Fukufuji stuck in Cleveland? DL tried to claim Leighton & may be looking for a Goalie

According to a Chris Foster article in today's LA Times anyway...

Fukufuji was stuck in Cleveland Friday due to weather...

"I don't know what's going on in Cleveland, but just keep piling it on," Lombardi said. "It's been one thing after another. We'll just have to take it. It's to the point where Fuki was all apologetic for being stuck. He thinks it's his fault."

The Kings placed a claim for Michael Leighton but he went to Philly because they're ranked lower...

The Kings may now look to deal for a goaltender. They are unwilling to risk recalling Jason LaBarbera, who would have to clear waivers. Brust has only five NHL starts and Fukufuji has never appeared in an NHL game.

"We're trying a little," General Manager Dean Lombardi said, adding that the team put in a claim for former Ducks minor leaguer Michael Leighton, "but Philly took him. We have been looking, but it just shows you the way the market is even guys in that category are getting picked up."

The article also confirms that Garon will be re-evaluated next Friday and will not require surgery to repair the broken ring finger on his right (catching) hand...

That's a question from an optimist.

The storm here in MO is a mess. I will be without power for 3 more days. The roads are most likely closed around St. Louis and there is no way to get gas. He couldn't get here.
