Who do you see the Kings signing in the Summer?

Which Free Agent Player do you think the Kings will go after this summer? Is there enough cap space to sign an all-star? Or a top 6 forward? Thanks!

I don't really know who's available, but obviously some kind of talented LW'er. I could also see us trading Bernier at the draft to the Islanders for said LW'er, or any one of their other young players from their ripe prospect pool (Nino would be nice, Strome out of reach)....

I think a LW comes back from the Bernier trade. But trading Bernier means they need a backup goalie. Theodore mahybe? I know there are others but his name I know is out there.

Definately Voynov!!
UFA depends on buy out. I wouldn't be surprised if we go after Ville L if Buffalo buys him out. We need a LW.

Not enough cap space to sign an all-star, we would need to trade Bernier and maybe Martinez for top 6 help and trade or sign a backup. We also need to find a spot for Toffoli and possibly Pearson. We are not making a big splash in this year's UFA market.

I think it's gonna be Jagr on a 1 year deal similar to what he signed in Dallas. Really not much out there and the Kings are gonna have to pay those RFA's. Replacing Penner with Jagr would be a huge upgrade (insert fat joke here).

Not gonna happen. He's awful, and folds like a cheap suit when anybody comes near him. Not a physical bone in his body. Having suffered thru his FLyer days, you don't want him. He's 100% NOT a sutter player. And terribly overrated with a capital O.

Looking at the RFAs, most (Lewis, Nolan, Clifford, Martinez, Ellerby and Muzzin) will command around $1M, maybe Lewis and Martinez get $1.5M. Voynov though could very easily get $4M-5M if it's a 5 or 6 year deal.

My guesses (cap hits)

The Kings have cap speace of $14,652,273

and need to sign

RFA-
Cliiford - $1.3M
Lewis - $1.5M
Nolan - < $1M
Voynov - $3.5M
Martinez - $1.8M or traded
Ellerby - < $1M
Muzzin - $1M or traded
Bernier(probably getting traded....but) - Definitely traded, otherwise an offer sheet target, IMO. Kings can't trade him if they match.



UFA-
Penner(I know) - bye bye
Scuderi - Retained, $4M
Regher - Retained if Mitchell is still out - $4.2M

Other moves might need to be made to accomodate.

edit: I didn't look these up so I'm not sure if any are below QO for the RFA's

Agreed, and is awful defensively so Sutter would likely kill him.

Sutter: Thanks for signing me a #2 LW, Deano!

Dean: Darryl, why has Leino been a scratch for 82 games?

A LW with a netfront presence would be big. That is what they need out of Penner right now and probably why he wasn't moved. Under Murray they had two guys that could get to the front, screen the goalie and chew up space with Smyth and Handzus. They could stand to get that, more consistent traffic, although that seems to be a dying art with guys like Knuble, Holmstrom, Smitty, et al getting pretty old and even retiring.

If there is a good value on defense, that's always a good signing, but is there ever really one on the open market?

Not so much an urgent need but it's time to start thinking about a top-six winger long term. Maybe it's Toffoli, maybe it's someone else. You look at their top six, Penner is a likely departure right now, Williams quite possibly either in a year or two more when his deal expires. Between that and the versatility of guys like Brown and Carter, a winger on either side seems lke a good move if the right guy is there. But personally I think Toffoli will get a chance to play considerable minutes next year and a role guy with a big body will chew up the balance of the minutes.

Sorry, wasn't directed at you, I don't know any better about Leino. Was just piggybacking off the Flyer fan commentary about his defensive/physical play.

I dont think we have the cap space to chase anyone that would be an upgrade, yet I also don't see us just 'replacing' Penner with Toffoli due to completely different skillsets--next year we'll likely see some promotions from within to keep costs down due to the cap, too. It's tough to say, honestly--I'm gonna go look thru our depth chart and at some UFA lists

By the time we resign VV, Muzzin, Lewis, Clifford, and Scuds we probably wont have any money left over lol

I think it will be a very quiet year for us in the UFA pool.

I see JB and Martinez being packaged off for 2 picks or 1 pick + prospect.

Kings need a big LW unless they plan on keeping Toffoli at LW with Richards-Carter.

I would think Brendan Morrow is a guy they go after. Character guy.

Priority #1 will be re-signing Regher and Scuderi, or replacing them. Lombardi doesn't even think about signing a forward until his defense is completely settled.

If Bernier does go to NYI, I expect this guy as part of the return package



I think he has a lot more upside than people think and can be a 15 goal type guy. And he'll do anything to win. Plus I know he has Johnny Utah's minimum fighting standards met usually by the 10 game mark of the season, so he's a shoe-in
