Kings Quotes: Kopitar wasn’t injured, Richard’s on his injury, does Scuderi or Voynov get a deal first

  • John Hoven of  Mayor’s Manor: Kings Anze Kopitar didn’t appear to be injured.

    “There is not going to be any surgery necessary. In fact, I just talked to Chris (Kingsley, Kings head trainer) and our doctor. I can actually get rid of the knee brace too. So, I’m getting back to no discomfort and good strength in my knee. I should be fine. And in regards to being injured during the playoffs, there was really no significant injuries that I suffered. It was normal, just banged up  a little bit, a few bumps and bruises. That’s about it.”

  • John Hoven of Mayor’s Manor: Kings Mike Richards on his injury in the Western Conference Final:

    “Like I said, they scored on their chances that they got. It is frustrating just sitting there, especially with a concussion because you never know – with the way you feel. You think you feel good. Then, I went out and tried to skate and you don’t feel well. I think that’s the most frustrating part of it. Because you think you can play and then you start doing activities and realize you’re not only putting the team at risk, but you’re putting yourself at risk too. So, what’s frustrating the most is that you can’t do anything about it to help the team.”

  • John Hoven of Mayor’s Manor: Kings GM Dean Lombardi on whether it’s more important to sign UFA Rob Scuderi or RFA Slava Voynov first.

    “Kind of chicken and egg, isn’t it?  And part of that too, what you have to factor into that, there’s at least a difference between an unrestricted free agent and a restricted, right? So that enters into who you prioritize also. I don’t have a problem with that.  You can say, looking at it as a player, I do this, but there’s also the issue of a guy with seniority and he’s putting in more years, probably deserves consideration, not only morally because he has seniority, but also the agreement dictates that you probably have to move quicker because at least the other guys you have rights to.  So, it’s hard to answer your question, but trust me, these last two, three months when I saw what was happening here, and then losing Willie Mitchell, it’s – I’ve talked about having chemistry projects in the back room before, well we’ve taken this to a nuclear science now in terms of how you put these equations together.  I’m not disagreeing with what you’re saying, but I don’t think it’s cut as black and white as that.  It’s really hard, unless you guys want another really long, hour long answer, we just better probably leave it at that.”

LA Kings Update: Kopitar and Mitchell’s knee injuries, Lombardi not interested in trading Bernier

  • Helene Elliott via twitter: Kings GM Dean Lombardi said the prognosis made on Anze Kopitar’s knee in Sweden was basically right, 2-3 weeks recovery is expected.
  • Helene Elliott via twitter: Lombardi said it’s not easy to put a time-frame on Willie Mitchell’s knee injury. It’s not structural. He has stopped skating.
  • Dennis Bernstein via twitter: GMs have spoken to each other throughout the lockout, and Lombardi says that he doesn’t expect a rush of deals before the season starts.
  • John Hoven via twitter: Lombardi confirms that he is not interested in trading Jonathan Bernier anytime soon. He’s ‘Too valuable right now.”
  • John Hoven of Mayors Manor: Lombardi on possibility of a Bernier trade:

    “I don’t think that’s feasible at all right now. He’s an important part of this team. Let’s face it, our guys in the minors aren’t ready for that role. And that’s an important role. Like Darryl [Sutter] says, with all these games back-to-back and stuff – hey, a number two starter in baseball is pretty important and that’s the way a goaltender is. (So), I don’t see how that’s possible. He’s too important to us.”

    Lombardi on what to say to a guy who has let it be known that he wouldn’t mind getting out, but who you need right now:

    “Be a pro. There’s a system in place. It’s called the Collective Bargaining Agreement. At some point players – (after a pause) that’s the way it is. Obviously, if the right thing is there for the team, you look at it. But, you can’t be responding to this without the number one focus being on the team and he’s too important to the team. Unless something hits us that’s really going to help this team, it’s not feasible. Now, there’s a time limit on that, it’s called the CBA – where you don’t have that choice as a General Manager anymore and you do what’s best. But, that’s the system.”

Injury notes involving: Hall, Ovechkin, Khabibulin, Walker, Backstrom, Kopitar and Quick

  • Josh Wingrove via twitter: Taylor Hall is getting stitches to a cut above his eye after he tripped on the stairs and banged heads with Jordan Eberle.
  • Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: Dynamo Moscow of the KHL say that Alex Ovechkin has left for the Capitals early as he’s nursing a minor injury according to SovSport.
  • Dan Tencer via twitter: Oilers Nikolai Khabibulin said that he’s hopeful to be ready for the start of the season. He still needs see an improvement, so there is no guarantees.
  • Anthony SanFilippo via twitter: Flyers Matt Walker is still suffering from a bad back and likely won’t pass his physical. He could be looking at time on the LTIR.
  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom’s status for the start of the season remains uncertain. On Dec. 26th he crashed awkwardly into the boards, injuring his neck. GM George McPhee said he can’t update the situation until the CBA is ratified.

    “There are some things we can talk about, some things we can’t, and we can’t talk about the fitness or health of any players until training camp,” McPhee said Tuesday. “I’d be happy then.”

    If Backstrom isn’t ready to start the season, the Capitals won’t have pay his contract since he was injured during the lockout.

  • Helene Elliott of the LA Times: It’s all but certain the Kings will be without Anze Kopitar to start the season due to a sprained right MCL. He’ll undergo more tests when he arrives in LA. GM Dean Lombardi estimated 2 or 3 weeks, though these types of injuries can take longer to heal. Goalie Jonathan Quick had back surgery in August and is expected to be ready for the start of the season.

Injury notes: Kopitar, Poti, Ennis, Meszaros and Briere

9:55 AM:

  • David Pagnotta via twitter: Kristian Huselius announced on AIK’s website that he’ll be retiring due to continuous hip issues. He only played in 5 games this season. Huselius said,

    “It has become worse and worse every game I played. So I have taken the decision to stop with hockey completely.”

9:00 AM:

  • Helene Elliott via twitter: Kings Anze Kopitar’s initial diagnosis of Grade 2 MCL sprain was accurate. Technically the Kings could suspend Kopitar and Willie Mitchell as they got hurt during the lockout and can’t start the season. GM Lombardi said he would talk to the higher-ups about it, though may not pursue it.
  • Stephen Whyno via twitter: Capitals Tom Poti is pain free and “pretty confident” that he’ll be cleared to take part in training camp.
  • Kevin Snow via twitter: Sabres Tyler Ennis said that he’s 100% and not bothered by the shoulder injury he sustained in Switzerland.
  • Tim Panaccio via twitter: If Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros is not able to start the season, they are in big trouble. Meszaros said: ”Sometimes, I am really sore and I can’t push off. I’m still weak [in heel]. It’s a matter of time before I get my strength back”
  • Randy Miller via twitter: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren on Daniel Briere’s wrist injury: ”Danny Briere is a little bit of a concern. We’ll get the information on that over the next few days.”

Wings-Leafs 2013 WC rumor … Panthers talking to Versteeg and Garrison … Kopitar leaves game … Green to LTIR … Umberger has concussion symptoms

  • Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News: It’s expected that the NHL will announce the site of next year’s Winter Classic during the All-Star weekend. Rumor is they’ll be announcing a Red Wings – Maple Leafs match-up in Detroit. Wings owner Mike Ilitch may want it at the Tigers Stadium. Michigan Stadium holds 110,000 plus. Officially 104,172 attended The Big House (Michigan Stadium) to see the Wolverines and Spartans set the record for most people at a hockey game. Unofficially they figured the number was closer to 113,000. They don’t sell beer at college football games at The Big House.
  • Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinel: Panthers GM Dale Tallon has said they are already working on contract extensions for Kris Versteeg and Jason Garrison. Talks have begun but nothing is imminent. They haven’t talked in weeks, but they have got things rolling.
  • Dan Arritt of ESPN Los Angeles: Kings center Anze Kopitar left last night’s game with an upper body injury. He was checked head-first into the boards by Stars forward Brenden Morrow in the 3rd period. Coach Sutter said he just had a bloody nose and will be fine.
  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: The Capitals have put Mike Green on the LTIR. February 1st is the earliest he’ll be able to return. The Caps recalled forward Cody Eakin to take Green’s spot on the 23 man roster.
  • Josh Rimer via twitter: Red Wings GM Ken Holland on Nicklas Lidstrom not being named to the All-Star game: “Lidstrom wanted a few days off during the break & he’s looking forward to a few days off to rest the batteries.”
  • Sean Fitz-Gerald via twitter: Jonas Gustavsson will make his 5th consecutive start for the Maple Leafs tonight in Buffalo. Coach Ron Wilson is not sure if James Reimer will play this weekend.

Schenn, Bailey and Selanne re-sign with their teams … Doughty and Turris still without deals

  • TSN: The Maple Leafs have re-signed RFA defenseman Luke Schenn to a 5 year deal. Bob McKenzie via twitter: The 5 year deal is for $3.6 million per season, $18 million total.
  • Helene Elliott of the LA Times: Drew Doughty is not expected to report to the Kings training camp today as they still haven’t come to terms.

    “We’re committed to being engaged in discussions and we’re more than willing to talk,” Meehan said by phone Thursday. “I think the next step is for the Kings to respond to our correspondence.”

    The Kings don’t want to pay Doughty more than Anze Kopitar’s $6.8 million. The Kings may have gone higher on a longer term, but Doughty wants a shorter term and more money.

  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: McKenzie thinks the next 24 hours for Doughty and the Kings are critical. “This may, and I said may, be perilously close to going off rails.”
  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: As of last night, there has been no movement/dialogue in the 24 hours on Kyle Turris and the Phoenix Coyotes, doesn’t look like anything will be resolved any time soon.
