Predict who goes at the deadline

I thought that this would make a good poll. It's just a fun exercise to see how close we get as a group and individually. We can compare at the deadline.

Instructions:
Select the players that you think will no longer be Kings at the deadline. Don't pick who you want to see traded! You're not making a wish list . Save that for another thread, please. Pick who you think Lombardi will trade.

Be sure to tell us who you picked, and maybe even why, so that we have something to discuss, as well.

I've listed only players who have been rumored or might be available, sorted alphabetically.

My predictions:

Blake + extras (Tukonen?) for Marleau

Cammalleri for Weber

Nagy for a pick

Willsie for a pick

Visnovsky, Preissing & Stuart stay right here.

Blake, Modry, Nagy, Stuart.

Picked mainly because they're all impending UFA's...I chose these over other impending UFA's because I think they have the more marketable skillsets.

Blake-Obvious reasons...The Kings could fetch a nice offer for teams seeking veteran defensive depth for the playoff run.

Nagy-No reason for the Kings to keep him at all and a lot of teams are seeking a top six forward, albeit Nagy would end up being a project given his streaky scoring (he doesn't even have 10 goals this year upon further review!)

Stuart-Could be a nice asset for a team looking for a blueliner, wonder when he'll find a long-term home.

Thornton-For a team looking for some veterans who can fight and add some teach toughness into the lineup, Thornton could be an intriguing player. Don't expect much more than a pick though.

Blake- he will get us the best return
Nagy- just isn't any reason to keep him and he might bring as much as a # 2 as we get closer to the deadline-there are a few teams that need a scorer and he did have that good game
army- some of the young teams in contention like st. louis could use a vet
willsie- for whatever so he is not in the kids way anymore

Lets see, I say trade everyone except Kopitar, DB, Patty O, Frolov, Handzus, Calder, Lubo, JJ, and Jason Labarbera. Outside of them, trade everyone and call up the prospects(Gauthier, Purcell, Moulson, Harrold, Kanko, Piscula, etc.) and see what they can do, give em a chance.

If I could edit my choices, it would be Stuart, Willsie, Thornton, Nagy..


As far as a wild care..

I'll say Cammy. The play of late has shown that the Kings can go on without him(blasphemy I know) and he can fetch a hell of a return so I wouldn't put it past Deano to put him on the trading block... or at least maybe fish him around first.

I picked Nagy and Modry. Nagy doesn't strike me as a managerial favorite, particularly in light of the fact that he was brought here in hopes of clicking with Handzus, and Modry is exactly the type of Brent Sopel type of defenseman that teams who are worried about injury depth trade for at the deadline.

I don't think the market for Willsie or Thornton will be strong enough to warrant moving them - I understand the "asset = asset" mentality that even a 7th round pick would be better than no return, but I also get the feeling Lombardi isn't the type of general manager who is overly concerned with loading up on minimal assets. I think he's more concerned with showing respect to his veterans (see the Conroy trade) with the "gained asset" being an improved image and desirability to prospective free agents than adding another late round pick. Cue Deeker and the "FILLERS AND STOP GAP" routine, and that's not entirely invalid, but I do get the impression that Lombardi is more concerned with his veterans behind closed doors than he is to the press, and I think that's a lot better than the reverse.

Stuart might get moved, but he's Lombardi's boy and if he keeps up his play I'll expect an extension. The guys with contracts for next year probably won't go anywhere. Preissing and Armstrong seem to be viable candidates but these are guys Lombardi signed (or extended) and I'm assuming that means they're guys Lombardi wants around for a while. If either is moved, it'll probably be in part of a larger deal we can't really foresee. I don't think Cammalleri gets moved before the draft, if at all.

Blake is Blake, and he'll do as he pleases. I don't know how badly he wants to win another Stanley Cup and I don't know how eager he is to help the franchise by way of using himself as a marketable commodity. With his NTC and apparent interest in only moving to a contender, he's likely taking some good offers off the table. Think of Atlanta last year; they were willing to overpay badly because they WEREN'T contenders before the deadline. If Detroit is the only team who needs a Blake-like defenseman and can be comfortably described as a contender before the deadline, then we're going to be operating much closer to their terms than ours. I also think that Lombardi might also have some pride, and won't move Blake at all if the offers are poor. I think back to Miller last year, or even Hickey at the draft; I refuse to believe nobody made an offer, but I do believe the offers made weren't particularly good. It might even be in the best interest of the team in the long run if Lombardi cultivates a reputation as a guy who won't make a deal for the sake of making a deal; it might force other GM's to make better offers knowing that Lombardi is liable to turn down a deal even if that GM is the only bidder. You might call that crazy, but there's a guy a half-hour down the freeway known for that sort of pride, and it's worked for him.

Just my two cents.

Blake = somebody will make an offer too good to pass up
Modry = seems like serious contenders highly value depth at defense
Nagy = at least a few teams will need more scoring and will hope he can provide it

All the guys signed for next year will probably stay put, at least until the end of the season.

Stuart will be re-signed, unless his requests are ridiculous. There is probably no market for Thornton or Willsie.

Nagy, Cammy, Modry for good returns, and Willsie is my hopeful to be moved regardless of compensation.

Blake and Nagy will go. Stuart should stay unless DL gets an offer he can't refuse. Cammy won't be traded until the draft.

Blake will get moved if teams think there is no other option on D. Still don't think we will get all that much for him.

I doubt anyone with a contract past this year gets traded. I guess its possible if there is a package dealt but if we deal individual players then I think it's just expiring contracts.

I voted for Blake, Nagy and Thornton. I'd like to add Modry. I doubt he stays unless nobody will take him.

I picked:

Blake - for reasons already discussed.
Nagy - because when Cammy comes back we won't need him (Moulson can fill his shoes just fine)
Willsie -because some team might be desperate enough to try and get him for their bottom six forward. (and if no, DL waives him to make room for some of the kids)
Stuart - because he is not current under contract next year, will fetch us a nice return, and DL already has an unspoken agreement that he will resign with us in the summer. (all little bit of Burkesque trickery here)

* and as a side note, DL brings up Cloutier who will hopefully get picked up off of re-entry waivers, and if not than DL is guaranteed no lower than the 2nd overall pick in the draft, which was his plan for this year all along.
