Let's break this down

The Kings simply aren't looking for a defensemen or a top 6 forward. We need to bolster the bottom 6. To me that would eliminate a player like Parise.

So if you are scouting the devils for 3rd line guys for us...Zubrus, Clarkson. And considering those are 2 guys who have been scoring for an offensively stunted New Jersey...the trade doesn't make sense.

Unless we are looking to trade somewhat struggling prospects..

IE: Hickey for Zharkov

or if you are NJ and looking to add defensive rebuild depth (which they don't have AT ALL.) at the cost of a decent prospect're talking like..Martinez or Muzzin for a Tedenby, Josefson or Palmieri.

and again...a deal like that doesn't make the most sense.

It is pretty well known though that NJ is in desperate need of a goalie......

see the above scenario with prospects and switch Bernier for one of those. Again, people over value Bernier. A goalie who MAY or MAY NOT be a starter in this league isn't going to net much more then a 2nd or 3rd round pick or a decent prospect.
