Chris Butler - 254 NHL games, age 26, $1,250,000 this season, RFA at end of season

None of them are world beaters, but they all have some game experience under their belts and shouldn't cost a boat load in terms of resources to acquire. They're all signed until the end of the season and the team can cut them loose after the playoffs if they so desire since they're intended to be a temporary insurance policy for the stretch run.
They're all terrible options and no better than what the Kings currently have. They're depth defensemen who serve no purpose in being regularly in a lineup. Adding any of the aforementioned would be a move just for the sake of adding a healthy body, which the Kings don't need to make right now. Pass.
