I know team is playing good right now and they can challenge for the cup this year, but i think now is the time to talk about big trades that can happen at the end of a season.
I think it will be a perfect time to move some of the top talent and get great deals for them. Kopitar is in the prime right now. He has maybe 1 or 2 more years, then he will be only getting worse. So now his value is the highest!! Many other teams would kill for a player of his caliber and we should get a younger 1C player with a better karizma so we could move more merchandise. And he could be a lot more offence oriented (see the next move of Quick). Win for us and probably win for Kopi if he goes to more attack oriented team.
Next in line...Quick. He still has a high value as a goalie, but we can see, that any other goalkeeper we put in the net does a great job (Bernier, Scrivens). So the key is defence, not a goalie. We can have a cheaper goalie and move Quick. Plus Quick injuries are becoming problematic.
If we move Kopitar + Quick, we can get a younger 1C guy with a bigger name + 1 stay at home defenceman, and a darn good one too to play with Doughty.
Brown would be interesting to trade aswell but i don't think anyone would pay as much as LA Kings did for him, so the trade value is not very good. He should go to 2nd line (or Williams).
Now we only need a killer winger for the first line and we would be set for many years.
What do you think?
