Here you go. These quotes are painful to read.
"We feel the addition of Mark and Brent will strengthen our team down the stretch as we battle for a playoff spot," said Taylor. "Mark is a proven NHL scorer and will be a boost to our power play and Brent will solidify our defensive corps and has the versatility to play in all situations."
It's rather sad that the Kings' best deadline deals have been when the team has been sellers, like when they dealt Smolinski to Ottawa to acquire Tim Gleason. Or when they acquired Sean Avery, Maxim Kuznetsov, and first-round choice in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft (Jeff Tambellini) and a second-round choice in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (later transferred to Boston) from Detroit for Mathieu Schneider. The best deadline trade the Kings made was back when they shipped an aging Ed Olczyk to Pittsburgh for Glen Murray.
