th line minutes. Maybe people will listen to my ****ing idea of moving him to LW in the AHL and letting him learn the position.

Have no fear, I'm sure Terry Murray, Ron Hextall and Dean Lombardi are mulling over your post right now.

Peter Harrold is showing up on the Devils roster on the Devils website. Was he a UFA?

Not sure. There hasn't been any news about it. Usually you can look on an official teams site and look up any player from around the league and people get confused but he's actually on the roster. Not sure if it's a glitch or not.

Per @renhockey, free agent defenseman Peter Harrold signs a 1-year, 2-way deal with New Jersey worth $550,000. #LAKings

Dunno his credibility, but looks like he's your guys property now.

Looks like a AHL signing. We have a million 7th defenseman. Quick run down anyone?

I'm amazed that such a fanclub even exists. Furthermore, that some of you guys are actually a fan.

I don't know how much more Stoll hatin' I can take from this guy. He simply just doesn't get it.

Basically just a Utility guy. We used him as a 7th defensemen and a 13th forward at times, can play 4th line minutes or 5-6 pairing minutes. Wouldn't expect too much out of him, like you said AHL signing. I don't think I've ever seen him stand out in a game either positively or negatively.
