As I reported earlier, LA Kings new center Jarrett Stoll still has not yet signed a new contract. A month ago the 2 sides agreed on financial terms. Those terms would be finalized and the contract would be signed once Stoll was back in the country after vacation. A few days ago the agreement was announced by the Kings but the contract has yet to be signed because the 2 sides are in disagreement about how much Stoll will make per season. A source in the Kings front office has told me that Stoll wants a balanced 3.6 million over the next 4 seasons. The Kings want to front load the contract due to salary cap issues. This is a very small speed bump and should be resolved next week and the contract should be signed.
