The Los Angeles Kings' Dustin Brown is on the trade market.

The Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown is available on the trade market, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

It appears that the Kings are ready to rock the boat, having just acquired Jeff Carter from the Columbus Blue Jackets late Thursday night. And McKenzie speculates that the Kings are ready to move Brown, despite his offensive skills, because he is not the right fit as captain.

A regime change, if you will, which opens the door for Kings' Mike Richards to take the throne as captain on his second NHL team—the Philadelphia Flyers his first.

The Kings have struggled all season long to consistently score, and they currently stand 10th in the Western Conference at 66 points.

Trading Brown could open the door for prospects, and a new offensive talent for the Kings.

And a lot of NHL teams are very interested in acquiring Brown, including the Rangers, per McKenzie.

Who could blame them? 

With the flurry of Rick Nash trade rumors over the past few weeks, let's take a look at why the New York Rangers should strongly consider acquiring Brown if Nash remains too pricey for Rangers' GM Glen Sather's taste.
