I do understand that the Kings could do the trade and use DD or one of their other centers to get something else they need, but the guys they would be losing are valuable to their team and not worth breaking up their chemistry over.

KingCanadian1976 wasn't being insulting, that was a different person who has, thankfully, moved on.
Exactly. The proposal was the equivalent of the Kings needing a goal scoring winger (something they could use another of actually), asking for Patches, and then offering Montreal a goalie in return. Doesn't mean that the players involved in the proposal on either side are crap, just that it doesn't fit team needs. If LA were to need a center, they'd try the options they have on the roster first, before moving depth pieces to get a new center when they have 9 guys that can play center on the roster.
