Obvious point but worth emphasizing - what qualities do Cammalleri, Visnovsy, O'Sullivan, Purcell, and I'll throw in Grebeshkov even though he is pre-Lombardi, all have in common. All are offensive minded, finesse players who are either considered "soft" or don't have the size or demeanor to play a hard checking style.
Besides Washington, the Kings have only 17 fewer goals scored than the next highest scoring teams. I think we have the offense anyway. So, to trade the above players for the kinds of players that are helping make the Kings one of the best teams in the league has been worth it.
