It totally sucks for Moulson, who should be trying to prove his worth in the NHL, but it is the best move for the organization's developmental curve. Moulson brings a proven record, and familiarity to a disjointed team. Maybe it takes Moulson another year to make it, but his value to the Monarchs this year is much greater than that of the Kings.
Losing Ellis was a big blow. He would have given the Monarchs the veteran depth they needed, and be someone who could set the pace for the young players. To have a successful farm system, you need those players on the cusp of making it to set the tone of how the team competes.
Piskula is a spare part right now, and seems to be on a longer developmental curve. The Kings should swap him while he still has some potential for a veteran (24-27) left wing AHL prospect. I don't have any possibilities dreamed up, but it would rid the Monarchs of one too many defenseman, and fill a need upfront in many ways.
