The Kings could have probably acquired a cheaper alternative, perhaps a FA to be or atleast someone with a shorter term on the contract.

Or what they really should have done is just paid Marian Gaborik, he would have scored 50 goals last year on our team, our elite scoring winger problem would be solved, Quincey and JJ would be our 2nd defense pair and the team would be a lot closer to the Cup and still well within the cap.
Gaborik isn't that presence the Kings needed in the locker room and won't pay the price for those dirty goals Smyth scores.
Gaborik wouldn't have made Kopitar better like Smyth did.
