Vey, 1st, and Clifford. DO it.

Picture that for a moment.

Now picture Lombardi paying deadline prices for that.....

CHECK YOUR HEAD.

If you have Center ICE as I do.....ACTUALLY watch Gagner play.....
I watch a lot of gagner and actually think he has a fair amount of value to most club. However LA is not one of those clubs. He would be very redundant here, and would cost to bring him in.

How did Gagner even get brought up? Guess these really are desperate times.

Bob McKenzie has brought up his name as a possible name the Kings may be looking at. When you look at his numbers and the position he plays, it doesn't really make much sense, but hey, who really knows what goes on in Lombardi's head.

I'd rather take a chance on signing Simon Gagne. Dirt cheap and wouldn't hurt....

Thanks. Overpaid, small, soft, center from Edmonton. Exactly what we need Bob!

Until he does get hurt and the Kings are scrambling to find another option. We've been down that road before. Didn't work with him, didn't work with Sturm, and there are countless others we could name who we thought could help but didn't have much left in the tank when the Kings brought them in (like Ronning, Anson Carter, Corkum, Courtnall, etc.). Get someone you know who can stay here and help the offense, like a Jeff Carter, not some band-aid who's only hear for a couple of months then off to test free agency.

No thanks to Vanek. Not worth it for half a season.

Would gladly do Toffoli and a 1st for Gio.
Gio is a decent dman but LA needs all the scorers they can get. Toffoli is a sniper and has the tools to be a good one in the NHL.

Nope - that's a very risky move. Go all in for a Stanley Cup run..only worth it if you win it. Otherwise, your club takes a big hit.

I was thinking about Stoll/Clifford for Gagner. I'm kinda 50/50 on it..not really sure how much it helps us. Gagner does have potential, though.

Kings definitely need to add on offense. Mynhlttraderumors.com still mentioning DL ready to make a move for Vanek, Moulson, Cammaleri or Hemsky.

When Cammaleri was here in Mtl he wasn't appreciated by the players, more toxic in the locker room than anything else. LA doesn't need to have him back.

Cammalleri's always been one of those out for myself kind of guys...at least that's the image he puts out there. Contract dispute, jumping from team to team..total rental IMHO if the price is right.

I really, really, really don't seen Dean having interest in a single player from Edmonton outside of Taylor Hall himself.

Snow will hang on to him as a desperation move.

Fwiw.

@mayorNHL: @deaderhead28 VERY serious trade talks have been going on. Kings had one deal fall through. Two deals being looked at now, see prev tweets.

Yow.

Would love to hear what that was later on would be too painful to hear right now.

Lotta buzz around Sam Gagner. I really hated the idea before, but I'm starting to come around. "he's not a Kings player," which might be exactly what we need right now. But shrug, I don't want to overanalyze that one until it happens, because it seems like a very strange, out of left-field move (DLs style, eh?).

Most likely it was Vanek with NYI asking for Toffoli+ coming back.

I would bet on that.

Lombardi is not going to trade Toffoli for a rental, and Vanek would be a pure rental.

Snow was probably trying to catch Lombardi desperate, knowing he couldn't resign Vanek.

If I am a GM in the NHL right now, I am asking Lombardi for Toffoli in any deal for a top six scorer, knowing LA can't score.

A GM is going to get the low picks and roster toss away's he wants from ANY team. So why not try and gouge LA for it's best prospects.

Probably had AMart going the other way with pieces, but he got banged up. I expect AMArt in the lineup as soon as able to showcase him. DS isn't a fan for whatever reason.
