The article is mostly about the draft, but here are the 2 points of interest
Jason Allison and Adam Deadmarsh will not be given qualifying offers to stay with the team and will become unrestricted free agents Thursday. Whether King fans will even notice their absence remains to be seen, since neither has played in more than a year because of injuries, Allison's whiplash and Deadmarsh's post-concussion syndrome.
Palffy, who made $7 million last season, has turned down a three-year deal worth more than $18 million.
The Kings, meanwhile, are still nowhere close to signing Ziggy Palffy, their marquee player, and he could become an unrestricted free agent Thursday. But the Kings also are in payroll-cutting mode, according to General Manager Dave Taylor.
