Simon Gagne

Gagne does not fit well with Sutter and although he is healthy he is not being used, as a result (although I like him) I would like to see the kings ship him out for some veteran depth defense.
So far this year he has played in 11 games and has 5 assists.

Not sure what the Islanders would need but maybe Lubo?
I could see him fitting in with the Penquins but I am not sure what they have to part with that could be useful to LA.

What do people think he would be worth and bring in?

I don't think Gagne at this stage of his career has much value. As to what LA needs, a healthy body on defense who can play a regular rotation is what they need most right now. Preferably a defenseman who is solid in his own end and can connect with a tape-to-tape pass to his D-partner or to a breaking forward.

That Kaberle contract doesn't sit well with the Kings. Had he been signed to a one-year deal, maybe.

I agree with this. I do like the 3rd though.

We need defensemen, we're not trading defensemen. And right now I wouldn't give you Martinez alone for that pile.

Swap that 3rd out for Muzzin and I'd say deal.

Man I really hope DL makes this sort of move. Niskanen would be great!

That is an awfully high price to pay for a guy that hasn't been durable for five years (has averaged 52 games per year during that span); is aging and is a pending free agent. You don't trade a top pairing D guy in Pittsburgh for that.

Kings are better off holding onto him as a 13th forward, then trading him for scraps

Hamrlik or Poti for Gagne. Both are on expiring contracts.

Depends on the scraps. He is not being used so if we can get a semi-decent prospect even it maybe worth the risk. That is not what I would like but it maybe something.
I would even take a deal involving Sarich. As a fan of Gagne I want to see him playing. As a fan of the kings I want to see good asset management.

Nope, Kaberle's contract is trouble. There is an offer with Karberle and a 3rd above and it was answered exactly the way the Kings see things by ziggy.

I agree. If we could get a second and a 5th for Gagne and Richardson I would be very happy.
