The Kings are looking for some continuity in goal and in the lineup, and while that’s definitely possible, there’s no question the team is in a rebuilding phase.
The Kings have had a difficult time winning games, and it’s no secret the front office is searching for answers on the goaltending front.
There’s been some speculation that the team might move back into goal, but there’s nothing official.
The Sharks also have been linked to a goalies move to LA, but that hasn’t been confirmed by the team.
The Lightning are hoping to add another scoring threat to a defense that has been mired in mediocrity.
Tampa Bay has been in a rebuild for some time now, but it has had some success recently, finishing in the top 10 of the NHL in goals for and against.
But, they’ve also struggled to score, which has led to some speculation they might move into goal.
It’s possible the team will look at a player like Dylan Strome, who’s been a strong presence in the Lightning’s system, but the team also might want to look at the young players in the system like Brayden Point and Dylan Stastny.
The Kings are a team in transition at the moment, and they have a lot of new faces on the roster.
Some of those new faces might not be able to play in the NHL for a while, but they can still contribute to the team, and that could help the Kings make the playoffs.
The team is expected to make a move for one of the two goalies in the playoffs, and could also look at bringing in a veteran like Joe Pavelski.
