He's a UFA-to-be, and Kings really aren't using him much right now.

Injuries have taken their toll, but he's only 32. He's not the dynamic player he was in his 20's, but he's still a great skater with a solid repertoire of offensive skills who plays sound 2-way hockey.

aside from adding the french canadian component (which new management has said is a focus) he's the kind of player that would complement the habs top-9 nicely. could play on any of the top-3 lines, personally I'd like to see him on Plekanec's wing... good enough defensively to handle line assignments Pleks line gets, skilled enough to complement Plekanec much better than Bourque or Gionta currently do.

i'd do a 3rd or a conditional 2nd

I don't see the point, he adds nothing we need and he doesn't even have a goal yet. It's dumb to trade for a guy just because he's french.
