Probably Robyn Regher I would think
I think Regher has a NMC that he waived to go to LA...

Regehr would make a whole lot more sense than Matt Greene, but something tells me we're going to be disappointed.

His new contract for this season and next has no NMC or NTC.

There isn't really anything we could get back for Gaborik that would disappoint me.

I hope it's something good, because our division is getting a whole lot tougher. Sounds like St.Louis to NYR is close too.

I don't really think we should be looking to get better directly in a Gaborik trade. He just doesn't have that value. We should be looking to get assets to help us trade for a better player. IMO.

If we can unload Gabby for some d and pick up more offense I'll be happy.

Had a concussion in January and hasn't been playing lately.

Would be more than a little disappointed if he is our add on defense.

For the love of God, why are the Kings acquiring another RW? The LA Kings have a deep (read: overloaded) RW segment of the roster, and this is not helping.

Can the LA Kings just acquire another LW instead?

I'm not deadset against moving him, but why for defense? We have 2 solid dmen out and we're back filling pretty damn well imo.

I'd rather get a 1st round pick.

Fans get so damn hung up on this. Usually there is someone in your lineup that can move over to the left side. Are you telling me none of the Kings wings are capable of shifting what side they play on?

Is it safe to assume that its LA or no one for Gabby, or could another team get him before a deal with LA is finalized?

Could be that the injuries to Murray and Tyutin are high ankle sprains but not disclosed to avoid weakening our leverage. Erixon, a guy we would normally call up, is also injured.

good point

So the next callup in case of injury would be a big drop in skill level, ok that makes more sense, but I'm still leaning towards the future vs the present. A draft pick would be nice.

That is not the question though. It is why trade him for an average or worse defender? Just trade him for the best assets you can get and make another trade for a defenseman.

unless the pieces we trade him for are used for another trade for an upgrade elsewhere?

TSN seems to think LA has soured on Gaborik.

LA is now said to be exploring other options, 5 scoring wingers available per NHL Network

I didn't take it that way at all. I took it as, they never made a trade for Gaborik and are still thinking about who they want to trade for. It is all about trying to get a team to lower their asking price. They are probably trying to get Columbus or another team to lower their price.

Sounds like we have an offer from LA, but it isn't very good.

No need to just give Gabby away. If LA is lowballing, Jarmo is playing it right.
