The Mayor John Hoven @mayorNHL 27m
Obviously no deal made yet... but our sources say the one name heavily discussed by #LAKings mgmt in the last 48 hrs is #Sabres Matt Moulson
I know Hoven is well-known in the LA market and is a member of the PHWA, but I'm not sure if he's a trusted source or not. Something to keep an eye on, I guess
EDIT: They're discussing the same tweet on the Kings' board and no one's completely dismissing it based on who wrote it. Might be legit
I really like Moulson and would not mind him being re signed to be a veteran leader. 5 years 5 million and that puts him 2-3 years of a hopefully being a playoff team transitioning into a contender. That being said, if this is better and we add a nice asset then I would not be opposed. Moulson to the Kings makes a lot of sense.
When we dealt Regehr to LA it was essentially known for about a week it was going to happen. Lombardi isn't a guy that seems to dick around when it comes to trades. If he and his guys want a player and they're discussing going after them they generally pull the trigger and don't let it linger for months and months.
