Instead of JF Jacques, I could see Ethan Moreau possibly coming over and maybe move that 3rd that we give to a 2nd?
I wasn't sure on the numbers, but I knew that Gilbert + Jacques would be very close maybe a little more than Stoll + Martinez. But the Oilers need someone a little bigger, and tougher down the middle, and the Kings desperately need a puckmoving defenseman and Gilbert is by far the best fit on Edmonton for that. I chose Jacques over Moreau since I thought he would be easier to get in a trade, he has some offensive upside, and is alot bigger and more physical than Moreau. The Kings could really use someone like Jacques to replace Clune. Clune is completely useless, IMO. A small agitator that doesn't agitate. This would be my lineup next year then.

Smyth - Kopitar - Brown
FA(Frolov/Marleau) - Schenn - Williams
Parse - Handzus - Simmonds
Jacques - Richardson - Moller
Lewis - Westgarth

Doughty - Scuderi
Johnson - Gilbert
Greene - Voynov(maybe Hickey)
Drewiske

Quick
Bernier

I think that lineup wins the division, but that might just be me.
