According to a team source, though, the Kings are not in a position to make an imminent trade for a player at either end of the rink and the team is insistent on allowing its own players to work out any kinks it may have in the early part of the season.
The Kings received bad news early on this year when veteran defensemen Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene went down with injuries.
Lombardi has spoken with the likes of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres, but talks seemed to have cooled.
Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier is among Los Angeles' top tradable assets, though a deal involving the young netminder likely won't occur until closer to the April 3 trade deadline, at the earliest.
Bernier requested to be traded last season, and while he'd still like to be moved and given the opportunity to become a No.1 goalie for some club, he knows he has to remain patient.
