When he and Miller were paired together, I thought that was arguably the best shutdown pairing I've seen for the Kings ever. You paid when you played against those two. Ask Forsberg.
It's to bad the mega-deal that sent him to Dallas amounted to a bunch of nothing for us. It'd have been nice if one of the guys we got from that deal was a key cog in the cup win. Would have been cool to say Matty helped us get the cup in some way
Johan Franson, Jaroslav Modry, Wayne Simmonds, Bryan Cameron, and Colten Teubert for Konstantin Pushkarev, Mattias Norstrom, Sergei Korostin, and I'm not sure what Dallas did with the other pick (4th round 2007)
Whole lot of nothing anywhere in that trade for both sides beyond Simmonds.
