The only possible kicker to that is both Sucds and 44DD are UFA's after the season . I know we are trying to resign Sucds, but untilw e do we have to assume he isn't back next year.

Additionally, if we dealt a D-man to NYI for Grabner, they wouldn't want 44DD or Scuds for that reason, so they'd want an established D-man, with the most likely target being Voynov or A-Mart. A-Mart would seem the more likely to be dealt of those two.

As such, a Grabner for a D-man deal would likely leave us looking like this after the season:

Doughty
Voynov
Ellerby
Muzzin
Greene
Campbell
Bodnarchuk
Kolomatis (who is an RFA and may not even be resigned by the Kings)

Unless Scuds and 44DD are resigned, trading a defenseman could really pigeon-hole us next year.
