As a kings fan I agree with this. It has taken me some time though as I was a huge Simmonds fan and was big on Schenn. I use to cheer for the Flyers in the East, since the trade I do even more so.
So as a result it is a win-win-win-win.
LA: Got franchises first Stanley Cup
PHI: Got a tonne of depth and different attitude. Plus was able to get what they had hoped was a star tender (this year is playign a lot better with a beat up D infront of him)
CBJ: Recived a 1st round pick in a deep draft, a top line defenseman
ME: Recieved a team to cheer for in the east.
