Kings exploring, won't rush trade

The Los Angeles Kings are looking around the NHL for trade options later in the season, and don't appear itching to pull the trigger just yet.

Kings GM Dean Lombardi and his staff are evaluating their options, which could include Gabe Landeskog or Matt Duchene from the Colorado Avalanche, as well as other players.

Multiple sources have confirmed to TFP that the Kings have had exploratory discussions with the Avalanche about both players, but nothing has materialized, to date.

The Kings are expected to continue to weigh their options, including calling up a player or two from the AHL, before acting on any trades prior to the March 1 trade deadline.

The Kings also have plenty of salary cap space to work with, given injuries to Marian Gaborik, who has returned, and Jonathan Quick, this season.

If a deal is worked out for either Landeskog or Duchene, and there are no guarantees the Avs pull the trigger on a move involving either player during the regular-season, the Kings would have to include one of defensemen Alec Martinez or Jake Muzzin as part of a package.
