The actual number value going back to LA is $7.625M. They're also about to begin a rebuild, their team is literal dogsh*t. Bracco blew the AHL apart last year and the Kings get a 2nd Round pick for their troubles too. Zaitsev isn't sexy, but has shown flashes of being an NHL defender. Is it possible that getting out of the Toronto market helps him regain his rookie season form? And Marleau's for a year, with the possibility of a retain and flip at next year's deadline.
There's absolutely no expectation that the Kings are going to be good next year, and no reason as to why that won't be what happens next year. Take the picks and prospects, move on from the drama, and keep warm bodies in the lineup. This trade might actually make sense?</div></div>
So you decide to send Zaitsev from one ****ty defensive team to another and they aren't going to rebuild with Kopitar and Doughty still there, dont assume they are gonna do anything. Theres not a lot of incentive in that trade Bracco might be good, but not 5 years of Zaitsev for 4.5 and players can do really well on the ahl that doesn't always mean succesa in the nhl and u also need to pay Marner more money
