    Marian Gaborik stands to benefit from Los Angeles Kings overhaul

    With the Los Angeles Kings cleaning house this summer, firing longtime GM Dean Lombardi and coach Darryl Sutter, there are likely to be some personnel and lineup changes going into next season.

Rumors have been swirling about possible buyouts for Dan Girardi and Marc Staal, but those same rumors persisted through the early portion of last spring without ever coming to fruition. Another year of shoddy play from the dynamic duo might have been enough to convince Jeff Gorton to step up, do his job, and move on from the longtime franchise pillars, but the Rangers’ general manager has not yet shown that he is willing to do whatever it takes to make the Rangers great again.
