Yes he was on IR. Retroactive.

I'd waive Richie because I doubt there'd be much of a market for a guy whose played the way he has. If we could trade him, great, but I'd be surprised.

Colin Fraser basically took his spot.

Should have sent Clifford down to learn some poise with the puck

Looks like Moreau's veteran experience wasn't wanted by 29 other teams...again.

why would 29 other teams pass up veteran leadership?

He cleared waivers, so its likely he will be released. Then he can sign as a free agent with anyone else...probably for less money.

I don't think it works like that. For one, he is over 35 so I believe his money counts towards the Kings Cap hit regardless if he is on the LA roster or in Manchester and secondly, he is making $600k, you can't get much lower than that. In order for him to come off the Kings books, somebody would have to claim him. They'll probably either assign him to Manchester or if they really want to get rid of him, they might try reverse waivers.

He's getting $600,000 this year and the league minimum is $525,000. He won't cost much less even at the bare minimum.

The Kings will have to pay a penalty if they release hi from his contract before it expires. But they would pay less then keeping his uselessness for the rest of the season.

I never understood why they didn't bring him in on a try-out contract like Hunter. I don't think he earned his way into the line up in camp and he could have been let go then.

The 35+ rule is only for multi-year deals. His cap hit is now gone from the Kings. They still have to pay him.

This is something I don't understand. The Kings lost the best vet they had in Zues, and Moreau was brought in as an attempt to replace some of the stuff Zues brought. It didn't work out but bfd, he's on a 600k contract, it's not like he's making over a million and has completely handcuffed the team cap wise.

My major issue with his signing (and Hunter) is that the Kings continue to pursue damaged goods with their low risk, no rewards moves. It happened in the past with McCauley, Thornton and Cloutier and it's happening once again with the two UFAs they signed this past summer.

I understand that holes had to be filled in the bottom six, but there were better options available to the Kings that they passed up on in order to get bigger. This fixation on size is reminiscent of the Flyers of the mid 90s that were outclassed by the speed and skill of the Red Wings.

You win some and you lose some.

Zeus and Gagne have turned out ok.

They were both great acquisitions as they both play a complete game and bring more to the table than just one dimensional play. This is a team that desperately needed and still needs multidimensional players who can provide a spark both physically and offensively. They don't have to be snipers but players who can create chances.

Handzus and Simmonds were capable of that. I don't see anyone in their bottom six who is capable of that.

These are the guys the Kings can get in free agency. The Kings aren't getting anyone on a discount of any sort. Better options are going to cost more, and you probably have to add even more to that for the Kings. Absolutely love what Mitchell and Scuderi bring to the Kings, but those guys are getting almost $7 million between the two of them. I'd take those two on my team any day, but that's not cheap for a guy who's had trouble staying healthy all year lately, along with a guy that isn't going to be putting the puck in the net all that often.

Look at it this way. Moreau on a cheap contract allows the Kings to make an easy and painless move after some of the young guys play their way onto the team.

Don't forget Scuderi and Mitchell.

But people love to forget about these and instead focus on the Moreaus of this world.

Jeez, how can I forget our two best free agent signings in Scuds and Mitchell.

Especially Mitchell, coming off of a concussion.

DL took a flyer with Mitchell, and thus far, has paid off.
