NHL Radio Replay: Hoven Boldly Predicts Kings Future Plans

Enjoy a free replay of John Hoven on NHL Network Radio, where he joined host Jonathan Davis on the Two Man Advantage to discuss a myriad of Los Angeles Kings related topics – and went so far as making a few bold predictions about upcoming moves and the future of GM Dean Lombardi, as well as defenseman Matt Greene.

One point of clarification before you listen, though. The comment about Slava Voynov was not meant to suggest that bringing him back to the NHL would be an easy one. There still are immigration issues to resolve and a league suspension to deal with. At least in LA, the belief (hope?) has long been that Voynov would be allowed to play in the NHL again once his other issues were adequately resolved, most likely ending with a 20-game suspension before he is allowed to suit up for games again. The real point to be taken from this spot is that Kings management, namely AEG owner Phil Anschutz would no longer block his hockey club from allowing such a move to take place. At this point, the ball is in the court of Voynov and his legal team. They need to somehow find a way to get his papers in order, paving the way for his return to North America.

On the ice, the Kings have largely underperformed this season – and currently trail Anaheim in the Pacific Division standings. There is a strong chance they will miss out on post-season action, let alone win the Cup this year. Thus, there will likely be plenty of off-season work to accomplish in Los Angeles once the NHL regular season wraps up in April.
