    Interesting read.
    Regarding Jagr or Kovalchuck I'd say no thanks.
    And regarding Quick's backup, I'd think Campbell gets the nod from the Reign before we go back with Zatkoff.

    Sell, Sell, Sell and we will see you in 2023. By then even Gaborik and Brown will be gone. Kopitar will be the only surviving King at the end of his run.

    So his idea of a projected lineup shows a trade of Muzzin & Kempe to Tampa for Jonathan Drouin.
    Might well be a decent trade for the Kings. I would prefer not losing Kempe for the speed element with skill is lacking with this team. Maybe Muzzin and some draft picks might be better and keep Kempe and not add Sam Gagner which he also proposes.

    Yea, not much the Kings can do to improve from without. It's all gonna be from within for a while.

    Unless there is some sort of miracle magic with the expansion draft and entry draft deal that rids them of Brown, Gabby, or dare I say even Quick.

    Not a fan of Drouin for Muzz and Kempe. Drouin is an RFA, a whiner who was suspended by Yzerman and demanded a trade after he was sent down for poor production, and rumored to have a sense of entitlement. Adrian has a couple more cheap years and the RFA year left, not to mention he has himself just started to grow into his frame. To do that trade I would need to be very much in love with Drouin's skillset (which I am not, since he has never really been the guy everyone expected him to be after juniors), feel that the rumors surrounding him are not significant (which I don't, as Tampa is a well run org), and get him to agree in principle at least to a contract so I know I can sign him.

    Trading for a RFA you don't know you can sign by giving up our one high end futures talent is hopefully not the way forward that Blake is envisioning.
