Messing with chemistry?

For the last while, we’ve been hearing from everyone in the Kings organization — Dean Lombardi, Terry Murray, players — that the chemistry in the locker room is a team strength, and that to make a trade might risk tampering with that chemistry. Well, the Kings added two players and sent one away on Wednesday — three, if you count Moller and Cliche — so the obvious question was, does this run the risk of altering team chemistry down the stretch? Murray fielded the question…

MURRAY: “When you have good chemistry on your team, and you add like this, then the quality starts to show. I think that’s one of the things that I have a lot of confidence with this group that’s in there right now, that they’re going to accept the new players coming in and bring them in to be a part of the Los Angeles Kings and make them feel very welcome. The quality of the individuals that we’re adding, in Halpern and Modin, and everything that I hear about who they are and what they’re made of, as far as personalities and strong people, it will have an impact with our group that’s already in there, and I think it’s going to bring it together to be an even more solid group.”
