What players who have exercised their rights to ask for more money have been a victim of smear campaigns and moved for trash? Visnovsky wasnt a victim of a smear campaign and moved for trash, O'Sullivan wasnt moved for trash and hasnt been the victim of a smear campaign. Cammy wasnt moved for trash and I havent read anything that suggests a smear campaign against him. So who exactly has been moved for trash and been a victim of a smear campaign after asking for more money? And every player coming up is underpaid? Who would that entail? Only Brown and Frolov are young guys not on ELC's , one of them signed his deal 4 years ago, before DL was even a thought, and one signed a cheap deal before he had a breakout year. So who exactly are the young up and comers, not on ELC's who are underpaid.

Look at those injuries and then look at the amount of time missed for those injuries. That is his entire career. He has been labeled as a guy who doesn't like to play unless he's 100%.
DL always bashes his players upon trading them. Just because he masks his words with lawyers speak doesn't mean he is not smearing them. DL took alot of heat from NHL people because he broke a code and let everything that took place at Cammy's arbitration hearing out to the media. He also said Cammy was a distraction in the locker room (which every other King adamantly denied). This is after the year before he called Cammy a future captain and team leader who is well liked by all.
Last year DL said that Sully was a staple on the team because he was willing to sacrafice scoring to play defensively. "Buying into the system". On the intermission highlights last year they showed Crawford using Sully as an example in the locker room. This year after the contract negotiations DL repeated talked about Sully needing to "buy into the system", and "needs to put the team as number one priority".
There was similiar questions aroused in the handling of Blake this offseason.
In regards to the players coming up being underpaid, I ask you to find one (besides Kopitar , who as I mentioned had different circumstances) who has come up and stayed on the team after getting paid? You won't find one because if they don't take the team discount they are moved. It was Cammy's and O'Sullivan's right to take the team to arbitration and ask for as much as they can.
