If they were 21-22 and looked like that, it would be a different story. Mitchell & Regehr are veteran stay-at-home guys, but all it takes is one blocked shot or body check to put them back on the IR.
I'm not saying the Kings absolutely need to trade for a defenseman, I'm just saying if they do trade Bernier for say Meszaros or Coburn, it would definitely improve the team and remove the sting from Scuderi leaving.
How much do Kings fans think Muzzin & Martinez are going to get on their next contracts, seeing as they're both RFAs? You guys seem to value them very highly, are they $2.5 million players? $3 million? More than that? I don't think it's a coincidence that Voynov was resigned first.
