Let me think about how I can involve the Kings in a 3-way trade that works for us....

...ok,

LAK Gets
Alex Semin
Brian Pothier (1 yr salary dump $2.5m)

COL Gets
#5 overall
Michael Neuvirth
Chris Clark (1yr salary dump $2.6m)

WAS Gets
Milan Hejduk
Oscar Moller

I'm pretty darn sure the Avs would do this. I like it from the Caps perspective because of the salary clearance that both teams can help with. Do the Kings sign up?
Colorado makes out like a bandit on this deal. They do lose a very good one-way player in Hejduk, but at 33 he isn't going to get better. But picking up the 5th overall to go along with there 3rd would definitely help fast track their rebuild. Although Clark is still contracted for two years. What is the prospective ceiling on Neuvirth? Is he expected to be the starter of the future the Avs have been desperately looking for, or another Budaj?
