    Default We actually have some trade-able assets; WHO should we trade them for?"

    Jake Muzzin, straight-up, for Wayne Simmonds? (OK, just my idea, and it'll probably get slammed 4 it,
    but please suggest something else).

    or

    Forbort for _______?

    Forbort and Muzzin for _____________?

    Dustin Brown for ____________?

    Brown/Muzzin for _____________? (DB might just be moveable after his comeback year, and this is the time to do it, if possible, IMO.)

    I don't know other teams' assets as well as lots of folks on this board, so please feel free to suggest alternatives.
    I suggested WS because of his speed/versatility, but there may be better alternatives I don't know about).

    I suggest that you don't trade away any players who have just played some of the best hockey of their careers. You reward success with support, not punishment.

    You must mean Muzzin.

    And disregard that not only are they aging, but that for multiple seasons prior they under-performed while playing under essentially the same system?

    There's a few that should be traded while their value is high. And, imo, they should be traded for prospect and/or picks so that the rebuild/re-tool can really begin.

    The Kings window doesn't really close until after the 2020 season. Now is not the time you start scrapping it for parts.

    Trading away a player is punishment?!?!? Who knew?!?!

    Someone must have been taking a class in "family loyalty 101" from professor Dean Lombardi.

    .....this was ll before Deano had his "come to Jesus" moment and realized that players are commodities and you can't treat them like your children......it's a business.

    Say what?

    That window slammed shut and was painted over four years ago.

    It's over. Dead and gone.

    They need to invest heavily in the future before they kill that too, and by telling themselves that they still think they can win now they are only harming themselves.

    Move whatever you can to get this team faster.
    Move whatever you can to get some skilled offense.

    All this, however, will take years to complete to where the Kings can compete as a contender.


    I am very curious as to how Blake will do things this off season. It will be a real "tell" to see if Blake will continue that patchwork mediocrity, or if he will begin to make the required changes to meet the NHL speed / skill game.
