I'd love a great defenseman, I just really think that the Kings will try to sign two top forwards, a middle of the road defender (probably Quintal, again ) and a back-up goaltender. I'm not shooting your options down, i'm just hoping we don't spend there.
We've got approx. 19 million to work with at this moment. If we can spend 7.8 million on a franchise player (forward or defenseman) I say do it. We could still pick up two other "key free agents" to fill out our roster and still have money left over to work with. We need an impact guy....right now we don't have one and in a market like this, it is necessary.
