Kings Need To Find Some Scoring!

There has to be some scoring somewhere! Kings really lack it badly and need an influx from someone,somewhere. Seems to me like Sergei Samsonov is sitting collecting dust,he could help especially playing with ALoktionov where very few Kings forwards are clicking with him. Kings need help and might have to look at the trade market. WWolski use to score at a fairly good clip has been mostly in the doghouse with the Rangers could use a change of address.Maybe the Kings could send a conditional 3rd-4th rounder... Or maybe the Kings bring up some farmhelp,but that maybe isn't the answer because very few are good frontline LW talents and that's where the Kings lack badly. That and the fact that they can't win faceoffs when they need it(Canadiens game),measure up well against the big teams(SJ...) or the speed teams(Edmonton,Montreal...).Something has to give and maybe its time Lombardi pulls the trigger on a deal(maybe that's not good either since he's won few of them)...So the beat goes on and the Kings are playing at an average clip,beating most of the teams they should but losing to the teams they have too...most of the time anyways...The Kings rely too much on herculean efforts of their few stars to pull out victories when they need the whole team to pull together...

The Kings have no cap space to sign anyone. Penner or Stoll would have to go in any deal.

Is anyone going to give an upgraded player for those 2?

The kings do not need to make a trade or sign some random free agent. The Kings roster is stacked with some of the most offensive talented players in the world. TM has chosen to implement a defense first system that restricts the players offensive creativity therefore limiting their ability to score. Time will tell whether or not this is a good decision. They are playing playoff style hockey during the regular season and if they make the playoffs this style of play may prove to be key in making a deep playoff run. IMO, the biggest problem with this system is the fact that when the Kings are down they have trouble opening up the offense to get the game tied. If you cant come back after being down you are doomed to fail. They need to resolve that problem and the answer is not a trade or free agent signing. If any trade would help the Kings it would be TM for Babcock.

So the Kings need to add scoring without losing defense. They wont be changing the coach and they cant trade for anyone worthy nor call up anyone because they would lose someone to waivers and make a team just below them better. It looks like prayer is the answer

I'm concerned that over time management's commitment to such an extreme defensive system will significantly devalue trade assets, especially forwards.

The only possibility that I can think of and really isn't even then given his play is Semin. Semin for Penner and Stoll.

Semin and Murray together?

Thanks, I needed a good laugh.

How's his "dot-to-board" play?

Semin doesn't even do the Offensive part of his game Consistent or Well enough. That is what people should be concerned with.
