I don't think Montreal and the Kings are a good match.
The Kings are looking for an experienced defenseman and other than Komisarek Montreal doesn't have any that would be of interest to Lombardi in a deal for O'Sullivan.
Since you guys aren't moving Komisarek (and who can blame you), I don't think there is a deal to be made here.
Also, I think the Kings match any offer up to $3.9M a season, and I doubt that O'Sullivan gets an offer sheet that high from anyone. I base this opinion on the idea that the Kings were probably willing to hang on to Cammalleri if he would have signed a 4 year deal for around $4M a season. In Lombardi's eyes (and mine too) O'Sullivan >>>> Cammalleri, so the Kings might have to overpay a little on this guy, but he is worth hanging onto. I see him as having the potential to be a consistent 30 goal scorer if he plays on Kopitar's wing along with Brown.
