I think it's time to decide who you want to go forward with: Jack Johnson or Voynov. Pick one of them to be your offensive defenseman on the second pairing and shop the other one around.

Rather than trying to land the big fish like Nash or Parise at LW who will require a large chunk of cap space, trade for a guy like TJ Oshie or JVR who are still young and have manageable cap hits and can grow with this team.

JJ and Voynov are attractive pieces for teams lacking talent on defense. The Kings need to use their surplus of talented defenseman to get a top line winger if they are serious about winning now. As stated above, Gagne belongs on the 2nd line, and Penner belongs in the bottom 6 or hopefully shipped out of town.
