Friedman on Kings, trades: ‘I think they’re looking’

Further changes may be in store for the Los Angeles Kings.

The team fired its head coach in early November, and made the Tanner Pearson-Carl Hagelin swap with the Pittsburgh Penguins mid-month.

They may not be done.

Elliotte Friedman had a Friday morning radio hit on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960, and the Insider was asked if he thought “we could be seeing some pretty major changes in L.A. pretty soon.”

“I think there could be. I think they’re looking,” said Friedman. “That was a tough one last night. You lose on a power play with a couple of minutes left. That’s a killer.

“I think there’s a willingness to do things. I thought they were going to wait for awhile. They made the coaching change, they made the one trade, and I think their plan was to wait a bit longer. I just don’t think they’re liking what they’re seeing.

“I mean, you need two to tango, right guys. But I think they’re willing to be a trade partner. You just have to find someone to dance with.”

The Kings are 4-4-0 in their last eight starts, and at 9-15-1 sit last in the Pacific Division with 19 points.
