The Kings don't need Westgarth for 82 games next season. Moreau may not be in the lineup for 82 games either, so it doesn't hurt the team by adding a proven depth forward.

Should all forwards be healthy, we're looking at a lineup of:

Penner-Kopitar-Williams
Gagne-Richards-Brown
Clifford-Stoll-Richardson
Moreau-Lewis-Parse

Spares: Fraser, Westgarth

I'm fine with this signing as the Kings needed some gumption on the fourth line.
Agreed BUT to start the season the Kings play Buffalo, NYR, Philly and the Blues...Wesgtarth will be in most of those games so I think we might see Richie or Parse sitting occasionally too, not just rotating Moreau and Westgarth.
