Default Deadline looming...

TSN : FANTASY NEWS - Canada's Sports Leader

The Plan:
The most obvious sellers on the market, the Kings are out of the playoff hunt and have a boatload of unrestricted free agents, some of whom even have value to other teams. The Kings have put together a solid young core, so and deals will be focused on complementing their best young players. With good young NHLers and a handful of fine prospects, the Kings have an exciting young base that should only be better and deeper after the deadline.

Deano meets Blake about being traded...

LOS ANGELES TIMES: reports Kings GM Dean Lombardi is expected to meet with defenceman Rob Blake today to discuss his future with the club. Lombardi recently presented Blake with a list of ten teams that had expressed interest in him. Before the start of the Kings' trip, Lombardi gave Blake a list of 10 teams that had expressed interest in acquiring him before the Feb. 26 trade deadline."There are a lot of things involved in making this decision, and a lot he has to process," Lombardi said from St. Louis before the game against the Blues.

SPECTOR'S NOTE: It's up to Blake to decide if he'll stay or go, and if he'll go where he'll go. He's previously suggested he could waive his NTC if the Kings approached him about it. This report seems to suggest that the Kings might be doing so.
