Too bad LA Kings don't need a center. They've got the package perfectly fitted for us, exactly what we need.

Jordan Staal for Dustin Brown + Matt Greene

RH 2-way hard-hitting winger for Sid, plus big physical stay-at-home Dman.
I don't see Oshie as "better" than Brown but he would be as good a piece as you can hope for in a realistic Staal trade scenario. Only thing really concerning with Oshie is he's never actually hit 20 goals, let alone the 30+ season that Brown has, but the potential is definitely there. I think he could replace some of the all-purpose value that Staal has as a physical presence, penalty killer, and two-way player, plus potentially more PP utility.

Tangradi - Crosby - Oshie
Kunitz - Malkin - Neal

That would (or absolutely should) be a load to handle.
