Kings Links: Loktionov Bolts

Plus AEG sale questions, and catching up with Kopitar on Al-Jazeera.

Kings News

The Kings are in wait-and-see mode with Lokti's Russian journey, but also could suspend his contract. [LA Kings Insider]

The Predators suspended Radulov's contract when he left for the KHL back in 2008, as you may recall -- retaining his NHL rights while trying to convince him to come back.

Loktionov reportedly signed with Severstal, but the team is refusing to comment. Hmm. [Severinform.ru]

Is Loktionov unhappy with the Kings, then? I don't know how he feels personally, but surely Larionov would like his protege to get a better shot elsewhere. LA has locked in all their centers.

In more uplifting news, it's engraving time in Montreal for Stanley. [Keeper of the Cup]

Luc Robitaille savored his day with the Cup along with his mom. Aww. [Los Angeles Times]

A video clip of Nick Nickson's call of the first goal in Game 6. Woo-hooo! [Kings Vision]

AEG Sale

Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the Kings and the lucrative Staples Center arena, should have a pricetag of at least $5 billion.

Why is AEG being sold now, when they're doing so well? What does it mean for the city? [LA Daily News]

The richest man in Los Angeles is interested in snapping AEG up. Let the countless suitor articles begin!

Even with the sale, Leiweke could be sticking around. Here's his interview with Pollstar, and another interview with Venues Today.

...Please stay? Please?

Catching up with Kopitar

I never thought I'd be linking to a clip from Al Jazeera on a hockey blog, but here's a feature on Kopi training in Slovenia. Stick tap to the Mayor for the find.

I'll take all the Kopi coverage we can get.
