Every year it's the same thing.

A contender trades a good prospect or good picks for a veteran player, HF which ofcourse stands for Hockey's FUTURE explodes with people calling it an overpayment.

Pittsburgh has Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Fleury, Neal, Kunitz all still in their prime years, if they feel Brenden Morrow may put them over the top they are going to make the deal, they owe it to their fans and most importantly their current players.

Just like if DL pulls the trigger on Iginla, it's because he feels Iginla is the type of player that will make the difference in a series against the Hawks or Ducks.

Plus, let's be honest. Kopitar, Brown, Richards, Carter, Toffoli, Stoll, Clifford, King, Lewis look to be here for a long time, how long before some of these hot shot prospects end up like Loktionov, where there is no room.

The Kings clearly need another finisher, and they have a core in their primes signed long term. It makes sense for the Kings.
