The Los Angeles Kings have inked Marian Gaborik to a seven-year extension. The financial terms weren't immediately available. Gaborik has a lengthy injury history, so signing him to a seven-year deal is a huge risk for the Kings.
Still, he sparked the Kings' offense after they acquired him from Columbus at the trade deadline and is one of the main reasons they won the Stanley Cup. They might end up regretting this move in a few years, but there's no question that they're a better team going into the 2014-15 campaign with him on board.
I had a feeling that due to the playoff success of this player a big deal would be on the table for him. Does this mean Mike Richards is expendable?
