'In the days leading up to the Olympic roster freeze, there was growing anticipation Edmonton Oilers center Sam Gagner would be dealt to Los Angeles. TSN’s Bob McKenzie and Pierre LeBrun reported of ongoing negotiations between the two clubs, with Kings left winger Kyle Clifford mentioned as part of the potential return.

The deal failed to materialize, as Oilers management reportedly weren’t willing to absorb part of Gagner’s contract, worth $4.8 million per season. The cap-strapped Kings would have to shed more salary than Clifford’s $1.1 million to make the dollars fit. Doing so risks further weakening their depth.'

Edit: The Kings have since put Fraser on waivers and it has been speculated that it was a salary dump...
