Moulson would be a good pickup for L.A. and help interject some offense into that lineup. Maybe LA's 1st in 2014 to Buffalo for Moulson?

2014 1st would be the minimum to pay for Moulson.

Possible Kings trade soon

Pretty reliable Kings source: https://twitter.com/mayorNHL/status/423223627887411200

@mayorNHL
Text just now says 'Something is brewing' with #LAKings ...sure seems that way.

Moulson would be a pretty nice fit there and could really help their scoring woes. Wonder what the cost, Vey/Pearson and a first? I'd assume more but idk

Certainly can only speculate as to what would be going back to BUF but the Kings (who traded their '14 second to BUF for Regehr last year) haven't traded their first 2 picks in any one draft in 31 years.

If they were doing it for someone like E. Kane or a young stud scorer, I'd get it..but for Moulson? It's very desperate for January. We'll have to see how it shakes down.

So what is Buffalo after? They probably aren't getting a top 4 d-man or a top 6 forward in return so what kind of prospects/depth players are they looking for?

I would gladly give Buffalo our first if they take at least one of Fraser/Clifford/Lewis.

Keith Jones called Moulson ending up with the Kings earlier in the season during a game between the Flyers and Sabres/Islanders(I don't remember if it was before or after the trade).

With his Brother in Law in net, Dean probably figures he'd have a good chance to re-sign him, so trading assets would make more sense for a pending UFA.

FWIW, Keith Jones is an idiot. I just wanted to write FWIW and say Keith Jones is an idiot. I chose to do it in the same sentence.

Possibly turning Vanek into two first round picks +. Pretty decent.

I hate titles like this, makes it sound like the trade has happened but is not announced yet. How about "Moulson on Kings radar" or "Moulson could be heading to LA"?

I figured the "speculation" tag would be enough, but perhaps not. Title changed

Even though they could use him now, I'm pretty sure he'll go there as a free agent anyway. Why waste assets when you don't really have to?

If it does happen and Moulson goes back to LA... I'd be so happy for him. Good guy, deserves everything he gets.

Probably because their PP is disgustingly bad. I don't know why as they have so many good pieces, but I think they want that PP presence.

They were on the PP for 9 minutes straight last night and were out chanced 3-2. Something has to give, and they have very good young pro players who would be good targets for a rebuilding club.

Plus, I think Moulson signs with whoever offers him the most money, don't you?

I was unaware Clifford had fallen so out of favour in LA. What happened?

If they could send Ott away for a 1st as we'll...they'll be ******** in tall cotton come June. That would be the proper way to rebuild lol. 4 1st rd picks. Ahhhhhh

Nah, I really think he goes to LA. Good fit on the roster and he'll be with his brother in law. Of course if someone offers him a crazy amount he should take it, but I think he'll give LA a big chance to sign him.

They do not need defense....

They will first ask for Toffoli


They likely cost will be a 1st + something else....maybe Vey, Pearson,Zykov...

They could also ask for Nolan (coach's son) + 2nd.

They could also do something like:

Moulson + LA 2nd '14 + LA 2nd '15 for LA 1st '14 + LA 1st '15 + young player
or Moulson + LA 2nd '14 for LA 1st '14 + Vey/Pearson +Zykov

the BIL thing makes it a very very good shot he resigns with LA
