I think DT needs to give the current team an opportunity to "respond" to the latest situation. No major moves for 5-games or so. The team has been presented an incredible challenge with the loss of Palffy, let's see if they can, and if so, who responds before a fire sale.

Additionally, this could be a good opportunity to take a look at some of the "older" Monarchs (ie. Kelly, Rosa, Rullier) at the NHL level and decided if they have a future with the Kings organization. The time to make decisions on the older guys that I mentioned has been rapidly approaching if not already reached. IMO, management rushing into something, could be viewed as a vote of no-confidence and just make a terrible situation worse. Recall someone from Manchester for a 3rd-4th line role and let the NHL regulars step-up would be my approach and that's likely why I don't make the decisions.
