King General Manager Dave Taylor said Wednesday the team has talked to the New York Rangers about trading Kevin Stevens for former King Luc Robitaille, but it is far from a done deal despite a recent report by the New York Daily News. "We've had discussions about a [Stevens-for-Robitaille] trade going back for a while," said Taylor, who played with Robitaille with the Kings from 1986-94. "But I wouldn't say it's close. We haven't talked over the last few weeks."

Stevens, who is from nearby Brockton, Mass., was traded to the Bruins by the Pittsburgh Penguins before last season but never got on track in his hometown.

No news was good news for Kevin Stevens, who spent most of Saturday wondering if he would be suspended after the NHL reviewed his blindside punch of Ottawa's Lance Pitlick Wednesday. After hearing nothing from the league, Stevens correctly assumed he would not be suspended. An NHL official told the Kings that Brian Burke, senior vice president, had looked at the tape and saw no reason to impose a suspension. Stevens may still be fined. Stevens couldn't understand the suspense.
