    What should Blake do with Iafallo?

    We need to open up top six spots for some prospects at some point, but also this team has said it wants to push for the playoffs and has turned a corner when it comes to selling off assets for futures.

    So I struggle with what the plan for Iafallo should be and put three options in a poll. I personally think it may depend what his contract demands are, but am leaning to dealing him.

    I called for him to get 30 pts! Don't get me wrong I like Vilardi but he's too slow and isn't a great skater! Peddle him while he's worth something,we have a lot of great skaters coming from the "Farm"?

    Most games? Has a an average of 40 pts per season for his career alongside Kopitar! Without Kopi,Brown's a 3rd liner and has had seasons where he was terrible,one of the reasons they took away the captaincy,that and he can't lead

    Can't wait until the deadline and the Kings get rid of the vets and let the youngsters get their well deserved chance at the Show!

    How many times during games where the Kings have the puck and they turn it over in the Offensive zone which otherwise would ended with LA scoring had we had two skilled complementary players to go with Kopi-Star! Its why we lose to the teams with the big "Guns"! We don't have enough top level talent/skill...Kubalik...maybe Byfield,Turcotte! Like Kempe with Kopitar

    I'd be putting Kempe, Grundstrom/Lias with Kopi and see what happens

    Stutzle is an 02, Vilardi is a 99

    It's a pretty big difference. Gabe looked great earlier this year, but he has been beyond awful for awhile now.

    Yes, absolutely, but when talking about point paces this forum has a really bad habit of lacking perspective.

    He has to play with Carter ans AA.
    Carter is a lost case. As soon as he gets the puck, he turns it over to the opponent.
    AA is a pug hog who doesn't, know how to pass or play with other players.
    Not exactly an environment to thrive for a rookie. Consider that and his point output looks like a miracle.

    I'm not really concerned with Vilardi's point production. The Kings have been an offensive black hole since the end of the Palffy/Robitaille era, even through their glory years there were regular season stretches where the team couldn't score. So it's hard to judge anyone based on offensive statistics.

    I am more concerned with the skating (major major issue) as well as the ability to play C effectively in the NHL (that will probably come with time).

    If you’re gonna say “he plays on the top line which is why he scores so much” you also have to take into account that the Kings’ offense is totally inept. On a decent team Iafallo probably puts up the same numbers from the second line.

    I highly doubt it. He plays the 20th most minutes among all forwards in the NHL and is glued to an elite playmaking Center in the NHL.

    Hopefully we trade him and find out which one of us is right.

    In an ideal situation he gets signed for a reasonable term and AAV. If not he will be moved and we will know in the next day or so. AI is not a problem on this team, the only real debate is around what his value is going to be in years 2,3,4... etc of that deal. In some respects I don’t care what he gets as long as it doesn’t affect the ability to start signing young players to new deals.Given the big names won’t be burning a year of the ELC this season it doesn’t really matter if they slightly over pay him as we’d have the cap room to do it.

    Given the flat cap I think his market value is affected and if he hits the market he won’t get what he really wants from a decent side. However, if we need to overpay by .5m AAV to keep him and make sure there is a solid structure for the young players to come into, it’s a ‘so what?’ and I would only move him if he’s asking for silly money.

    Maybe I'm alone in this, but I don't see a scenario where they get the nearly ready made player they desire (Top 4 LHD or Middle six LW) without adding to the deal themselves, so I would happily take a late 1st, and use it (along with other stuff) to acquire the above player in the summer.

    If he goes to a team like Toronto, he's playing with Matthews and Marner or Tavares and Nylander, so his production might even improve.

    AI is the kind of player east coast fans will say is great after finally watching him.

    He’s a solid player all around. Not a game breaker but underrated for sure.

    Not to mention being on team where there’s more than one defensemen that knows where the other team’s net is

    It's like Muzzin.

    NO way we give up even a 1st for a mediocre #3-#4 dman

    1 week passes

    lol stupid LA, "Is Muzzin the best defensive dman in the league?"

    Then everyone here will be bitching he's scoring 50-60 points for the Canes and lamenting the weird hole at LA's #1 LW

    Book it now beacause I'm just going to copy-and-paste "i f***ing told you so" hundreds of times
