A playmaking winger of Hemsky's skill is exactly what that first line, and Kopitar in particular, needs to become a solid game-to-game scoring threat.
Not sure about Cup contenders, but provided this team finishes better than 8th, improving on last year's post-season is a very good possibility. I mean, hell, the West is by and large a crapshoot...if the chips fall the right way, why can't the Kings make it to the conference finals, picking up more invaluable experience for a future Cup run along the way?
I'm not saying DL should go for broke to bring in that top line winger, but there is definitely reason to load up the offense, whether you believe the team's SCF-calibre or not.
