Maybe Garon + Mtl 2nd for the 11th? (though, as a Kings fan, I would be hesitant to make that deal if Kings scouts really like Montoya/Schwarz and he is there at 11)
For overpayment, it depens how you look at it. It depens on which player is availible at #11 and at #18. It also depens if Garon is considered as a starter by the Kings. The way I see it: if LA trades for a reliable starter, they are high on him, and they plan on giving him a real chance to prove himself next year, they made a good deal. If they trade for Garon as a backup, as a 5th tire, as a backup solution, then it's a brutal deal. So my question for the Kings fans would be : which role do you want Garon to fit in LA, starter or backup?
