Report: 4-year deal close between Matt Greene, Kings

by Jun 23, 1:07 PM

Unlike most Stanley Cup winning teams, the Los Angeles Kings will avoid a significant offseason facelift with just four pieces from their roster without a deal. 

And it appears that number is down to three. 

Defenseman Matt Greene is reportedly close to re-signing with the Kings, per Lisa Dillman of The Los Angeles Times and TSN's Darren Dreger has since reported that the deal will be of the long-term variety. 

General manager Dean Lombardi has roughly $13 million to spend on his three regular contributors without a contract, according to capgeek. Should he convince Green in putting pen to paper, Marian Gaborik, Willie Mitchell and Dwight Kings will remain the only outstanding players from the Kings' Stanley Cup Final roster.
