Moulson was doing fine he had 4 goals and 2 assists in his first 12 or so games with the Kings... Then the COACH started throwing him into situations(mainly a checking forward that isn't his game) where he couldn't play his game and then he lost some confidence and got another goal in the next 10 games. COACH lost confidence in him and gave him another 7 games and at that time the COACH decided that Moulson could be replaced by Purcell who was coming off a decent showing. Then the COACH did the same thing he did to Moulson to Purcell and Purcell got traded for a player that COACH felt was of need. Coaches play just as important roles in roster players as GM`s... There input is very important to GM`s and in this case DL took what TM said and made a decision he thought was right.
Cammy was a totally different case altogether. Cammy went through a nasty arbitration with DL and the Kings, Cammy was very unhappy with the outcome. In my opinion DL had to trade Cammy or else he was going to loose Cammy for nothing anyways. I don't think Cammy would have stayed and if he did stay I don't think the Kings would have been comfortable paying him 6 million dollars a year because he wasn't even close to that at the time. And anyone that says they rather have Cammy for a 6 million cap hit, 2 years older, 7 inches shorter and far more one dimensional then Nash for 1.8 million less is out of there mind. Not to mention Nash is feared enough in the league that teams would focus more on him to make more room for other players. Cammy doesn't have that quality. On top of that if the Teubert project worked out nobody here would even say a peep about Cammy lol.
