It is better to pick up rentals at the deadline IMO.

Hypothetically, you can pick up one 5 mil man now and have no cap room...

but with the salary structure of the NHL...or you could pick up 2 or maybe even 3 players who make 5 million at the deadline because their cap number is adjusted when they switch teams.
You are right....but you will not be able to get players from cap hell teams at the trade deadline (those players will be long gone by then). Also it would help the Kings to make the playoffs by having another quality player on the roster for 70+ games instead of for just 20 games (when the trade deadline happens). The Kings could already be out of the playoff picture by the trade deadline.
