If it meant automatically winning the cup I would have traded Schenn and Simmonds for Denis Tsygurov.

In a New York minute.
I still have my doubts that Schenn can match Mike Richards' ceiling as a player. Simmonds, while a good, young RW, is a replaceable (and was replaced well). Finding center's the caliber of Richards isn't easy.

Center >> Wing
And the Cup window is now for LA, not in 5 years when Schenn is physically able (if that ever happens)

I was in Hawaii on vacation when I happened to go to my room briefly and turned on my TV and saw that Mike Richards was traded. I sat up and thought...oh please be to the Kings. When they confirmed it was indeed to the Kings, I knew Schenn would be part of the deal. Then they mentioned Simmonds. My first thought? HELL YES WE GOT MIKE RICHARDS!!! That event alone made that Hawaii trip the best one I've ever had. A few weeks later, I was in Vegas and I placed a bet on the Kings to win it all. A year later, I was at Game 3 of the SCF and then attended the parade and rally shortly after. Would I make the trade again? Surely, you jest! I'd drive Simmonds and Schenn to the airport. I never missed either guy a single second because I turned the page as soon as Richards became a King.

We won the Cup with Richards on the team. I have been tired of waiting for 30 years and finally saw it happen. So yes I would do the trade again. The goal is the Cup. Now had we already won some Cups then I may still be disappointed because I see a lot of good in both SImmonds and Schenn and neither have an injury history which still concerns me about Richards some.
But like I said. We finally won the Cup so yes.
