Danny Markov to LA?

According to a Russian report, maybe. Markov is formerly of the Detroit Red Wings and the Philadelphia Flyers, but has recently been plying his trade for Moscow Dynamo. He has an out-clause that allows him to come back to the NHL without any problem. The article says Markov will make a decision in the next 2 weeks, so we'll wait and see.

Markov isn't that great, but he's pretty tough and he's a left-handed shot, which is what the Kings need. He played with Philadelphia already, so Murray and Lombardi are both familiar with her. Plus he's Russian, and I love Russians. Just think, Alex Frolov will actually have someone to talk to!

Update: Rich Hammond says Markov had a change of heart. Fuck! Moving on...

In the Biblical sense?

Rudy, if the Kings get Markov, you'll be quite happy about it. I was really disappointed when he went to Russia to get his money, instead of sticking with the Wings. He's a solid defenseman who can play the body or play the puck, and doesn't make many mistakes. You could certainly do a lot worse.
