Should the Kings trade for Rick Nash?

Nope.

Why/why not?

Makes too much money, isn't all that great.

Who should the Kings target?

Samuel Pahlsson, Ray Whitney, Paul Gaustad.

Why?

Whitney can score while Pahlsson and Gaustad would make the Kings even harder to score against.

So the Kings are going to waive Dustin Penner, right?

What? No. Don't be dumb.

Why/why not?

The Kings can potentially get more from a producing Penner than anything they could get at the trade deadline.

But I haaaaate him!!!

Don't care.

What about Jordan Nolan & Dwight King? Does their play make Penner irrelevant?

No. They're rookies playing off a high. They're a long way away from being established NHLers.

What do the Kings do when Jarret Stoll comes back?

If I were them, I'd put him as the 4th line center with Fraser moved to the right wing. I'd also waive Trent Hunter.

What are the chances anything you just said comes true?

0%

If you had to guess, who will the Kings add by the trade deadline?

Andrei Kostitsyn.

Will they make an impact?

No.

Will people be really mad at Dean Lombardi by the end of the year?

Yes.

Will he get fired?

He better not.

Prediction: Kings win, 3-1. Goals by Kopitar, Brown & Doughty.
