It would save you guys a lot of salary, and Clifford is like a poor man's version of Simmonds. Dunno how the Kings stay under the cap and re-sign the rest of their RFA's if Mitchell winds up being healthy. It could work though. A lot of us wanted Grossman from Dallas. Both Clifford and Amart will be making under a million. Amart is a solid defenseman whose upside at max is a #4 mobile defenseman, but will likely remain a 5-6; however, he has a great shot and good defensive instincts, nice vision and can move the puck well. He's fallen out of favor after injury and Sutter favor's the upside of Muzzin over him.

Also, Barry doesn't have a whole lot of credibility in trades, but he does get some close. He was the one reporting Frattin + 1st for Bernier. He is the ex-HockeyBuzz blogger for the Kings. Trades was always his weakness, so while the teams may have talked and thrown around some of these names, I wouldn't give it much clout.
