    Default COUNTDOWN: 17 Minutes until The Kings lose Kevin Gravel

    __ minutes left until bye bye, KevinG.


    Unless I missed it, we have yet to sign Gravel, who becomes a free-agent sometime on August 15th.

    Are there problems behind-the-scenes?

    What the heck is going on with Gravel and DL?

    I'd rather see us trade his rights than see him just walk & we get zip.

    Gravel could be signed by another NHL team if he's not signed by the Kings before August 15th (I believe that's the cut off date).

    It takes two to tango and deal his rights, though. There's a cap on rookie contracts, and what team will deal anything of substance to acquire the negotiating rights of a player who sounds like he is either a) demanding too much despite being a rookie b) wanting to test the market?

    As of now, the Kings still have his rights. I hope they sign him, as he's still high on my prospect rankings list (I'm actually working on it now).

    The Mayor tweeted back on June 11th that Gravel signed. https://twitter.com/mayorNHL/status/476847204414414848

    That's an AHL-only contract with Manchester. Gravel must be signed to a two-way deal by the Kings or he can be signed by another NHL club.

    Perhaps one must initially travel slower on the Gravel road.

    An AHL contract not a NHL entry level contract. The Kings did the same thing with David Steckel. But back then the Kings would have gotten a comp pick (2nd) if they didn't sign him. The year gave the Kings a chance to decide.

    I believe in Gravel's case it might be a test thing. My guess is due to DL's desire for college players to turn pro after their Jr year and Gravel went back for his Sr year. I remember DL was pissed that Boyle went back for his Sr year at BC.

    Down to 8 days now.

    What's up?

    So is Gravel a greedy SOB, or what?

    If he walks, can he be punished, as was done to the terrible, evil Bud Holloway?

    Hell, Holloway, played 2 seasons in the AHL, and continued to develop (for a while) in Sweden (and on the Swedes' dime, too).
    Yet, Holloway gets smashed like a bug.

    And Gravel gets a pass to walk free, and $ign with whomever he want$?

    Aaaaaaarrrrrrggggghh!!!!

    Maybe a little trade pkg to the NYR if we can't sign Gravel---

    Gravel, Kyle Clifford and Jordan Nolan to NYR for Zuccarello + pick.
