Good for the Kings if finally true. Clears up massive cap space.

To a major contender like them, they'll take the cap space over almost anything with a guy like Smyth I would guess.

Im not sure how we got "rolled", the whole point was to dump Smyth's salary cap hit and send him back home where he wanted to go...if anything win/win

Precisely why it only cost a 6th and a 7th rather than a 2nd...

LA gains massive amounts of cap space "wasted" on one of the least productive players in the NHL for his play.

Now the Kings can get down to business on July 1. Lots of cap space to pursue more speed on the wing.

Good luck to Ryan Smyth. He was everything the Kings needed him to be in his two seasons with the club. Great veteran leader.

Lol some people just don't get it, its not about what we got in return its about how much cap space we just got rid of.

Good news for the Flames also IMO, they don't need another big contract, time for them to do a little rebuilding anyway.

Kings just got 6.25 million in cap space and budget space to drop on a younger player.
