    Or even guys like Oleksiak and Sheahan for trades next year.

    That said, if you wanted to read really hard into things... maybe Ducks suddenly looking to move Vermette.

    I didn't know that. I'm not up to date.

    I'm also not sure what Drozg has to do with our scouting thread. :laugh:

    When i saw LA had interest in Phil i remembered LA always scouting us last year.

    It never really made much sense last year considering both teams were buyers at the deadline.

    I wonder if JR has been talking to LA for a while about Phil and this why they were scouting so much last year.

    Phil was tearing it up in the season so i doubt he was even being talked about.
    Probably more Sheary or Cole.
    I know LA is trying to get faster and eventually acquired Reider.

    I remember we were speculating about Sheary at the time, but Kessel is plausible. Rutherford said we scouted both Sheahan and Oleksiak the season before when we had relatively little use for them iirc and, depending on which version of events you believe, its quite possible the Kings (and other teams) would believe there's a chance Kessel would be moved this summer anyway.

    Yeah, LA was scouting us almost every game for a while.

    We also were scouting LA and its minor league team.

    LA has been looking for a RW to play with Kopitar for a while now, Phil has been rumored in trade talks since last summer.

    It just makes a ton of sense to me that this is something JR and Blake have been talking about for a long time.

    You don't scout a team that much for a 3rd pair def or a 3rd line winger.

    Calgary was also scouting us a good bit, they also have a big need for a RW scorer.
