    More like Carter + ?

    Dude, I'm just looking to subtract his salary, I'm not trading him for Tavares.
    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.

    They can't bring in Tavares; he hasn't been with this org. before.

    It's very simple. Trade Carter and Brown. Wont get much for Brown but unlike last year, someone should take him now. Makes the team younger and better. Reduces injury risk. Helps restock prospect pipeline. If JT gets $11m/yr the salaries almost perfectly offset. We still need a lw1 though unless you get a cheap one back for Carter.

    ...and the Kings can still only roll 2 lines.
    The Kings need 4 lines that can play.

    if they gut the team and the coaching staff, yes please. otherwise tough sell. Hi john, your former demigod status has been downgraded to second line center, coach stevens will be more than happy to stifle your creativity and the lady from the progressive commercials will be more famous than you in Los Angeles. No biggie, tho. *dap up* Would you like a Netflix series green-lit? A cannabis dispensary? Or, if you're down to clown, groped by our mascot?

    Not if the top 2 lines account for 250 goals : )

    Maybe the bottom 2 can play reallllly good D while the other guys rest and still chip in for another 20-30 goals.

    In any case, I don't see Tavares coming here. Kings will fill in with lower salary FAs if they go the FA route.

    Considering the Kings situation in terms of cap, roster & coaching staff, Tavares coming to L.A. creates more problems than he solves.

    Per Dredger’s Twitter:

    “Tavares is now focusing on negotiations with the Islanders on an extension. Daily discussion last two weeks.”



    Make of it what you will. Statements like these seem to mean much anyways.

    Lou is going to be 76 years old in October. Doubtful he is still employed by the Islanders by the end of Tavares next deal, and his secret weapon David Conte, is in Las Vegas now.
