From The Horses Mouth

LAK’s pro scout, Rob Laird, admits this years UFA crop is limited, and that LA is looking to address goal scoring.  Hmmm, compete with multiple higher budget teams for a limited resource (high end scoring UFA), or trade for one of the top 3 wingers in the NHL, with a known (and manageable 7M/yr) contract.  One way you lose assets, the other, you may end up with nothin’, or a much more expensive contract.  LA is heavy with young talent, but thin on cash…

Seems obvious to me which direction to take.  And if it’s obvious to me…well, you know!
