It's time to go shopping. Here's a list of players with expiring contracts who may or may not be dealt. These are all impending free agents who could help the Kings address their need for A) scoring and B) grit.

Top Six Options:
Zach Parise
Shane Doan
Alex Semin
Ales Hemsky
Kristian Huselius
Tuomo Ruutu
Ray Whitney
Andrei Kostitsyn
Mikhail Grabovski
Vinny Prospal
David Jones
Jiri Hudler
P.A. Parenteau

As you guys can see, there is a huge drop off in talent after Parise. I don't anticipate him being dealt at the deadline, and if the Kings miss out on him in free agency (which I expect to happen), then they are going to have to settle for Plan B.

Here's the list of bottom six forwards who can address the team's need for more offensive punch and for more grit and nastiness from the bottom two lines:

Bottom Six Options:
Paul Gaustad
Chris Kelly
Travis Moen
Jordin Tootoo
Torrey Mitchell
David Moss
Kyle Wellwood
Gregory Campbell
Frans Neilsen
Adam Burish
Dominic Moore
Taylor Pyatt
Daniel Paille
Daniel Winnik
Brandon Prust
Shawn Thornton
Daniel Carcillo
Joey Crabb
Tanner Glass

It's a mix of players who can provide offense from the bottom six and/or provide some more nastiness, two things the Kings need more out of those lines. The Kings need to play a more puck possession game from top to bottom, they can't rely on all of their offense from just two lines, nor can they risk having a bottom six that can't at the very least pressure the opposition in the attacking zone. I think the players listed above could help address that problem.

Tampa Bay Times reports the Kings are pursuing Ryan Malone:
Quote:
There have been plenty of rumors about whom the Lightning might be willing to move, with D Pavel Kubina, LW Ryan Malone and C Dominic Moore most mentioned. Kubina has been linked to the Rangers and Flames, Malone to the Kings (with the speculated return being G Jonathan Bernier) and Moore to the Penguins and Senators.

It's way too obvious that they'd want Malone. He's the Hartnell type of big LW that Lombardi highly covets.

Im starting to think we might eventually regret the Richards trade. Simmonds has really taken a step forward and Schenn looks like we all thought he would look like. Richards has slightly underperformed imo. Great in defensive zone but so so in offensive zone. In the same situation I would make the same trade a thousand times over. I just hope it does not come back to bite us in the @$$.

As for now, I dont think there is a single player out there that can solve our scoring problems. Thats because its not about the players anymore. Its the coaches and gm. We have the talent. Someone needs to come in and get them to play to their potential. Its a new NHL these days, where new rules have allowed speed and skill to dominate. The days of containment, left wing lock, and neutral zone trap are gone. We need management that understands this and a system that reflects it.

Malone is so not worth Johnny B.

It better be Malone + Brett Connoly.

That's even overpayment. I wouldn't even give up a pick past the 5th round for that guy. Let alone a roster player, or Hickey.

Two things, Lombardi going after Malone would be the icing on his stupidity sundae. Malone is an overpaid, oft injured, 20 goal scorer (which means that he would be a 12-15 goal scorer on the Kings). No thanks. Secondly, hasn't it been confirmed before that Malone won't waive his NMC to come to L.A.?

What this team needs is an influx of offensive talent and playmaking ability, or as I like to call them, "Non-Lombardi type players". Wasting assets on another big bodied "Lombardi guy" is both stupid and redundant.

And that's exactly why Lombardi will go after him. He loves his reclamation projects.

If Dean goes for Malone, I am even more done with him than I already am. Dude, what does it take to realize that size doesn't equal skill?

Malone would be so worthless. Guy is incredibly overrated and wouldn't help this team.

The Kings need to buy a finisher, someno who will score when given opportunity. They are creating chances but don't know how to finish.

You mean a pair of Moller's game used gloves up on eBay, right?

Jeff Carter’s no-trade clause is no more
Jeff Carter doesn’t have a no-trade clause, according to what Eric Francis said on Hockey Night In Canada’s Hot Stove. That echoes what Columbus Dispatch’s writer Aaron Portzline tweeted Saturday evening. Carter would have had a no-trade clause had he remained with the Philadelphia Flyers, but it didn’t transfer over when the Blue Jackets acquired him over the summer.

That removes a potential wrinkle as the Blue Jackets attempt to trade Carter, but the question remains: Who would take him? Carter’s turbulent and injury filled season might be just as good as a no-trade clause, especially seeing as whoever takes him will be committing to him through the 2021-22 season. That being said, he might turn his season around in a hurry if he can get away from the dead last Blue Jackets.

One thing appears to be certain: if Carter doesn’t get traded before the Feb. 27 trade deadline, it won’t be because he refused to leave Columbus.
