In case you're keeping score at home, the Kings now are a couple million from the cap ceiling, if you assume -- as I do -- that Brayden Schenn, Kyle Clifford and Jacob Muzzin are making the team. Which puts the likelihood of the Kings even re-entering the conversation about Kovalchuk at about zero.
Teddy Purcell out, Brayden Schenn in.
These are estimates. Your results may vary. Many nice Mitchell videos after the jump:
