It's crazy to think Mike Richards is untradable because of a handful of hockey games this season. He might not have the same value, depending on the team, but if we were to shop him, he would certainly be in high demand.

Stoll is easily movable as well, but I just don't see Lombardi shopping him, nor should he yet.

Gagne has been better as of late and it will be interesting to see how he develops with Richards and Carter going forward.

Penner is definitely the odd man out, and needs to be moved for likely whatever we can get for him, though I don't see any deals for him soon. Will likely be a trade deadline deal for a mid pick or prospect.

Sort of surprising. I like Rupp, and getting both Powe and Palmieri seems like a pretty good return for him. Not a bad trade for either side from my perspective.

Something ranging in-between a first and second round pick if we were to firesale, but I doubt he is available. We have no immediate player than can step in, and the Kings aren't going to demote Richards or force Richardson onto the line, and I am not a fan of King or Nolan being allowed to play center at the NHL. Unless you can think of a swap, I can't see us parting with him, especially so early in the season.
