doubt Gagne will be missed at all, although hopefully this forces Dean to make a trade for a winger.
Means Loki has some more games to ry and do something i guess
More likely, Loktionov gets his chance as a winger again.
Tomorrow the Kings would have had to reduce the roster by one spot. Which means either Loktionov or Voinov were likely candidates sent down. Now, with Gagne expected to be out, he can be put on IR, and the Kings roster is kept intact.
Simon Gagne, who didn’t play in the third period, got “a little banged up” early in the game, according to coach Darryl Sutter. Sutter didn’t elaborate, other than to say that Gagne would be evaluated again tomorrow before the Kings’ flight to Chicago.
What's the situation with both Moller and Holloway, since so many have brought them up. I know they both bolted across the pond, but are they completely out of being resigned or what?
The Kings still own the Rights to both guys(in the NHL). But there is pretty much no way they can play for the Kings this season.
I am pretty sure it would take something drastic like voiding their contracts with the Euro team. Which would cause some legal recourse or them forfeiting a lot of money due to contract breech.
That's why Dean/fans were pissed when Bud Holloway bolted. Bud could have stepped into the Bottom six and top six(sometimes). There is no way Bud could put up worse numbers than Lewis/Richardson/Clifford/Hunter.
