Do the other GM's just hate dealing with Lombardi?

To a larger extent yes, DL hasn't tried to hide the fact that he is searching for a legit top 6 so he must not be that concerned but with there being such a small market for top 6's teams can ask for more no?
Even if Lombardi said nothing, wouldn't it be obvious, especially to people who's job it is to notice, that the Kings need some more offense? Once Lombardi and some other GM even begin talking trade, then isn't the secret out?
As for teams asking for more, isn't that more about what player and which team are being talked about? If Hemsky was a free agent this summer, it wouldn't take as much to get him. But the Oilers don't have to trade him, so that alone will make the price higher. Stewart went to St.Louis for a top young defenseman with NHL experience. Unless the Kings were willing to give Doughty or Johnson, or some package equivalent to that, then there wasn't a discussion to be had.
