Dean Lombardi Interview Highlights (Doughty Contract, Penner, Team Imp Interviews Up)

Quote:
– Within the past few days, the Kings have made a “major” offer to Drew Doughty’s agent. Lombardi has made two trips to Toronto — location of the office of Don Meehan’s, Doughty’s agent — within the past four weeks, and the Kings would like to get a deal done before the draft, if possible. Lombardi said he is certainly aware of the risk of an offer sheet to Doughty but is not overly concerned.

– The Kings are still in the market for a top-level forward, either through free agency or trade. Lombardi said that even if it was guaranteed that Dustin Penner would have a big season, statistically, the Kings would still seek outside help to improve their scoring numbers, both 5-and-5 and on the power play.

– Penner, Lombardi said, has been dedicated to working hard so far this summer, and Lombardi expressed optimism.

– Anze Kopitar is making great progress from his recovery from ankle surgery, Lombardi said, as is Justin Williams from his shoulder surgery. Willie Mitchell and Jonathan Quick also had minor medical procedures but will be ready for the start of training camp.

Though it's easy to be cynical about them, I still love reading Lombardi interviews. He might ramble and spin things but I'm still very interested in what he has to say.

Hopefully a deal with Doughty can be worked out soon, it'd certainly brighten my day.

Outstanding, that should give us something to bicker over till the draft hits.

"Major" would imply a long term deal.

Major should mean like 10+ years. I think.


And why do i feel like Jussi Jokinen will be a King on July 1st.


He will help the powerplay as well as 5 on 5 maybe with Kopitar.


I hate the off-season

I know offer sheets don't happen often, but this thought crossed my mind.

At what point in-terms of cap hit does DL not match? I would think if it got much beyond $7M he would at least consider it.

The second he doesn't match a sheet for Doughty he's finished as a GM. I've always leaned toward a DL supporter but if that happens I want him out of the ****ing house.

I could see somebody offering Doughty the cap max and long term just to put the screws to DL. Match and the team's salary structure gets screwed. Don't match and Doughty goes to another team when he should be a king for life. Either way, that's the contract that has to get done by July 1.
