    The Kings need to get faster. Tafoli simply stinks. He isn't scoring any goals and isn't playing good on the defensive side. Carter hasn't done much since he has come back. Kings need to create cap space and bring in younger players that can skate and be more consistent in scoring goals.

    To be exact, Carter did A LOT since his return, and gave us a big push on the playoff hunt.
    He just doesn't do much in this playoff though.

    Remember when Stoll was the second line center? He did perfectly fine, played the same game, brought the same elements to the team, but was miscast because he was slotted higher than he should have been.

    Toffoli and Pearson are supporting players relied upon to contribute primary offense. It's not really their issue, they are who they are - the Kings need a primary scoring winger or two.

    I be in favor of waiting to see if Lombardi gets a GM job this off-season. If he thinks Lucic was worth Miller, Jones, AND a first round pick, there's not telling what he'd give up for Pearson and/or Toffoli.

    I think if Blake sees Vilardi developing well a Carter trade is not out of the question. Right now though...I'd doubt it.

    Spot on..but it's so strange "that 70's line" was hot for so long. Is it just bad luck or something deeper?

    Perhaps, although considering the team did pretty well without Carter for most of this year (not saying they were world-beaters, but they did stay in the playoff race), if they're going to trade him, now is the time. His stock will never be higher going forward than now. As others have mentioned, better to get rid of a player a year too early than too late.

    I'd be open to trading Carter, but what could he fetch for us? I would have to imagine he'd better get as much as the Flyers got for Mike Richards! I retrospect, losing Simmonds and a first rounder Schenn was a high price for Richards on a huge downhill trend after 2012.

    I'd be shocked if there wasn't a team that wouldn't pony up at least a 1st (or top prospect, or even both!) for Carter. He brings a lot to the table, in addition to Stanley Cup experience. As for losing Simmonds and Schenn, it wasn't cheap, especially for how Richards turned out. But for what Richards brought to the team in 2012 (even in 2014), it was a tiny, tiny price to pay for two Cups. I'd make that trade again every single time!
