It is a fine morning, Insiders. Jesse Cohen and I have 17 minutes of audio goodness for you in which we discuss the Manchester Monarchs’ run and identify players from this year’s team that have an opportunity to play in Los Angeles next year. We also cover Kings off-season news in advance of the NHL’s trade and free agency period and discuss how Mike Richards will affect the club’s plans heading forward. Give it a listen:
During the podcast, we discussed Michael Mersch’s injury while the Monarchs were still playing and no update had been provided. Since then, I posted a story that included an update in his status. As noted in the comments section of yesterday’s Justin Williams evaluation, personal duties will keep me away from the blog for the better part of today. Thank you for understanding.
