The Los Angeles Kings have fallen off a cliff. They've won three of their last 17, pushing them to the brink of being out of the playoff picture altogether. In fact, things have gotten so bad that they've fired their head coach, Todd McClellan.

A major part of their slump was their offensive dry spell. Averaging 2.35 goals in their last 17 games, Los Angeles hasn't gotten anything going. The Kings could've used the likes of Elias Lindholm, where they could add more offensive depth to provide a spark. They'll need to make a big move at the trade deadline to get more scoring.
