A recent trade proposal has the LA Kings saying goodbye to two more veterans but hello to defensive help and top draft capital.

With Matt Roy and Sean Walker out of the lineup for the foreseeable future, the LA Kings have really scuffled lately, dropping their last three games heading into Tuesday’s matchup with the San Jose Sharks. As a result, Kurtis MacDermid is seeing second pairing minutes while some of the younger players are seeing expanded minutes as well.

It raises the question, if this trend continues, should the LA Kings trade off more veteran assets?

Under the modified 2021 schedule, the NHL’s trade deadline doesn’t come until April 12, with the regular season ending less than a month later on May 8. Might we see some teams make a move well before then?

Perusing the trade proposals on CapFriendly, I found one that piqued my interest involving a deal between the LA Kings and Colorado Avalanche.
