Reports over here was that it was a money thing and that the offer from the Kings was reportedly below the going rate. PLayers have options and he used all his options. Kings can be pissed as much as the like, but from his perspective his last two years on the farm, he saw all his linemated and other teammates ge recalled and he did not get s niff.

25 years old and not a single NHL game and he saw that the kings added more fwds (before he went to Europe) and decided his future was elsewhere

He is getting more money playing in Europe then he would have gotten on the farm
