Free Agency 2012 (7/1/12)

Nothin' Happenin'... Yet.

I'd call it a frenzy but it's basically a snooze-fest nowadays.

Coverage on NHL Network starting at 9AM PDT Sunday.

Tons of re-signings of late. All the top names are likely to be signed within the first few days or first week of free agency, then there's going to be long lulls in between signings as we monitor CBA negotiations all summer long.

I expect a quiet, uneventful day for the Kings.

If all that happens is we re-sign Penner to a good deal I'll be content.

Anything beyond that and I'll be ecstatic.

Expectations for the Kings: ZILCH.

Maybe Bernier and Loktionov get traded, but that's about it.

Pretty much this. But I'll be interested to see where Suter, Parise and Semin wind up.

I already feel for the poor guys having to do the several hours on air. They'll mostly only have re-signings to talk about and there's only two big names out there. I'm happy the Kings will be quiet. I work from home and usually watch the coverage on July 1, but it being a Sunday I'll be going about my normal weekend day instead.

Kinda curious about Scuderi and why we haven't heard about an extension for him. hmmmm.... If no extension, I'm thinking he's traded back east.

he still has a year left, and i imagine when his contract is over, Lombardi will want to use 1 of the many prospects since it will save 3mill in cap space

Hopefully all in the east. I'm confident that either Parise or Suter will go to Pittsburgh.

Apparently Suter wants to stay in the West(or move to the west, actually)

It's anyone's guess where Parise ends up.

Oh yea, I remember reading that too. Maybe Detroit? Yikes.

This. Maybe a Lokti or Hickey trade, but that's about it.

I'm already content with what we've done.

I'm one of those interested in DOAN. i think we can definitely have an improvement over LEWIS on the 3rd line.

Sutter likes rolling the lines so this as our 3rd makes us very scary
. BROWN // KOPITAR // WILLIAMS
. GAGNEorPENNER // RICHARDS // CARTER
. KING // STOLL // DOAN
. NOLAN // FRASER // LEWIS
esp if penner doesn't resign.. replacing his size/grit/scoring w/ doan would be even be an upgrade. I like the idea of having a cup-hungry vet in the line up.

Would love to land Suter over Parise honestly that would turn our D into an even more feared beast.

Suter
Parise
Penner and/or Doan
Nothing (unless DL can do a "wow, he screwed GM [insert name here] in that trade" trade.

Incredibly bold prediction time: Kings don't sign a single player who wasn't on the Kings last year.


Is it wrong of me to want to see Parise and Suter both go to Det together?

I see us making a couple of things happen over the summer or at least trying to.

I don't see Sunday being a HUGE day for us.

I still think we're going to take a run at Suter, but I expect nothing to happen.

Not really, Mitchell didn't re-sign until February. Williams signed during his final contract year too. Dean has no problem signing players during the season. Scuderi isn't a priority like quick was. Stoll and Fraser were just re-signed in June. Penner could be done over the next few days.

If Scuderi has a solid season and none of the prospects can show they are ready, he will get a new contract offer. He has two cups, he can decide to go back east if he wants.

I'm not all that worried about Parise and Suter both signing with Detroit. Remember, they're not adding to their current team. They're replacing Lidstrom, Brad Stuart and possibly Hudler. Suter is a great #2, but he's not a #1 and he's no Lidstrom. There's going to be a world of pressure on him if he signs there.

Hey - if there's a GDT - should I do a FGOG for Free Agency, too?

Even though I'm not expecting anything major regarding the Kings, I'll be up Sunday just because I do every year haha, just find it interesting to watch for a few hours and see what happens and listen to everything breaking.
