Practice notes

Talked to Blake, Crawford and Thornton. Will have those interviews coming. Lombardi was not at the practice facility after practice. The beat writers are going to have a conference call with him at some point today. Blake said he probably will be ready to play by the weekend, but not Thursday. So expect the Kings to bring up a defenseman in the next 24 hours or so.

Move may be coming

So it’s past noon and the Kings haven’t announced a move, as I’m sure you guys know. I don’t expect a late flurry here, but I do hear there is something in the works that has yet to be finalized. I’m at the practice facility and will have more when I get it.

Deadline day

So the trading deadline is at noon Pacific. The Kings practice at 1 p.m. I’m going to bring my computer to Toyota Sports Center. Hopefully the temperamental wireless will be working and I’ll be able to post some updates from there. There will be a period around 11 a.m. in which I will be in transit. At some point, I’ll have interviews with Dean Lombardi, any key players traded and any key players obtained.

Trade deadline talk

It’s a little surprising that there hasn’t been a move yet today. Here’s my list of players in the organization most likely and least likely to be traded by tomorrow’s noon deadline.

Who do you most want to see traded?
