Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi season-ending interview (part 2)

Rob Scuderi is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent early next month, and the Kings’ veteran defenseman could go that route if he decides it’s best for him and his family. Scuderi talked last week about finding a comfort zone with the Kings over the last four seasons. He also said when asked about his future with the team:

“I haven’t talked to my agent yet. I have had any time to think about that. I would imagine in the next few days there will be some conversations and short discussions. As a player, this is a place that is certainly a desirable location. It’s got everything you need, for myself and more importantly for my family. The team’s good. I’m comfortable here. It’ll take me a little more time to gain perspective and just relax right now.”

Of the fact that a new contract hasn’t been completed, Scuderi said, “It hasn’t concerned me because I understand there are other things that have happened. I understand the team has other priorities. Bigger than just myself. That’s the way it goes. I’m not offended. I don’t get disrespected by any of that stuff. It’s unfortunate that maybe it could have been taken care of, but it’s not like I’m going to harbor any ill will toward the Kings or the way they’ve done things. That’s just not how I think.”
