The most obvious is Hasek. Really? He was done 5 years ago, that is just painful bad. If Bernier is traded, I'd rather Jones or any number of other available options. Hasek is nowhere close to an NHL goalie at this point.

Why is the name of hell would we trade Gagne? He will be HUGE on the 2nd or 3rd line, with a full off-season to train for the first time in a long time. At very least he is a 15-15 type player with very very solid defensive awareness, why trade that?

Westgarth should be nowhere near LA. I've said that ad nauseum, he is simply not even close to an NHL player. Clifford can actually play the game of hockey, he will be the extra guy we put in if we need more size and toughness in the corners/out front. NOBODY needs a fighter in today's game.

Clifford will NOT clear waivers.

Drewiske should be replaced by the winner of Hickey/Muzzin training camp battle. Hickey and Muzzin have much more upside, Hickey likely would not clear waivers (possibility Muzzin won't clear as well), one of them needs to be in the NHL, neither will benefit from any more time in AHL. Give the winner the roster spot, probably get 35-50 games this year, the Kings run of defensive healthiness is bound to break soon. Drewiske should clear waivers and can be the #8 in case of injuries.
