LA Kings Roundtable on player contracts, roster changes

Just in time for the weekend – part five of the recent roundtable discussion on the Los Angeles Kings is now available!

Joining me on the panel were Dennis Bernstein of The 4th Period, Jon Moncrief of the Examiner, Dave Joseph of ESPN and several others.

The group was pulled together by the guys over at KingsCast and in this segment we talk in-depth about which players will be back next year, a certain player that has privately said he’s willing to come back at a discounted rate and roster changes that need to take place for the team to become Stanley Cup contenders. Plus, some lively debate on Jarret Stoll, Ryan Smyth, Michal Handzus, Willie Mitchell, Brad Richardson, Trevor Lewis and more!

If you haven’t been keeping up with the whole series, here’s a recap:

Part one of the roundtable featured discussion on Drew Doughty – click here to watch now.

Part two featured discussion on the power play and prospects – click here to watch now.

Part three had lots of talk on free agent signings, trade rumors, Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Bernier, Dustin Penner and much more – click here to watch now.

Part four went up earlier this week and was mainly about coaching and Johnson vs. Doughty – click here to watch now.

More videos will be released by KingsCast in the weeks to come.
