Not a stupid or crazy proposal but it doesn't offer anything that would make LA bite.

The three assets of TO that would make LA want to trade are two players and your 2013 first rounder. The players are Matt Frattin (fits our system well and replaces Penner) and Carl Gunnarson (we need defensive D help now and in the future).

To be honest I don't see value for TO to part with any of those three assets for Penner, even if we throw in Loktionov. And the Kings are light on NHL scoring wing depth (we're converting centers to right wingers like Carter, Lewis and Nolan, and we're converting RWs to LWs in Brown). Even though we have a full line up now with Gagne, we may need Penner as a reserve. It will take an immediate replacement/upgrade or help in an even more critical area to get us to trade.
