If this deal is true I'm going to miss Grossmann. He's a tough SOB and shot blocking machine. He gave tough minutes but with the emergence of Schenn I think it made him expandable. Also if we get Martinez we are obviously finally helping PL out with getting the defense to mesh with the style of hockey he wants to run. So more mobile puck movers is good.
I like Clifford in this deal too. More skilled sandpaper. It will make this team tough to play against and hard to physically match. I don't think too highly of Cousins. He has major holes in his game to work out and to be honest I don't think his scoring touch in the juniors will translate to the pros. If he can develop into a 2nd liner then good for the kings because he will be an annoying SOB to play against. If he doesn't, I don't think he can be a bottom six player unless he makes great strides in improving his defensive awareness.
