    So we have the best team we have ever had. We have won 2 cups in 3 years. We are young, have a good farm, and built to win more because of our cap, however we should ruin all that so we can get a SUPERSTAR for people who aren't fans of hockey.

    Look, the problem with your thinking is hockey is actually a team sport. Cheer on the team, not the players.

    If you want to be a fan of players that are bigger than the sport or team, go watch the NBA and download the Lebron app.


    BTW, I love the NBA and watch a lot of different sports, but they are different in terms of fanbase and marketing.

    How do you know? You've just gutted the team acquiring Crosby....such trades make NO sense actually but I suppose it is fun to speculate.

    I think media would go crazy if a guy like Crosby would come here for Kopitar. And i think Kopitar would finaly get a chance to play for a offensive minded team and just unlish hell there. Win - win. Voynov still has value but he is not showing anything near 4 million so trade would do good for him too.

    Since when is THIS what we as fans give two ****s about? Either you work for AEG or you're not actually a fan of this hockey team.

    Oh and by the way, the last time I checked Kopitar has 2 Cups to Crosby's 1, and winning means a hell of a lot more to any growing fanbase than MVP trophies. Just ask the Lakers.

    It's a fun exercise to try and figure out what the price would be for Crosby (I'm thinking Kopi and Voynov aren't going to get it done) and beyond that how he would mix with the Kings. I just can't imagine a situation where it's going to be a good mix. I think you would end up where you have a guy who is going to be winning the Hart trophy year after year, but the team itself is going to struggle.

    Just for fun, I think it'd take Kopitar + Muzzin + Toffoli to land Crosby. Maybe even more.
