Morning reading: camp preparation

With the start of training camp right around the corner, what’s on the mind of coaches? What will be stressed early in camp? Who will play together? Will there be any changes this season? Terry Murray and staff have been mulling these questions, and many others, practically since the end of Game 6 in April. My LAKings.com feature takes a look at the preparation that goes into the start of training camp. Thanks for reading…

Great expectations

As part of the story, Murray gave a hint as to what we might see among the top six, that being a pairing of left winger Simon Gagne and center Mike Richards. That would also put left winger Dustin Penner and center Anze Kopitar together, with two right wingers — Dustin Brown and Justin Williams — as potential fits on either line.
