Although not necessarily a big name, what do you guys think of Alex Tanguay as a rental for the playoff run? He's been one of Calgary's more productive players with 32 points and has a low cap hit at $1.7M that expires at the end of the season.

Although he's not the most attractive option at first thought, he could add something that the Kings are missing in the lineup, a playmaking winger who can setup his linemates. The Kings are lacking in generating chances off the rush, but with good puck movement, they can increase those chances, and Tanguay can help in that area.

I also don't think it would cost much to acquire him. If they keep the lines intact as of now with some tinkering, the Kings could ice the following lineup:

Smyth-Kopitar-Williams
Tanguay-Stoll-Brown
Sturm-Handzus-Simmonds
Clifford/Ponikarovsky-Richardson-Lewis/Westgarth

Gives the team some much needed depth up front for the playoffs. It also negates the probability of Westgarth seeing ice time.
