Good morning, and happy Friday, Insiders. There are a lot of topics to discuss right now: Mike and Mike (Richards and Reilly), the Monarchs, and Los Angeles’ approach to trades and the upcoming draft. If you stick around for 15 minutes, you’ll be all up to date:
A side note: While stopping by to say hello to a few familiar faces in the Kings’ front office yesterday, Dean Lombardi was either in the process of (or had just immediately finished) calling up every player on the Monarchs’ Calder Cup team to congratulate them. That’s neat! Enjoy your Friday, Insiders.
