Scuderi doesn't look great right now, and this is exactly why. The guy is seeing 5 minutes more of ice time a game than he is used to, and with the very short camp the effect is noticable.
But... if Muzzin keeps his play at this level, I don't think there is any way the Kings extend Scuderi. Jake was all over the ice last night, and has been impressive. He's playing with confidence, making great reads, and is making the most of the opportunity. Take the savings from his contract, add that to Penner/Gagne, and you have cap space for a really nice top-6 guy. There is still $$$ left over to extend Greene and Mitchell.
