Too busy, even on my birthday, to hang too long w/you guys.

Just dropping off a coupla thoughts till the weekend....

It is obvious the Kings are desperate for offense.
Aware he prob. can veto, and it's not a great contract coming back, but what about

Nash, Girardi + possible cap/balance adds
Doughty, Pearson, Martinez + Kings 1st?


Second, as you know I have long advocated holding JT Miller to pair with Kreider.
I maintain that would be a success.

In the course of recent threads, Buf seemed ok w/putting Pysyk on the table, but Miller had to be in the deal.

Ott is likely to test FA after season. Ditto Cally at our end. But perhaps:
Ott + Pysyk
Miller + Callahan

Sabes like JT and could gamble, but we might up ante to extend Cally if nec, but this is win, win both sides and they are sure to get him.
I still think we should consider moving Stepan for an upgrade, and finding a faster C for Kreider, maybe MAYBE Kesler, but, let's say both deals done:

Kreider Stepan Zucarello
Pearson Ott Brassard
Hagelin Richards* Pouilot**
Carcillo Moore Dorsett**

as a work in progress.
* next year Lindberg ** next year Fast replaces one of these guys probably Dorsett to make all Swede 3rd line w/Pouilot (LW but a righty shot) dropped to 4th line.

Yogan/Kristo/Hrivik all in this mix as well
McD Doughty
Staal Pysyk
Moore/Martinez Klein/Stralman/McIlrath

Big time upgrade to RD, moved a big contract, got value for our UFAs... + Kings 1st?
leave anything out?

Boyle likely gonner for more $$, best offer, maybe oilers, bundle w/like Missainen to compete for backup.

Till weekend!
