LA's chances of competing for the cup are slim with their roster. I think Ziggy may be unhappy with the direction LA's management is going (read: fiscal responsiblity #1 priority).
Well, Ziggy found his own limelight last season when the police came to his house. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that his issues are with LA law enforcement, prosecutors and media as much as anything that the Kings are doing.

Also, it's hard to say that the Kings are headed towards fiscal responsibility when they sign 2 35+ veterans in the final days of June. Besides, as I recall, the teams that spent a lot in the UFA market last season were nowhere to be found when the SC Finals were played. Beyond making the stupid decision of qualifying two players who didn't even practice with the team last season and committing over $10M to do so, exactly what were the Kings supposed to do before the UFA deadline?
