Not that I expect any of this to happen, but the point is that a trade by the Kings does not preclude an offer sheet.
But if it was a huge offer sheet you would still get compensation. You would get the shot at signing your starter for the next 10 years and what looks to be an exceptional one at that and if you can't get it done for one reason or another you would still end up with a 1st and a 3rd in 14 at a minimum, right?

So you would effectively have ended up dealing your 1st this year for a 1st and a 3rd next year and if you don't get better goaltending you could easily end up picking around the same then?

I mean if we are going to speculate then why not go all the way with it?
