    I didn't see anyone post about this nor have I heard about this until now.

    It wasn't close to happening. The mention of Lucic shut it down.

    Lucic, who is 31, has two more years at $6M per PLUS a NMC. The final two years, which are also at $6M per, include a modified NTC / NMC.

    The Kings want to emphasize youth, as well as a speedier and more skilled team. Unless Lucic has gotten faster and more skilled this summer, he would be little but a boat anchor, AND take a slot away from a young forward.

    As to Jesse Puljujarvi, he a) is coming off surgery on both hips, b) will have his ELC expire after the upcoming season, c) hasn't shown yet that he can be a top-6 guy at the NHL level (although he is still only 21), and d) would be playing under Todd McClellan again, which who knows, may or may not be a good thing.

    Blake likely would be tarred and feathered if he made this deal, especially if it included sending Matt Luff and a draft pick the other way.

    It makes no sense at all for LA. Why would they help Edmonton get out of a bad contract with no benefit to themselves???

    Take Milan for the final two years? sure, along with your first in 2020 and a second in 2021. No problem then.

    Sounds like the type of rumor started by an Edmonton fan.

    I agree torches for sure at Blake's house if this knucklehead trade takes place. If Lucic is useless on a McDavid line, imagine how slow and non-productive he'd be with any King!

    He might get laughed off the forum if he included "LUCIC and deal" in the same title.

    Blake is doing his job and listening to anything that comes his way. Nothing is off the table. If this discussion did happen, I imagined Blake countered with a few 1st round picks as a return. If one year of Marleau can fetch a 1st rounder, then Holland better come with a while bag full of them for somebody to take Lucic.

    agreed. I have no problem with the Kings taking a ****ty contract or two for picks/futures. the way the trade was outlined doesn't make a whole lot of sense for LA unless they thought they could somehow trade both players in deadline deals, or Puljujarvi has significantly more value than i've given him credit for.

    I think it's a good deal, just needs a little tweak. Take out Puljujarvi, put in McDavid. Done.
