Two Trades To Think About

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

- Wild card trade possibility for Bouwmeester–LA Kings. They could have cap room if they don’t bring back Dustin Penner. No IF about it, Penner won’t be there next season.

- The team that’s in full scramble mode coming to the trade deadline is Carolina. The Hurricanes are dying for a defenceman, so Ryan Whitney has to be in the picture there, too, if the Edmonton Oilers trade him at the deadline.

The Kings certainly do need a top 4 defenseman with Greene out for the year and Mitchell probably as well.  Bouwmeester would fit that need.  But regarding Penner coming back next year, we thought he wasn’t coming back this year.  His performance in the playoffs earned him a new contract and based on last night it looks like he’s turning it on again.

Can the Kings make some moves to fit someone like Bouwmeester in?  Sure.  I could see them moving Justin Williams or Penner, and there’s always Bernier.  But will they do it?  I’m not sure….
