norstrom is a pipe dream only, unless toronto wants to make another bad long term trade.. atleast imo

two excellent posts. now i would just like to add one thing. the kings are down but not out. i'm not quite sure they are looking to go back into rebuilding just yet. trading norstrom would indicate they were doing so. i see it as a far far chance of us doing so. but it is fun to discuss
