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.
How about shop Martinez and keep both JJ and Voynov and have 3 of the most skilled puck movers in the same D group? Good? Good.
And i you think for the life of you Jack Johnson gets JVR as a return you are kidding yourself.
The whole reason Philly traded Carter and Richards was because JVR is their new go to guy. C'mon man....
