Yep, Smyth coming back from injury makes this trade all the more likely.

The Kings want to win now, so they can't afford to give Purcell top-6 playing time, but it's essentially useless to let him languish in the bottom 6.

I could see the Kings ditching Purcell and possibly loading up at the trade deadline with a big splash.
