I have posted this over in the forums too, but some people may not venture into that part of the board, so I felt I would dedicate an actual blog to the news.
Rich Hammond, the most reliable source for legitimate information on the team, has given a couple updates on the status of some of the players on the team.
First, there are two players at the top of the RFA list for the Kings, Patrick O'Sullivan and Jarret Stoll. Although neither have put the pen to paper yet, talks are ongoing with both players. For O'Sullivan, it is still a matter of finding where he fits in compared to what other comparable players are receiving. Basically, Hammond gives the impression that we'll see Stoll signed before Sully, but both will end up signed. A contract with Doughty's agent is also being negotiated and talks with Teubert's agent should start soon.
And Hammond reports that Cloutier has officially been bought out, it just may take a while for the arbitrator to make the announcement. All I have to say about this is, IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!!!!
