Drew Doughty, Rob Scuderi, Slava Voynov, Alec Martinez, Matt Greene, Davis Drewiske, Jake Muzzin

Jonathan Quick, Jonathan Bernier

Anze Kopitar, Willie Mitchell

If Kopitar returns, the Kings will probably assign one of Nolan or Stewart to Manchester or trade Richardson to make room.

When Mitchell returns, Muzzin will be back in Manchester, or they could possibly move/waive Drewiske.
I believe Muzzin has to clear waivers as well.

Frankly I'd waive Richardson or Drewiske before I waived Muzzin. Richardson was crap most of the year last year and both are UFA's after the season. Keep Muzzin as the #7 when Willie gets back.

Nice to see this kid develop. If he has a big year in Manchester I assume he'll be replacing Gagne or Penner in the line up next year.

As for Bodnarchuk, no big loss. This was expected. Hopefully he clears because Manchester needs the bodies.
