Cammalleri on the block?

From Rich Hammond of the L.A. Daily News:

Cammalleri’s name is being thrown around a lot, and I don’t think anyone is surprised by that. From talking to people involved, I would say that if a trade
happens with him, it will happen at or before the draft. It’s significantly less likely to happen after the draft. The Pitkanen rumors have been around. They have legs, as they say. The only problem with that is, they’ll had “legs” for a while and there hasn’t been a trade. General rule…the longer something is out there, the less likely it is to get done. And several other teams are poking around, looking at Pitkanen. But if you’re going to entertain yourself thinking up Cammalleri trade possibilities, think under-30 defenseman and draft pick.

Mike Cammalleri wasn’t happy with his arbitration ruling last summer and it appears he wants out when he becomes a free agent next summer. That is probably the biggest reason why the Kings are listening to offers for him. Personally, I’m a big fan of Cammalleri’s game and think he’d be a perfect fit on a number of teams’ top-six forward corps. Edmonton? Vancouver?
