The Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks have won the past two Stanley Cups, but other than that, they don't have much in common. The Blackhawks seem to lose key players after their Stanley Cup runs, whereas the Kings manage to keep most of their team together.
With that said, Kings general manager Dean Lombardi has still been busy early on in the offseason. A number of players have benefited from trades and signings, while a few may be worse off than they were last season.
Here are some of the winners and losers of the Kings' offseason thus far.
