Goalie Depth

We have it.

Thought experiment: trade Angelo Esposito, Ondrej Pavelec, and perhaps some future draft picks as well to the L.A. Kings for the number two pick. Use our #2 and #3 spots to draft Zach Bogosian AND Nikita Filatov. No? Alright, fine: revel and be glad in the fact that your team has the greatest netminding depth (or, looking at it from another angle, greatest excess of trade possibilities) since the Kiprusoff-Nabokov-Toskala era of the San Jose Sharks.

All of these considerations are secondary to the fact that I just love that Moose.

Very interesting. The Kings have been weak in goal forever. Not sure how to judge if that is too much to give up for a #2 pick.

How about taking both Doughty and Bogo? That is what I would do.

Or if you are a gambling man, trade Kari and you might get a better return since he is somewhat established.

I'm too dumb to know what to do, but I do know we have options and that is never a bad thing!

Screw you for beating me to the Moose post.
