Kings have interest in Thibault and Burke

The Los Angeles Time is reporting the LA Kings have sent calls to all 30 teams making it known there looking for a veteran goaltender. With free-agent pickup Dan Cloutier turning out to be a bust for the Los Angeles Kings, according to the report the team might be interested in bringing in Sean Burke and there is also speculation they have interest in trading for Penguins backup goaltender Jocelyn Thibault. Burke, 39, has a 318-331-101 record over 17 NHL seasons.

The Buzzontheburgh’s Final Word
A trade with Pittsburgh would be difficult because another goalie would have to come the other way. The Penguins have strong interest in defesenman Lubor Visnovsky so maybe a Malone – Thibault for Visnovsky is being discussed.

Don’t bet on it.
