Couple things...one the cap hit is too much for those two. Secondly, Dean isn't going to trade Simmonds and Teubert for a couple rentals. If any Kings player and prospects are going to another team, its for a player that has a stable contract length that works with the Kings.

If the Kings were contenders this season, which they arent, they could gamble on a contract like that and a give up those type of assets for a Hemsky/Penner. We're just not at that point just yet.
