Quick Hits: Stoll, Schneider, Gretzky, Komisarek, Gerbe and Leino

  • Lisa Dillman of the LA Times: Kings center Jarrett Stoll was taken to hospital yesterday morning after suffering a seizure according to Kings GM Dean Lombardi.

    “Everything is OK. They’ve run some tests and they still had another one to run,” Lombardi told The Times. “The bottom line is that he’s fine. Now the issue is what caused it.

    “There are a myriad of things that can cause them.”

  • Bill Watters: (regarding his comments yesterday that Cory Schneider wanted out due to off ice issues) Can’t clarify the issues, but led to believe it isn’t booze or drugs.
  • Darren Dreger: Sources saying that MLSE boss Tim Leiweke talk with Wayne Gretzky about joining MLSE. They have put talks on hold for now but plan on revisiting at some point. What Gretzky’s role could be hasn’t been determined.
  • SportsNet Ticker: Maple Leafs Mike Komisarek earned $19 million in 4 years with the Leafs, $120,253.16 per game or $1 million per point.
  • Mike Harrington: Nathan Gerbe’s buyout will cost the Sabres $308,333 for the next two seasons, eliminating his $1.45 million cap hit this year.
  • Mike Harrington: Sabres GM Darcy Regier said the Sabres won’t be buying out Ville Leino. Belief is that he wouldn’t be able to pass a physical, and you can’t buy an injured player out.

State of the Los Angeles Kings: NHL Trade Deadline Edition

Here is the 2nd installment of our expanded NHL Trade Deadline coverage. We’ll be posting team outlooks leading up to trade deadline over the next couple weeks from a variety of contributing writers.

Written by Dennis Bernstein of and can be found on twitter at @DennisTFP

Needs: Nothing but a scorer will do. Although ranked last in offense, Los Angeles is in the top eight in the West due to the stellar work by goaltender Jonathan Quick, the team’s clear cut MVP. With 20 of the Kings final 32 games on the road, their margin for error is miniscule and they must deal for a top six finishing forward in order to qualify for the post season. With the heat on GM Dean Lombardi from ownership to win now, he will likely have to broker a blockbuster along the line of the Mike Richards trade to overcome the lack of production from Dustin Penner and Jarret Stoll, a natural center shuttled to the wing on the second line but unproductive.

In order to bring back a player of that caliber, the Kings will have to deal from their strength, defense and goaltending with Jack Johnson and Jonathan Bernier the assets being offered to the market. While they’d take a producer on either wing, the gaping hole that exists on the left side has not been filled since the departure of Ryan Smyth over the summer. They have over $ 3 million of cap space availability, so to bring in a high priced player for half a season is doable even without a roster player departing. Injured Simon Gagne is not close to being ready and there is increasing talk that he will be landing on Long Term Injured Reserve prior to the deadline for further cap relief. There is some chatter  of interest in New Jersey’s Zach Parise given the Devils reported precarious financial standing but the cost of Dustin Brown and Bernier may only occur if Kings drop out of the top eight in the next month.
