    I find it dubious that Tyler will garner much of a return. He is one of the weaker players I have observed in the area of puck protection. "Strong on the puck" is an oxymoron when describing his play. It's SO frustrating watching him lose the puck time and time again.

    Tyler Toffoli
    Eyebrows were certainly raised last week when Tyler Toffoli was a healthy scratch for the Kings. This isn’t a player past his best-before date. He’s 27.

    Yes, his production dipped big time last season (34 points in 82 games) on a Kings team that was a trainwreck in general.

    But Toffoli scored 31 goals in 2015-16 and had 24 goals in 2017-18. He knows his way around a net.

    The question is where exactly does he fit into the Kings’ plans? Toffoli is a pending UFA July 1. Everyone knows the Kings are in full rebuild mode. They will be getting younger over the next few years, making room for their promising prospects to make the jump. So some veterans on the Kings will be dealt over the next year or two to make way for those kids.

    Toffoli is 27, not 30-something. But my sense of the situation right now is that the Kings are more likely to pass on trying to re-sign him and will look to trade him before the Feb. 24 deadline.

    Of course, if you’re agent Pat Brisson, and Toffoli is his client, if that’s indeed the path the Kings take, you’re wanting him moved sooner rather than later so that the winger can go to a playoff contender and improve his stock in a contract year …

    For the Kings, however, the best deal is probably closer to Feb. 24 because so many teams are at the salary cap or in LTIR. It’s hard for them to absorb salary right now (his cap hit is $4.6 million).

    I do think Toffoli is an excellent candidate to bounce back in new surroundings. He may very well be one of this season’s sneaky trade deadline pickups, especially given his Stanley Cup resume.

    For what it's worth Lebrun is pointing to Toff as an early barometer of the rental market for the trade deadline. Considering the drop in returns for rentals, Ill trust Lebrun to be the solid source he usually is but I'll be taking even his leads with a grain of salt.

    Considering the Kings are $6M UNDER the cap, I have no idea how they are pressed to take on salary

    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.

    Exactly. Kings have a ton of cap space right now. They can retain salary on up to 3 guys. If they return half on Toffoli, trade him, and replace with an AHL'er, then the Kings will have a million more in cap room. By 'they', Lebrun had to be referring to the teams which would be trading for Toffoli.

    Couldn't and shoudn't the Kings retain 100% of remaining salary on all impending UFAs at the trade deadline as a sugar-free sweetener?

    The ultimate goal is to add more 1st rounders. IF Blake can sweat it out until minutes before the deadline, it could happen if he retains 100% for the rest of the season

    Or, it could be a conditional 1st if Toffoli performs and new team advances to whatever round in the playoffs.

    I think LeBrun is right, teams know and understand Toffoli could look better on their team and will pay a 2nd.

    Max retention per cba is 50%

    The historical ask for the top rental has been a first and a prospect. As the gms have moved away from rentals and more towards getting at least one year under contract the rental return has come down.
