Oscar Moller

Anyone think he'll ever play another game in a Kings sweater?

He MAY get a few games but I don't think he'll be a king for very long.

Nope. He'll get traded/waived and play elsewhere.

He's not playing bad over there. It is not impossible, but highly unlikely that he will ever play for the Kings again. I would absolutely wager that he will play in the NHL though.

It's gonna be rad when he lights lamp on another NHL team like Moulson. Ditto Bud Holloway.

Moller still has a chance since Dean endorsed his move to Europe. I would be shocked if he re-signs Holloway, he basically ripped him in the press when he left.

I don't think Moller will ever be an NHL player. He just doesn't have the skill set or hockey sense.

Holloway is currently 6th in the SEL in points scored (everyone ahead of him is older). He also leads Skelleftea in scoring. Too bad Lombardi mismanaged him as a prospect. I think it would be unwise to not try and bring him back.

How did Lombardi mismanage the guy?


He was next on the list to be called up last season when Williams went down..and that was pretty well known.

So they head into this offseason..and the guys agent calls and says, "Hey guys sorry Bud is going to Sweden." *click*

the team tries to call him and he never answers.

He turned 23 in March of last year and drafted late rounds in 06...I wouldn't call letting the guy grow in the AHL at the age of 21-22 mismanaging a prospect. He played only 2 FULL seasons with the Monarchs...


I'd call it developing a prospect.


What Holloway did to the management is what is ********. I swear.....some people will just take blind stabs at Dean Lombardi just to try and do it.

If you are going to whine about the guy, be reasonable...there are other more valid arguments then Bud ****ing Holloway.

Moller is waiver eligible and this team has so many guys they're trying to fit in the bottom six as it is. He won't be back.

Holloway messed up with going to Sweden. He had a very solid chance of making the Kings 3rd line when Simmonds was dealt.

Relax, I like Lombardi, I just think he overlooked Holloway as a prospect.

And there's nothing wrong with what Holloway did. He finished out his contract, and then made a career decision. These guys are putting their bodies at risk playing hockey for a living, a career ending injury can happen at anytime. He decided to do what was financially beneficial for him RIGHT NOW, as opposed to taking a chance on making the NHL.

I say Bud was mismanaged because Dean gave guys like King and Moller NHL time over Holloway, and because there was no need to burn the bridge once Bud signed in Sweden. If anything, it's probably good for his development. I doubt he was being seriously considered for a roster spot this season despite what Dean SAYS.

Nope, because this organization couldn't give two craps for speed on the wings

He's not slow, but Moller is not a fast skater by any stretch. He looks fast because he's small and moves his feet, but he doesn't have anything near top-end speed.

See, I'll come at it from a different direction. He looks slower because his first couple of strides are slow but once up to speed he will out-pace most.

Agree to disagree. I'd say he's comparable to Justin Williams as far as top speed goes. Williams isn't really fast, but he's not slow, either.

Yes. Until he is 27, depending on the new CBA.
