Talks Broken Off on ‘Dream’ Trade of Sending Hull to Kings
The Kings have had trade talks about acquiring Brett Hull from the St. Louis Blues, Kings General Manager Sam McMaster acknowledged Monday, but he said those discussions have “reached an impasse.”
“We haven’t been able to agree on who we would give up,” McMaster said. “There’ve been discussions since the draft but we’ve gotten nowhere. . . . There are no discussions right now.”
Hull, who has led the NHL in goal-scoring three times, said recently that he would like a chance to play with Wayne Gretzky.
“That’s my dream,” Hull said.
The Blues would reportedly want King defenseman Rob Blake to be part of any deal.
