2) That's why it makes a ton of sense for the Kings to make this trade. They already have elite offensive talent. What they need is a great all-around player like Richards.
3) The Blue Jackets, being the small market franchise they are, can't do better than a Carter. It makes sense that they would be willing to make this deal, especially in a "weak" draft.
4) The Flyers are probably going to draft Mika Zibanejad, me thinks
5) Guess the Kings are out of the Brad Richards sweepstakes.
I keep seeing that they like Ryan Murphy.
