Montreal/Los Angeles

The question is for LA fans, do you think it's conceivable that we trade you Gomez for Ryan Smyth?

hell no.

Paying over 7 mill for someone who would be our 4th line centre doesnt seem like a good investment

I'm wrong then, i was pretty sure the Kings were in big need for a second line center.


EDIT: Also, sorry to the miss.

Most people believed them to be in need of it, but Stoll is playing absolutely unreal to start this year lessening the need so long as Stoll continues to play like he has. Also a complete lack of LW talent would prevent this trade either way.

I really don't think LA would trade Smyth at this point.

He would be at the bare minimum your 3rd line center and when Stoll were to cool down, your 2nd line center. Still, Gomez's contract is crap, LA has pretty good center depth and Smyth is actually playing well so I see absolutely no reason for LA to do this.

Yup the kings only have smyth at lw... Other than him we have no other quality lw's that can play on the top 6. (on a contender at least).

Nope, there's no way we're taking your 7 million dollar mistake contract.

That contract is too big for too long. Smyth's is too big but for not as long.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. Handzus has been one of our best and most consistent players the past 2 years. He is our 3rd line center. These are the Kings current centers on the team.

Kopitar
Stoll (who is playing out of his mind right now)
Handzus
Richardson/Schenn/Lewis

As you can see, we clearly don't need a center. As far as left wingers, as someone mentioned already, we don't have many, and definitely many high quality LWs.

To continue with what JBernierFan said above. No need. Zeus is our 3rd line center and shut down guy with Simmonds and Poni (3 big bodies) to go against the other #1 lines in the west and more specifically the Pacific. A 6'4" Zeus can go against a J. Thornton in SJ or a R. Getzlaf in Anaheim or B. Richards/M. Ribiero in Dallas where a Gomez can't and shouldn't. Zeus also plays in front of the net (as in screening the goalie, same as R. Smyth) on the 2nd power play unit which Gomez does not.

The 2nd line arguement doesn't work either since Stoll is playing great and L.A. is grooming B. Schenn and A. Loktionov for the 2nd line center role (even though Loktionov played wing on the 1st line for a few games).

L.A. already needs another LW and trading one away for a Center doesn't make sense. These 2nd line center proposals are getting rediculous since that was the rumour BEFORE the season started but look how L.A. is playing -

'ALL WE DO IS WIN, WIN, WIN!'
