Following the Kings as closely as I do (I work about 10 minutes from the Staples center), I don't think there is any chance of them making that kind of move. Lombardi has got as clear as mandate as any GM in the league and total control. The Kings are also drawing pretty well and are in no rush in their development.
If they did make a move, it would be closer to the kind of deals the BJs have made over the years - trading a pick for a youngish vet who can step in and stay under contract for years.
Put simply, the Leafs have no chance whatsoever of getting that pick without putting prime young assets (i.e., Schenn) on the table.
Man, do I ever miss Oleg Kvasha. If Oleg was here, everything would be OK.
