Kings still active on trade front

The Los Angeles Kings continue to be engaged in trade discussions with several teams with the trade deadline just one week away.

Kings GM Dean Lombardi and his staff have been discussing multiple options and have spoken with multiple teams about various possibilities.

The Kings have been linked to several players, including Dallas Stars left wing Patrick Eaves, Detroit Red Wings left wing Thomas Vanek and defenseman Brendan Smith, and Colorado Avalanche left wing Gabriel Landeskog and right wing Jarome Iginla, among others.

The Kings have also scouted the Toronto Maple Leafs lately, with Lombardi taking in a game last week and VP of Hockey Operation and Director of Player Personnel Mike Futa attending Tuesday night's game; Futa also scouted the Leafs' AHL affiliate, the Marlies, on Monday.

The New York Rangers have also scouted the Kings and their AHL affiliate extremely heavily the last few weeks, with multiple scouts at several games.

Lombardi is believed to be willing to shake up part of his roster, with the likes of forward Dwight King and defenseman Alec Martinez available for the right price, multiple sources have told TFP, while young blueliner Paul LaDue, now injured, and recent call-up Adrian Kempe generating plenty of interest.

It's unclear if the Kings are closing in on a trade, but talks are likely to pick up steam over the next seven days.

The Kings also have plenty of salary cap space to play with, some of which will be reduced when goalie Jonathan Quick returns to the lineup.
