The other things that always get overlooked but mentioned in the same breath are that there are TONS of solid young goalies who are ready for their shot at starting or close to it.
Noronen/Biron/Miller are just three of M A N Y names that could possibly be available this summer and for a TON less than it would take to get Theo, a truly great goalie no doubt but, not so great that some Hab fans wouldn't deal him, so why would the Kings even begin to consider this deal?
Grebeshkov is money in the bank. He is one of HFs top 18 prospects and ranked even higher than that by many others. He played absolutely bloody grand when he came up with the Kings for his cuppa late this year so, while he alone isn't worth Theo, the Kings would need a massive return to move him.
The 11th pick is debatable but all picks always are, still, it is very valuable to the Kings who as other have said need a bloody lot more than a top goalie to get them to the next point so they would be better served to either draft the best player available at 11th or try dealing the pick to move up or as part of a package deal that will address more than one of their many needs.
Also, Theo has taken some hits over the past two years on the character front and while I feel it is much ado about naught, I wouldn't think that the Habs would want to deal him if they were to at all until a little more time has passed so his value can rocket.
If I wanted to deal Theo, I would wait until 20 or so games passed and see who is desperate and then try to bang out a deal but that is me.
No thanks from a Kings fan point of veiw, too many other viable options and the price is too steep for what it brings to our needs, not that Theo isn't worth it.
