Interesting. So, if the kings were to trade either Ivanans or Westy to any team in the nhl for a 7th round pick, do you REALLY think that the majority of gms would pick Westy over Raitis?

You're kidding me right? You do know that TM gives icetime to those who play well and bench those that don't or he doesn't have confidence in right? ATOI is the measure of success in eyes the of TM and that's more important than any other stat.

And let's not fool ourselves, we don't have guys like Ivanans and Westy to add scoring. Yes, it'd be nice once in awhile but primary reason for them being on the team is to provide toughness and not be a liability out on the ice which I believe Westy still is.
