i don't know about "nowhere close to NHL ready." he was definitely ill-suited for top line duty, but he ended up at only -2 and didn't do anything to really hurt the team

You haven't watched any games in Manchester, maybe Zeiler has improved his game and doesn't suck anymore? As far as I'm concerned this maybe the first move that leads to another move on Monday. Either that and I'm wrong they may want Zeiler to be on the fourth line and having a speedy line with Richardson and Lewis.

But like I said, if they want energy or speed, why not call up someone like Clune?

Maybe they like Zeiler's speed, which I think is better than Clune's

Let's be honest with each other here please. Would any other NHL team trade FOR John Zeiler?

Westgarth is probably hurt and the team needs anoher 4th liner who isn't a complete liabilty and can skate. That player is Zeiler.

Maybe the Kings are trading for someone and would like to get rid of some dead weight in the process?

If he is indeed being called up to play, it wouldn't be that big of a surprise. He was one of the last cuts at training camp. I hope I'm wrong though.

The Ducks did something similar when they waived Bodie, he was claimed by Carolina and then they sent Carter to Carolina for 2 minor-leaguers.

Or when Todd Marchant was waived by Columbus, claimed by the Ducks and then the Ducks traded Fedorov and a 5th to Columbus for Beauchemin+.

No, why should they.
29 teams in the NHL try to play hockey.
The Kings are the only one who try to create an art form or something using the roster. Everyone has a special skill or a special role when you ignore the actual hockey skills.
It's like one of these role games on computer.
You know your group is good enough to go through the dungeon but you have one roster spot free.
You dig deep in your team and find an unskilled level 2 character and take him with you to level him up.
After you find out his level cap is actually 2 you just send him into the next monster group to have a body for your necromancer to create a mighty zombie.
Unfortunately Murray isn't a necromancer he is a healer and re spawns Zeiler and hope this time he is defeating the group.

Something like that must go on in Kings head office.
I don't have any other explanation for these kind of roster moves.
It has always been like that........ the untalented worse player getting everything for free and the most talented guys have to earn something or are the guys who are benched.

He's on a 2 way deal correct? So would his AHL salary be halved as well?

Bruins get a player who has played at the NHL level and they send Ryder (and his hefty contract for this year) back to LA + something else.
I could see that happening.

He's going to be a 4th line mainstay for years for us, he's just not ready to be playing top line minutes yet. People just need a whipping boy.

Actually he said

Also, John Zeiler has been put on recall waivers. If he clears, at 9 a.m. Monday, he can join the Kings. More notes and quotes to come…

Ya, I was gonna post that, I guess it's pretty clear that their intention with Zeiler is for him to be in a Kings uniform come Monday or be a healthy scratch, either way, no one's claiming him and he's not getting traded anywhere, be reasonable, no one wants John Zeiler lmao

Well, if Scuderi is hurt and Harrold steps in, the Kings have no spare D or forwards...if Scuderi is fine, that leaves the Kings Harrold and Zeiler as healthy scratches....
