Maybe on guy, as a dump. But if you look at DL's history, it is a pretty safe bet that if he trades Stoll and/or JW, he will be looking to replace them or fill a different hole on the team in such a trade.

He won't be signing 4 UFAs this summer. Of that I am certain. He will sign 1, 2 tops. Where you plug in Sutton, Grier and Cooke, DL, if he was so inclined to trade Stoll/JW, would trade them to fill those holes instead.
I think what you're referring to is DL answering a question during the playoff push not our future. All you have to do is to look at our forward prospects in the minors especially if Schenn, Lewis and Moller all stick with the kings. We're down to Lokti and maybe Kozun and that's it.
