Team Explanation
Kopitar is signed long term, they have a highly touted center prospect in Turcotte already in the system, and it's fairly likely LA takes another center with their #2 overall pick if they take the 2nd best player available. Assuming these 3 things to be true, what would LA need to receive to consider moving Vilardi? What is their positions of biggest need to try to get back to contending while Doughty and Kopitar are still good players?

Looking for feedback from actual LA fans on what they think their team needs. Not looking to have a stupid conversation about value, I'M PURELY LOOKING AT LA'S POSITIONAL NEEDS!!!ONE1

    If I had to guess, something like Boldy+Sturm+PIT 1st should do. LA might have to add something here though.

    They're quite high on Vilardi.

    Position wise, they need pretty much everything lol.

    I guess I should have specified priority for positions of need. You typically don't draft #2 overall if you don't need a lot of holes on your roster filled. lol

    Brodin for Vilardi makes sense for both teams.

    I dont think LA has plans to trade Vilardi since we have been waiting for his since we drafted him and had been dealing with his back problems. Plus when he got called up before trade deadline he did actually quite well with the big club. Turcotte will probably see most of his time in AHL at first with some NHL time.
