    I'm sure there will be plenty of due diligence on any player they check into. Simmonds and Doughty concerns prior were a long time ago now. I'd doubt anyone would consider them the same now as they were then. Still Simmonds won't be cheap no matter what. I'd guess there's going to be more concern about if our back end will hold up in february/march hockey considering the forward corps will get a shot with Carter coming back.

    All of our good players are playing well except Muzzin who is inconsistent. Putting him back with Doughty should help. We don't need to make any trades at all. A rental at the deadline? That's fine. But most of our questionable players are young and should get better as the season rolls on. Shore will end up on the 4th line (or maybe out of the lineup) when Carter returns. Other than another minor deal along the lines of a Jokinen or Mitchell, I think we're done.

    I think adding a "Carter"-type player to our current 23-man roster before the trade deadline at the end of February should be our #1 priority..

    Strong chance that will happen.
    Easiest player addition Blake will ever do.

    There is absolutely no way Phi trades Simmonds. He is a HUGE fan favorite there. They would riot.

    And going by that lineup it looks like you got both Wayne Simmonds and Zdeno Chara for the low, low price of Nic Dowd, Oscar Fantenberg, and draft picks.

    So how many easy installments is that going to take if we call right now before the special limited time offer expires?

    I still think the major trades will be at the draft. (Muzzin or Marty, [if there will be takers for] Brown and/or Gabby, and finally, possibly Carter)
    As far as trades now...small ones maybe. Wouldn't surprise me if Anderoff or Cliffy go. McDammit seems to be totally handling that role and playing D pretty well.

    With the addition of Jokinen and Mitchell, and the emergence of McDammit, some of the tenured players have not only been made redundant, but replaced with players better suited to their roles. The bottom 6 is far better not only because Jokinen and Mitchell are made for those roles (and make the team faster), but having #56 means you don't need a tough guy in those roles either. The Kings are able to go with skill/speed over a heavy hand.
