LA Kings looking at Markov

ESPN radio mentioned LA is looking at defenseman Andrew (its Andrei) Markov. San Jose and Colorado are also in the running for Markov's service. Its unclear if Bergervin will move Markov. Its believed that Kyle Clifford, Tanner Pearson and a 1st round pick is the asking price.

Louie Jean (some guy from sportsnet) said Colorado offered PA Parenteau for Rene Bourque. Bergervin said no and asked for Jamie Mcginn. Parenteau is not a grinder and Mcginn is. With the recent trade Raphael Diaz for Dale Weise, looks like the Habs are trying to get bigger and add grinders. I see Bergervin being interested in Clifford who has 5 points in 48 games this year.

that would be amazing ... but then again, didn't we just get a Kyle Clifford in Dale Weise? ...

Seems to me that MB is gearing up unofficially for a run at Connor McDavid

Tanner Pearson along with a first for Markov seems a bit high. Would love that trade.

They should absolutely create a bidding war for Markov just to see what they could get especially considering how generous GMs get around the deadline. If they don't move him though, and re-sign him, MB better improve the roster otherwise it's pointless to keep him and not really be a threat to win the East.

Thinking out loud here, but is O'Reilly untouchable now?

Cause if Colorado is interested in Markov, wouldn someone work a deal around O'Reilly. Would take more obviously, but Markov is an interesting piece for that team going into the playoffs.

Can you give more informations about Pearson? Looks like he's having an OK season in the AHL.

Why is everyone saying it's Markov for Clifford? Did you miss that the rumor is also including an NHL ready 1st round pick and another 1st round pick?

Not a bad return IMO. Kyle Clifford can slot into our third line, it makes bourque expendable. Then Pearson can be on our second line wing and a first is always nice to have. The reality is... trade your players while they still have value and bring the young guys up.

EDIT: Didnt see Pearson was in the AHL. Maybe not ready for second line duties yet.

I don't want MB to trade Markov. That would basically mean that we give up on the playoffs.

I doubt that we make any impact in the playoffs. I say we trade Bourque/Markov/Briere/Gionta and move on with the youth.

If they trade Markov, it sends the wrong message to the room and the fans.

To be honest, I don't know that much about Pearson and Clifford.

Previous reports talked about Toffoli for Markov.

Yay, let's trade all our skill players (expect Desharnais) for bottom line players.

Which are basically 2nd round picks.
Pearson was passed over in two previous drafts btw.

What message and what fans. The only message I get from trading Markov is that the team wants to get better and build for the future. I mean do the fans want to keep the same team and keep on losing forever.
