<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PuckLuck_77</b></div><div>As a Kings fan, Zboril isn't the guy that LA would target, as the Kings have plenty of defensemen in the pipeline at the moment. To get out of any more picks, you'll need to include someone expansion draft exempt, preferably a winger. Maybe a guy like Jakub Lauko. If you aren't willing to do that, then don't bother adding in another player, change it to a 2021 2nd with a condition on "if the Bruins win the Stanley Cup or resign Toffoli, it becomes a 2021 1st". The 2020 1st is the price of getting rid of Backes, since the Bruins are so strapped for cash. I'd even retain on Toffoli to make it easier for the Bruins to make other moves at the deadline as needed, and up the pick coming back.
Toffoli + 2020 4th CAL
David Backes + Jakub Lauko + 2020 1st BOS + 2020 5th BOS
Toffoli ($2.3mil retained) + 2020 3rd LAK
Backes + Lauko + 2020 1st BOS + 2021 2nd BOS** Conditions on 2nd are it becomes a 1st if Toffoli resigns or the Bruins win the 2020 Stanley Cup.</div></div>
Lol, you are funny.
First, Kings D is pretty much barren after your top 2 and and your prospects are not that deep or special either.
Second, Toffoli is worth a 2nd and a mid level prospect.
This trade is pretty close in value. Zboril could be replaced by any number of prospects or Grizz. And the 20 5th should be a 21 3rd.
Otherwise we can keep Backes and give you fair market value for Toffoli, the 2nd and mid level prospect, and clear cap space elsewhere. 🤷🏻♂️
