The Kings don't need another #6/#7 defenseman like the ones available for the waiver draft. When everybody is health they have about 5 or 6 guys that are better than anybody listed. Most of the Kings defenseman also have more upside, so why block these guys with washed-up, tired old dmen?
If the Kings need a dman, they need a bonafide PP QB like Schnieder was for the Kings. Currently, I have no faith in the combined abilities of Modry, Visnovsky and Corvo to lead the PP like Schnieder did. Really I hope those three prove me wrong, because I know the Kings will not acquire a dman of Schnieder's ilk to man the PP. The Kings won't spend the money and they don't want to give up the cheap young prospects or the players with expiring contracts that are going to make this team flexible once the the new CBA comes down.
So, be happy with the team you have, because it's the team you will be seeing for the rest of this season (excluding the all-to-frequent players arriving from Manchester).
