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.
Sounds like the makings of a pretty good poll. Who was the best acqusition at the deadline in their history? If you did the worst players the list would be too long. Is it just me or did Dave taylor basically say the same thing about every player?
