In that circumstance, at the return of the injured party, would you consider trading one of Eberle or Yakupov if the return featured multiple pieces of QUALITY depth.

Deals Like Visnovsky for Stoll and Green, or Nash for Dubinsky, Anisimov, Erixon. In both of these cases, it made the teams who got multiple quality pieces in return, better.
I really don't buy that the Visnovsky trade was really all that great for the Kings.

Stoll was redundant in some ways, especially since they would get Carter and Richards, and he's damaged goods.

Green is massively overrated and has the hockey IQ of a brick.

Visnovsky + Doughty on the Kings would be lights out. The Kings got better because of the natural development of their core pieces -- Kopitar, Doughty, the emergence of Quick, etc.
