These guys see what the other teams are doing, their opponents are loading up for a run and as of right now the Kings are losing players. I expect a deal to get done before the deadline.

I think that was the resoning behind the Halpern/Modin deals last year. Half fill a depth need, half to show the guys management supports making the playoffs and will do something to improve the club. Nothing major mind you, but better than doing nothing while the rest of the playoff teams load up.
