I suggested this in another thread, but I would love to see the Kings acquire Hjalmarsson as Mitchell's replacement. He's signed through next year, becoming a UFA in 2014.
i would be surprised to see them do anything. up until they got oduya and brookbank they were low on quality D. they fought being able to skate 6 D with typical ice times. the 5 and 6 played reduced minutes, simply because they didn't have the talent. now that coach Q has a strong back end i doubt the Hawks will want to weaken a unit that just became a strength. remember c crawford is still back there and shaky
