    Lou firebombing the entire isles present and future before quiting and then signing a 1 day contract with the devils is the real fantasy here

    You donít think adding Vilardi, Tavares, and possibly someone like Tkachuk(in Toffoli + 1st trade) makes us a legit Cup contender?

    You deal Toffoli and Martinez to make the room, and maybe even Pearson.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Maybe the Kings talk to the Isles and see if they would be willing to do a sign and trade for Tavares,if he decides to go UFA.Of course,the Isles have Uncle Lou at the helm,so I think Tavares ends up signing with the Isles.If not,then the Kings could see what it would take to do a sign and trade with the Kings.My guess,it would be the Kings 1st round pick(20th) this year,Toffoli,and one of the Kings top rookie defense man.

    Tavares stays with the Isls. He is a franchise type player and only an idiot would trade him away.

    Looks like they'll need me and my $5 salary to fill out the bottom 6.

    Rolling only 2 lines again seems like a great way forward.
    Mix in some holes in Defense too.....and well..... Welcome Tavares!

    Pretty optimistic to think that a package built around Toffoli is going to get you either a top 5 pick or John Tavares.

    Toff's value is at an all time low. You'd have to make it Kempe. As for prospects, the Kings only have 2 with any trade value (Vilardi and Clague) and they're both untouchable or else I quite.

    Would Tavares take free takeout coupons for taco Bell in lieu of a huge paycheck?

    It's the only way we could afford him.

    Depends on how many goals the unicorn on Kopitar's left gets.
