On top of that, the Kings would have to add a top six forward and most likely a 1st round pick. The only top six forward that the Kings would move is Dustin Penner. While he's not necessarily an attractive asset right now, his salary has to be moved and it makes sense for him to fill a hole on the Devils roster to finish off the season.

If Lamoriello knows that he will not be able to re-sign Parise or if he has been given orders by his owner to move him, then I would think that a trade of Bernier, Voynov, Penner and a 1st would be an attractive package for the Devils to obtain.
You can't be serious. Why in the world would we give up all that for a potential free agent? It's one thing if we can get an extension, but as a ufa, there's no way we give them anything close to what you're proposing.

Remember, DL didn't want to give up one of JJ, Simmonds or Brown for Kovi.
