Lombardi made this comment to the Canadian Press at the draft today, in regards to the number of goalies available on the market and the Kings’ potential interest:
“There’s still some people I’m interested in but if it’s not there, we’ll do it right and develop our own,” said Kings GM Dean Lombardi. “But I’m not done shopping.”
The only goalie currently on the market, or at least known to be on the market, who would seem to be a fit for the Kings is Manny Fernandez. That’s just my opinion. From what I understand, Risebrough’s asking price was pretty high this weekend, and that’s why you didn’t see the Wild deal Fernandez to someone, as expected. I would still bet against the Kings acquiring a goalie but it’s interesting that Lombardi would publicly say he’s interested.
