    Normally, I like to give posters some pretty wide latitude with opinions, but this has me wanting to post some pretty serious WTF-s | hit.

    Is it fair to guess that one of your favorite TV shows is "Keeping Up With The Kardashians"?

    Why do you care so much about what the media thinks? And why do you care about revenue? Any why do you care about attracting more fans?

    Who gives a **** about any of that?

    Not so. Most "great players" want to win. Period. Not to be known and seen simply for being a great player. Winning gets them noticed.

    Au contraire. The Kings' fan base is at an all-time high. not thanks to Gretzky, but thanks to Stanley's two visits. If you haven't noticed, the Kings are at well over 100 consecutive sellouts. Not somethings that happened in Gretzky's tenure here. He sold a lot of jerseys, sure...but I see more Brown, Kopitar and Quick jerseys than I do Gretzky jerseys now, and then.

We have great value in Kopitar. He is great but not really a talker and a media person. Kopitar could bring us a huge name, not just a great player but also a great media guy. I would even go for Crosby with Kopitar and Voynov. I think Penguins would do this deal and it would give them great defense power, and Kings would get Crosby himself. With him we would still be fighting for the cup, but west and La would gain hugely in terms of hockey fan base. And money.
    So, let me see if I have this straight: you're saying to get rid of a key cog in the enormous success the Kings have had the last three years, in trade for a guy who has led his team to one cup 5 years ago, and an early exit from the playoffs in all but one season since then?

    Depending on the intent of your OP, I suggest one of the two following tacks:

    1 - Stop trolling. You're not good at it.

    2 - Leave this stuff to Lombardi. He is orders of magnitude above your skill level at this kind of stuff.
