Radio Row: Top 10 Midseason Kings Trades
Jeff Carter was acquired by the Kings last week from the Blue Jackets as part of a highly-publicized acquisition.  It was also the 279th trade in Kings history.

On June 8, 1967, the Kings acquired the rights to Red Kelly from the Maple Leafs.  That deal marked the first deal in franchise history.

Trades can happen at any time, whether during the off-season or during the season.  In this first edition of Radio Row, and in honor of Monday’s NHL trade deadline, club radio broadcasters Nick Nickson and Daryl Evans (KTLK AM 1150 and along the Kings Radio Network) offered up their “Top 10 Kings Midseason Trades”:

Note: these are trades that occurred ONLY during the season.

Discuss.
