    I'm not sure i'd call it a big miss, but i see your point. At this point, i'd say Blake is just looking to extract value from anywhere he can.

    At this point, the only reason you miiiight want cap space is if you're planning to take on a ****ty contract for picks. If that doesn't happen, then yeah... doesn't count for ****.

    Kings need picks/prospects not cap room.

    I think it's a salary dump, but if Thompson was just going to ride the pine the team may have wanted to do him a solid and get him on a playoff bound team. Thompson is trying to earn a contract for next year. The trade is a big deal for him if not us.

    Thompson was in Amadio's way. Absolutely no reason to bring him back on a new deal, therefore any upgrade is a good one.

    There isn't a single problem with this trade whatsoever. They swapped a 5th for a 4th. That's a good deal. Thompson is superfluous to this trade.

    Picks and prospect can only do so much. Kings need cap room just as much as prospects

    Not about this season, Blake traded a young former first round pick for An aging UFA... he better be able to flip Hagelin for something otherwise he lost Pearson a young former first round pick for NOTHING...
