For one thing you don't land a good defenseman without giving something up. Lombardi possibly making a deal to land Schneider is not going to have a longterm effect on the Kings and isn't really what I was alluding to.
O'Sullivan is a good two way player, but it's not doing anybody any good when he's not in camp with the rest of the team learning a new defensive system. It's also nice to know that Purcell could possibly make O'Sullivan expendable.
Purcell is a right wing so i am not sure he is vying for O'Sullivan's spot, but yes i get your point. Someone could step up, of course the season hasn't officially started.
I think any viable long term solution in respect to defense is not there yet, but i could be wrong.
Either way O'Sullivan seems like a pretty bright guy, i am sure he will catch on to the system even though your right he will behind the eight ball. It won't be any different for the guy he gets traded for if such is the case.
