We're going to have a lot better idea once this season's over of where we stand and what the acquisition of someone like Kovalchuk would likely do to this team. If the Kings are on the doorstep of contention, a star player like that would probably push them in the door. It wouldn't be a "savior" situation at all, it would be more like a "last piece of the puzzle". We'll see.
I agree 100 % with that.

I do think the Kings will be ready to take on Kovy this off-season. The multi-million dollar question is, for how much?

Sounds about right. He's going to want 8+ easy, and the way the years are being thrown around, 10 years to stretch out the cap hit is probable.

While I don't have trouble believing TM watches plenty of tape, what I don't understand is why it took him about 2 months to realize that there are as many Kings' players in the slot as there are mourners in a graveyard on a wet Sunday.

Unfortunately, since just about every team is going to be offering Kovy roughly the same money, the most likely scenario is he takes that money and goes to the team he thinks gives him the best chance to win. I think the question we all need to ask is: Why would he think that this is that team? I'm honestly interested in what people think about that question because everybody talks about UFAs coming here as if it's a done deal. Last year Hossa turned us down because he thought Chicago would be the better team. I think a lot more has to happen on the ice and in the dressing room before a player picks us as a first choice on the open market.

I'm getting tired of hearing how young the "core" is and how much cap space is available. Just get some legit scoring help for this team. Just do your job Lombardi and stop congratulating yourself.
We all know Lombardi gets his marching orders from AEG, and is why he's not getting fired anytime soon. There was those rumors that he could have made a trade that "guaranteed" they made the playoffs during the 2008 draft, and we all know there are no guarantees. I think everyone likes Drew Doughty better than the mystery man.

Furthermore, IF guys like Kopi and Brown are learning from best character guys, and they truly are learning from some of the best as you say then they should be able to deal with the addition of Kovy or Gabby should they not? Maybe we should add more pressure on them by trading away some of our talent to facilitate their leadership progress.
I have no problem with that as long as it is the right player for the right price. Patience pays. Last year the Kings didn't give up Bernier in order to get Smyth (that was the asking price if I remember correctly), they draft Schenn and still get their man in Smyth for a guy they picked up on waivers and they got to dump a salary.

I am not expecting any moves just for the sake of making the playoffs this season unless the cost is minimal.
