The Kings will add someone to the roster simply because they don't want to deal with any complacency with the same group. Adding a new dynamic to the team could help inject some extra motivation for them to make another strong run at the Cup. The players seeing their team make another addition and improvement to the roster also indicates to them that the organization and management is serious at repeating.

Take the 1998 Wings team for example. They added two veterans to the roster who hadn't won the Cup in Brent Gilchrist and Jamie Macoun. They were the last team to repeat Cup wins. The Penguins did the same thing. They won the Cup in 1990 with Recchi, shipped him out and brought in Rick Tocchet for their Cup repeat in 1991.

I know we want to see them bring the Cup winning team back, which is exactly what the Kings will be doing, but adding a fresh new face to this strong core could add another dimension that this team could use. A player like Doan could inject that extra incentive for them to win another Cup, and this is a team that is fully capable of becoming the first team since Detroit to accomplish that.
