I want one of your best players. Our best players are off limits.
Don't know how you can expect to get something done when you say that and the Kings are not rebuilding...
That's like someone saying we want Letang but everyone except our 3rd/4th liners and 3rd pairing Defensemen are off limits.
And Brown would be a great fit for Pittsburgh but the only way I'd see a trade sending brown to the penguins would be for Neal and the Pens would likely still need to add as Brown is their captain and they would be reluctant to trade him.
Silly of me to think LA fans could have a trade discussion. Must be the Cup Hangover.
I bet if you made a reasonable proposal they would discuss it with you but what you did was say you want their captain and any player who is on par or even a little below par on the Penguins is off limits.
You should know that is the best way to get a people annoyed.
How would you feel if people proposed that the Penguins deal Neal to them but you can't have any first liners, second liners, top pairing defenders or starting goaltenders because that is almost what you did.
He's also the type of player every team wants, good mix of skill/size, strong defensive play, good leader.
I cant really think of any trade that makes sense for both teams. LA isnt looking to take a step back, so you cant even tempt them with some highend futures package (Morrow++). Pens obviously arent moving Crosby, Malkin, Letang, or Neal.
