In other news, Matt Moulsen now has 21 goals

This team is in SERIOUS need of scoring, and now the discarded Matt Moulsen has scored 21 goals for the Islanders. How would another (?!?!?) 20 goal scorer fit on the Kings right about now?

I've heard all the K-AD talk: "he didn't fit TM's or DL's system, he had his chance here, he didn't have the tattoo" - whatever. (who DOES have the tattoo?)

Obviously, the NYI staff saw something in Moulsen that the Kings management and/or coaches did not. Or they were able to develop something in Moulsen that the Kings couldn't.

You wanna look at team records? Right now, both teams are out of a playoff spot.
The future: wouldn't the Kings future would be much brighter adding (keeping!) a 20-goal scorer?! And quite honestly, the NYI have built up a very strong group of young talented players - including Moulsen.

Moulsen will likely wind up with 27 - 30 goals for the season. That is a young discarded ex-Kings player? Yes.

This is easily one of DL's worst blunders (there are several to choose from).

He wasn't discarded. He chose to leave as a UFA.

When DL didn't even offer Moulsen a contract, choosing to leave as a UFA got much easier.

Just wasting your time.

Will get the usual "wasn't a DL type of player" or "wouldn't fit in Murray's system"

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me what a "DL type of player" is. So far I have only heard the term "DL type of player" when saying someone isn't one which we have heard about Moulson, Boyle, Cammalleri, Hemsky, Visnovsky, Frolov.

Also gotta love the first reply..yeah who cares about a player we chose not to tender who currently has more goals than anyone on our roster, just a classic response.

I'm pretty sure they talked about it, but the Kings couldn't offer Moulson what the Islanders could; a roster spot. So there was no point in DL making a formal offer.

And who's fault is that?

The Kings obviously had a pretty talented asset that they totally missed the boat on.

So it's a one-way street, we can give him praise for finding Wayne Simmonds and Loktionov but it's not his fault when he totally crapped the bed on Moulson who is likely on his way to his second straight 30 goal season and the Kings are on LW'er #9 this season for Kopitar.

The Islanders are 10 games under .500, I could care less if he scores 30+ goals on a bad team.

Wouldn't an extra 21 - 30 goals help the Kings get into the playoffs?

So you wouldn't want Rick Nash or David Booth either?

The Kings have used how many people on Kopitar's LW this season?

He wouldn't have 21-30 goals with the Kings.

It's easier to score goals when the pressure of the playoffs are gone.

Don't worry, they said the same thing about Mike Cammalleri at this time last year

"He isn't a big game player"

They stopped saying it after the 2010 playoffs.

This is easily one of DL's worst blunders (there are several to choose from).
In other news, Noah Clarke is playing in Germany, Lauri Tukonen is in Europe somewhere, Konstantin Pushkarov was an AHL flop now in the KHL and Dany Roussin is gooning it up in Quebec. Guess DL should have kept them too, just in case the light finally came on.

Not everyone pans out and there is the odd player that leaves a team and lands on another and lights it up. Don't forget Pittsburgh also gave up on Moulson too, so it's not like DL had a brain cramp here. The best example is Martin St. Louis, who was let go by Calgary, only to win a scoring title in Tampa Bay. $h!t happens.

Revisionist history is awesome, because the teller, in this case you Butch 19, is always right. All I know for a fact is that the current LA club is a lot better than the one we had when Moulson was here, so for as many blunders as you claim DL has made, he's clearly made more good decisions.

I'd also question how good this decision would have looked for NYI if they didn't have basically a free for all of ice time when Moulson joined last year, unlike in LA where we at least had some established wingers gunning for top six ice time and had just traded to get Ryan Smyth as well. If Moulson doesn't land on Tavares' win, does he get 30 goals? Doubtful. And what other team in the NHl could offer Moulson that kind of ice and opportunity? None, just NYI.

Who's fault is it that the Kings couldn't off Moulson a roster spot? Uhh Moulson's? He was given plenty oof opportunities to take over a roster spot and failed. He went to long island and played for a really crappy team, big deal.
