I guess we only have some interest in Moen (without massive overpayment).
Where did you hear that?

For Moen we would get a 2nd

For gill a mid pick.

So we're not getting Penner or Williams or Johnson, neither of them makes sense.
PG been scouting them so I can't see it being for picks. Penner don't make much sense for us. Maybe something built around Williams or Brown?

Personally, I think we should trade for Mike Richards but only because he and PK are such good friends.

I can't see them trading Brown or Williams, if anything they NEED wingers with Penner doing nothing. They are strong at center and on defense.

I can see Voynov Clifford and Loktionov as guys he was checking out.

If we are after Prospects and/or picks, why is PG watching the Kings?

Sadly there were a lot of rumours -some from legit sources- that Gauthier wanted Penner but the price was too high. I still think he wants to bring him over

I figure you guys would go after Hemsky or AK to get some goal scoring.

Moen becomes redundant in your lineup imo.

I was tweeting back and forth with Bernstein from TFP and thats where he told me AK for Martinez type deal was what the kings were looking for. No chance for a 1st or Clifford. He also agreed with me that Weber > Martinez so in reality I wouldn't be interested in dealing with the Kinds especially since they don't have a 2nd rounder.

Funny part is I could see them playing well together. We would be the biggest trolls in the NHL I mean might as well trade for Cooke and pickup Avery off waivers at that point

And I am one to think Subban's image is overblown by the media but lets face it he's despised around the league as a result

Probably so....maybe Pener just not good fit in LA. A year ago he looked lot better player. Maybe AK for Penner and Kings #1 pick?

With a conditional 3rd if AK resigns. Or try to get a prospect, AK on his own would fetch at least a 1st + Prospect. If Penner did AK easily, easily will. Otherwise I would keep him, I am tired of our team settling just to get rid of a player that isnt perfect.

Yeah that makes a ton of sense. So they sign AK but have their highest pick be a mid/low 4th rounder

When was the last time you saw a team not pick until the middle/late 4th round?

Penner was coming off of a 36 goal season, and had 21 goals in 62 games on the day he was traded.

He was also signed for an extra year where AK is a UFA.

How exactly does AK "easily, easily" return the same value as Penner did last year?

We don't need Martinez, so that's a huge waste.

Unless you're Dean Lombardi how do you really know for sure who the Kings are interested in? I suppose since you said "we" maybe you are Dean Lombardi since you seem pretty sure of what you're talking about..

Agreed and as much as I like Alec Martinez, we have enough young defensemans and have drafted plenty in the last couple of years. If we are to move Kostitsyn, we have to get a forward back. And if they aren't interested in trading a pick, then definitely pass. Find another trade partner Gauthier!
