A Question for you Kings Fans

As you can tell by the name, I'm what you'd call an alcoholic; aka a Leafs fan.  So all we hear about is who we are trading and what we can reasonably expect to get for them in return.

But right now, I'm more interested in the Kings, since you guys are in a place that you haven't been for a while.  There are many rumours out there about Dean Lombardi going after Kovalchuk and Lecavailer (but ultimately only getting one of the two).

Now the price that is being rumoured is something that I find to be extremely high.  So I'm wondering what the fans think of getting a player like that for what you'd have to give up.

The rumours I've heard for Kovalchuk include Jack Johnson, Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn + prospects and/or picks.

For Lecavailer, I've heard Johnson, Simmonds a prospect or two in and around the level of Teubert/Hickey and several picks.

Now, I'm a really big fan of the players that Dean Lombardi has assembled for this team.  And if I were a fan, I wouldn't be comfortable with Johnson or Schenn being traded.  In my books, Hickey should be available since you guys already have Johnson and Doughty.  Tuebert is a maybe, but I really like him.  Moeller can go too if it leads to the right player.  And that pretty much leaves just picks to be traded to get a top flight player.

So my question for you Kings fans is which one of Kovalchuk and Lecavailer do you prefer, and at what price?  And also if you are comfortable with a guy like Johnson or Schenn being traded to get one of those players.

This FanPost was posted by a fan, and it probably sucks and is dumb.
