This is an off-season where I may actually be more excited about re-signing players.

If there was ever a sign then trade in the NHL, let it be Stoll.

Again, LA's success in the Playoffs changed all that, and now I'll gladly welcome an extension, but 2-3 months ago at least half of the kings board had written him off....there's no denying that.
That's not exactly a ringing endorsement. And I am a Kings fan. A great deal of the fans here do not appeciate Stoll's value to the team.

That's on them, not Stoll.

Here's the problem with judging anyone on the 2011/12 Kings team based on the regular season - the whole team pretty much sucked during the first 3/4 of it.

It wasn't until March or so that the real team showed up.

I gotta base my judgements on the last 25% of the season and the playoffs. Therefore I hope this team comes back intact, Stoll and Fraser included.

Two more good bottom 6 centers will not make it to the market, but no surprise. I'd assume each is taking a bit of a discount to stay, Stoll especially. It just shows team loyalty though, to take less to stay on the team you just won the Cup with, so that's always good. There will be a lot of disappointed fans, myself included, to not see these guys make it to the market when they are re-signed, but it's great for the Kings to keep both of these guys. They were huge parts of the Cup win.

I think Stoll is too close of friends with most of the guys on the team to want to leave. That's the one thing I will say - this Kings team is REALLY close. Even Richards and Carter have fit in immediately. I'm glad Stoll is going to be resigned. Fraser is a great fourth line center, and I welcome him back as well.

I think most of us forget why Lombardi traded for Stoll and Greene.

It wasn't for their stats, number of All-Star appearances, or game breaking qualities. It was because they epitomize the character and qualities of great team mates. They helped Kopi and Brown grow as pros and become team leaders. They show the kids and all the new players what is expected to play for this team and play for each other.

They brought a team culture that Lombardi (and Murray and Sutter) values very highly to our club. The fact that they (and their team mates) were paid off with a Cup is just freaking wonderful.

And Edmonton still suffers from their absence....

From the way Stoll is described by some of the Kings (and management) it seems that he is considered to be one of the leaders on the team, even though he doesn't wear a letter on his sweater.

Fraser is the most important one to re-sign, imo. Not too many veteran 4th line centers out there with 2 Cup rings. Dude plays hard and is a great influence on the younger guys. Supposedly, along with Greene and Stoll, he's one of the leaders in the locker room.

ZERO hockey IQ. The thing he's only consistently good for is offensive zone penalties. Plus 3 years is too long IMO. I would have been fine with 1 yr to see if he can bounce back but no. Also means Lokti might be gone.

Is that why he gets a lot of PK time?

Stanley Cups are expensive.

The Kings kept a good guy. Cheers.

Price is fine but I didn't want him for 3 years. I might be overreacting (okay I am ) but I REALLY was hoping for Stoll to be gone and Lokti to be in next year.
