At first the shock of the trade hits you and you are stunned that Schenn has been traded. But Schenn may never become what Mike Richards already is and Richards is a clear upgrade over Stoll at the #2 center position. Richards > Schenn and Simmonds wasn't going to be much more than a 3rd liner with a 20 goal season here or there. The 2nd isn't important because the Kings have more prospects than positions for them.

Dean still has a lot of defensive prospects that he can move for a 3rd liner to replace Simmonds. I wonder how Doughty's negotiations will go now that his room mate and "best" friend has been traded.

I wonder who Dean is looking to replace Smyth with in the lineup now that Schenn is gone.

What does Dean do with Loktionov now that Kopitar and Richards are signed to long term deals? Loktionov is not a 3rd line center.

Maybe Stoll on the 3rd line and Loki on the 4th?

I might be in the minority, but I don't think we need to sign anybody from outside

Penner - Kopi - Williams
Smyth - Richards - Brown
Poni - Stoll - Parse/Richardson
Clifford - Lewis - Kozun

Of course, Kozun'll probably be on the top line after a month of so I think it can work. I think Poni/Parse having a chance to prove themselves would be good, Poni played great for us this year, better than he did for Pitt. And I think Parse could be a great 3rd liner.

And I love Kozy

Can Richards play wing?

He's a north/south player. It would be nice to have some creativity in the top 6.

Penner-Kopitar-Williams
Richards-Loktionov-Brown

Great trade. It hurts to see Schenn and Simmonds go, but Richards is going to bring alot to this team. Wow, deep at every position now.

Penner - Kopitar - Williams
Smyth - Richards - Brown
Parse - Stoll - Moller
Clifford - Richardson - Lewis
Westgarth - Holloway

Kings finally have the depth to run 3 scoring lines, and a solid shutdown line. There is plenty of grit, speed and skill in this lineup and combined with a top 3 defense group and a great goaltending tandem this team is a legit Stanley Cup contender. I would not put them with DET, VAN, SJS as favorites to win the West next year.

When I get home, I'm going to offer Schenn and Simmonds for Richards in NHL11 and see if the computer makes the trade.

Edmonton people are saying Smyth trade is close.

Penner-Kopitar-Williams
Parse-Richards-Brown
Clifford-Stoll-Lewis
Clune-Richardson-Westgarth

For now....Kings will want to replace Simmonds grit.

Great trade! A Kopitar/Richards 1-2 punch is a frightening prospect. I always like LA and you guys will probably be favourites next year. Congrats!

According to all reports it's still likely Smyth gets dealt. If so I think DL will still try to get a LW in free agency.

LoL, you want Richards to move over and play wing for a kid who has barely played in the NHL, proven nothing except to be injury prone? Loktionov better learn how to play wing or play more physical, because 1-2 center slots are locked.

Seems like all my favourite players end up Kings one way or the other.

This trade blows me away more than the Carter one, Richards is a monster. I'm very jealous of Kings fans right now.
