Lmao that Quick Trade is horrible. Why would Ottawa give up that much for a past his prime goalie? Especially when we're going to be a bottom of the league anyway. Even if Ottawa did need him that's WAY too much.

I just don't think you can make 6 trades in the off-season, GMing irl just isn't as quick and easy as on nhl '19. I'd drop Duclair and Formenton from the Quick trade. But Ottawa also has Nilsson and Andy so I am not sure if it's goaltending they're hurting for. Quick probably wants to play for a contender too. Calgary, Columbus and possibly Florida aren't bad ideas. Calgary could give you Rittich in return I imagine.

Columbus probably would be a good option if Bob leaves to FA. Florida, IMO, won't be a contender unless they get Panarin and a good goalie (Quick, like u said, or Bob) in FA. Smith seemed pretty good at times in the playoffs for Calgary, but they could use a more reliable goalie, so you're right, Calgary might be a good option.

Arizona declines both trades, cant take on that much cap and just generally doesnt make sense. Martinez gets a late first at most, not a top 15 pick from a team going to rebuild. Again the quick trade makes 0 sense, rebuilding team like that wouldnt give up that many assets for an aging goalie. Carter trade seems decent, I think a smarter way to trade him would just be to retain salary and get actual value rather than giving up a 2nd with him, Carter at 2.6 mill has legitimate value and the kings can afford to eat a lot of cap, (you can do the same thing with the other players you gave up as well)

See, I appreciate constructive criticism like this.

Agreed 100%.

If the goal is to have fun and make trades all willy nilly, than just don't post it to the forum. The forum is for discussion, and simply saying "its just for fun" doesn't exclude you from criticism.

Not sure if its unrealistic? Here we'll tell you!

Fair enough. I personally think the discussion is what makes this fun, but to each their own

As a Kings fans, here are my problems with this:

Neither of the Arizona trades make sense for either team. The first one (DB+Anderson+Red) is a terrible trade for LA if it made sense. Anderson is a prospect the Kings would like to see develop in Ontario after captaining the WJ USA team. He's been a very pleasant surprise. Brown is coming off of 2 50+ point seasons in a row, and is the beating heart and soul of the Kings team. Those two aren't going to Arizona for some 25 point guy and a 5th round pick, that's terrible.

Blake Lizotte hasn't shown enough at the NHL/prospect level to be worth much, and Kovalchuk doesn't make sense for Arizona in terms of their rebuild/age group.

Martinez, as much as I'd like him to be, isn't worth a 1st rounder, due to his age. Probably a 2nd and a B+ prospect.

I don't know enough about the Ottawa prospects to even speculate on that, but I've NEVER been impressed with Anthony Duclair. I imagine there's a reason he's jumped around as much as he has. Besides, the Kings will look to get picks for Quick.

Carter is coming off of a terrible year where he had to rehab a tendon-tear. Two years ago, he led the team in points (2016-2017). My assumption is they hold onto him for this year, hoping he regains his health/scoring touch. He'll be looked at as a piece to maybe move at the deadline to a team that needs experience and scoring. Maybe Carolina? Florida? Hopefully somewhere on the East Coast.

Undervaluing Matt Luff a bit. He just put up 10+ goals as a rookie who didn't play for over half the season. I'd imagine he's worth a 2nd rounder.
