I noticed the Kings declined to pick up his option, so what does that mean exactly? I know it makes him a UFA, but is there a certain date the Kings couldn't theoretically resign him until? Does this also mean we have 0 interest in him?
The lockout year really hurt him. Prior to that he was putting up a little run offensively with the Hawks/Kings. After that he has struggled. Tough call to let him go, he may come back to haunt us if he finds a fit somewhere else.
