Kings GM Lombardi confirms talks with Gauthier

I got this from the Kings board, surprised no one posted this. It definitely explains PGs presence in multiple KIngs games these last few weeks

Lombardi:"We all have holes to fill. I'm trying to straighten this club." He didn't want to say whom he was looking at, but did talk with PG

I want us to trade Subban beacuse trading a young promising player has never backfired.

My prediction is Andrei Kostitsyn + Hal Gill to L.A.

They are going to re-unite Gill and Scuderi in L.A. and I think Gauthier is targetting Penner.

Also, a long shot is that Gauthier will try to acquire Jack Johnson!!! But it would have to start with Subban or Pacioretty.

I like Jack Johnson but wouldn't move Subban or Pacioretty for him.

Lombardi is probably looking at all expirings that fit in the top 6/top 9 category. It's pretty natural stuff for teams heading into the POs to look at guys they can graft to fill some weaknesses.

Probably. Kings don't really need help on defence. They are strong down the middle, and could use scoring/depth on the wings.

Yep, but PG was drooling for him last year. I don't want Penner anyway.

Not even close to Subban or Pacioretty imo. He doesn't yield that type of return, not even close.

That would be a horrible move. If they want Gill they can have him, Kostitsyn for Penner is simply brutal. Penner will be a UFA so if that's the case I guess PG plans on trading him right after. Then what, who does he sign this summer to replace Kostitsyn? Not much on the market doesn't make much sense. If we trade Kostitsyn I want a player coming back that will be here for a while and I do think Gauthier wants Clifford

By that I mean it's not a big story.

I'm all for it...as long as Clifford is included plus a 2nd or 3rd.

I'm pretty sure if he's still the GM, Gauthier will try to sign Penner to a contract. Hence, why he'd trade for him.

Justin Williams and Erik Cole scored 9 seconds apart in the second period, lifting the Hurricanes to a 5-1 victory over the Bruins on Friday.

#KeepKostitsyn

Also, not a big Penner fan, so I'm doubly against that swap. Justin Williams would be a good pick up, and not just saying that because he's from Cobourg. Would continue the trend of acquiring Habs killers (Cole, Bourque, Kaberle)

Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole
Bourque-Plekanec-Williams

However, "Filling holes" and "straightening the club" sounds like Moen or Gill to me.

Also, I love how Lombardi says what our GM should have said weeks ago "the rumors concerning #Habs Subban are ridiculous. we never talked about him"

If PG is even considering trading for UFA Penner he needs to be fired before he can do it. Trading assets for UFA's makes zero sense this season.. Get picks and prospects instead since this team is going nowhere this year.

Which would be even worse. A Kostitsyn for Penner deal, I don't even want to think about it
