    Simmonds will return a prospect and a 1st come the deadline.
    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.

    I hate to say it,but I too would be ok with trading Quick, but we need young talent in return.

    Carter Hart making Quick unnecessary.
    Kubrick
    The Kings roster is like a late stage game of Tetris. What they really need is a long skinny piece but all we keep getting are Kyle Clifford and Nate Thompson shaped blocks.

    Trading Quick for cap relief makes no sense since kings would give up control of that cap recapture. You'd have to get him on a contending team and hope that he stayed healthy. Not sure what return makes you overlook that

    Since his return from his injury, Quick's save % is about .920 and his GAA is about 2.36. Not sure why people think trading him is such a good idea. Our goalies' combined cap hit is about $6.5 million, which is very manageable. The guy was our best player by far in the playoffs last year. We have a couple of younger goalies that can help lighten the load.

    If we get an offer that's too good to turn down, then sure, but there's no rush to trade the greatest goalie in our history. I think some people are forgetting how long it was before Quick that we had a world class goalie. Hrudey and Potvin were not that. Not even close.

    Only Vachon comes close to Quick.

    The Kings must look forward. Quick's contributions will never be forgotten.

    Id do it in a heartbeat for the right return. Dump the contract and build for the era of Cal. Our vets were built for 2012 not 2018.

    So? He's going to lead the Kings to their next Cup? He'll be ancient by the time they're ready to compete again. Trade him while he still has value. The past is the past. And quickly getting to be ancient past. There is nothing he can do for the Kings other than get them a pick or prospect. At best, he can help them win a few more games right now. And that is not actually a help.
