    Just curious, but what leads you to believe this? From what I've read he was willing to come but his team would not release him to join the Kings without compensation (2017). Seems like a pretty poor trade to give him up for a 5th once his was no longer under contract and free to come over.

    I'm not familiar with that, but he was traded to Chicago in 2019. My understanding (largely from posters on hf) is that he wasn't interested in signing here so they traded him.

    As if everyone knew how good he would be...the worst case scenario would be if he walked for nothing. What Rob did was a minimum requirement for a pass for asset management, but trading a former 7th rounder at nearly 24yo without a game in the NHL for anything more than a 5th rounder would require a cunning veteran of a GM.

    Regarding Kubalik, who scored his 21st goal yesterday by the way, he was only eligible for an ELC. He's earning $925,000 and is an RFA at the end of the season. This is the same contract that Prokhorkin signed. Kubalik wasn't in a position to hold out for something else. He just wasn't interested in the Kings. He did not come to the developmental camps. I've read over at hf that his agent reps other players in the Blackhawks organization who are his friends and he wanted to end up there. So they got what they could for him. Obviously not a great return, but they had no leverage.

    It's a real shame. But sometimes the same situation works for us. Muzzin and Petersen are both players that never signed with the teams that drafted them and we got them for free.

    Another thing to consider going forward is that Petersen will not be waiver exempt next year. So you have to pencil him in on the roster. That makes trading Campbell almost a necessity.

    Is anyone hearing about the Leaf being interested in Martinez and what would be coming the Kings way.

    Not recently. Originally, Montreal seemed to be high on him but then he hurt his wrist. Given the injuries and his time with Muzzin (going to AHL on rehab assignment), it would not surprise me if there is some interest from the Leafs.

    Only from Bobby Margarita but he tends to tweet drunk.

    Per Lebrun
    Toff and Lewis expected to move of our UFA's
    Less teams happy with Amarts performance post injury.

    Forbort, Clifford and Hutton will likely not have a market.

    Assuming Lewis will top out at a late 2nd rounder?
