This was tucked into the bottom of the Kings’ “road report” yesterday, a quote from Terry Murray about Wednesday’s trade deadline…
MURRAY: “We’re trying to put something together here to get a foundation in place with young players. This is the group I expect us to have on Thursday.”
Of course, the flip side of this is that Dean Lombardi makes the trades, not Murray, but obviously they communicate quite a bit.
Also, I have a message in to Dean Lombardi to see what the Kings’ plans are with Oscar Moller, and to confirm that Tom Preissing has been placed on waivers. Just to clarify, being placed on waivers doesn’t take Preissing off the team right now. It’s a procedural thing that can lead to a roster move, so we’ll see what happens over the next 24 hours.
