    Andreoff was actually a real exciting fighter in the AHL but has generally looked like trash fighting at the NHL level.

    Westgarth was similar. Some pretty gnarly fights in the AHL but a punching bag in the NHL.

    which happens enough to keep me worried throughout the season

    Kings are a team that need a Bernier / Greiss / R. Miller / Kuemper etc etc etc type of backup; a goalie that can do some 1A when needed

    not guys like Campbell / Budaj / Zatkoff - players that shake and wobble and make every save seem mammoth mostly due to their own anxieties

    We should've made this move a month ago, we would've won the Cup with Andreoff, just the type of player we lacked against Washington.

    we say this about almost every depth player the kings have that play more often than they should.

    I guess you didn't like the fact that he was undefeated in regulation in his 4 NHL starts with us or his .924 save pct. I'll take that for a new kid any day. Give him some time to get the league under his feet. Kid was a 1st round draft pick for a reason. He just needs to prove it all season. Kings staff are confident in his abilities, and the move didn't happen last year without Ranford's blessing.

    Andreoff brings a sandpaper game of the lightest grain, and VERY little else, glad the Kings are moving on from him

    yea 4 games isn't enough
    and he was shaky in one and a half of those four games, also, Kings D is tight af

    ill reiterate, i wouldn't go into a season, knowing Quick's history with injuries, with a goalie that has a total of 7 games worth of experience at the NHL level

    that's just me
    some are really into this kind of thing i respect it, i just wouldn't do that, that's all

    Unfortunate. Liked his game when in Oshawa, thought he may make a decent 4th line energy guy in the NHL

    Hilarious that Cal Peterson chose LA over Buffalo.


    Hilarious for Cal, that is.

    AHL All-Star his first season in the organization.

    Smart choice on his end. ( We tend to groom goalies pretty well. )

    Kings management has already said that he is a heir to the throne.

    He will spend next season in the AHL and then will back up Quick for a year or 2. After that the net will be his to lose.

    I don't think Andreoff winds up on our NHL roster. This is just us giving Budaj back to a team where he had some success, and clearing the way for Domingue to take over the back-up job. Yzerman probably said, "What'll you give us?" and then said "yes" before he got an answer.

    He's essentially a bust.

    For where he was drafted sure. He's a fine backup goalie. Budaj is perfect as a mentor for Petersen.

    Yeah, and it’s also not a bad idea to bring a guy like that to camp just so somebody like Erne doesn’t think he has a guaranteed roster spot. He can serve as the bar our prospects have to clear to make the team, and then we can send him to Syracuse to be a veteran presence there with Condra unlikely to return. So we do right by Budaj, save a little money, and if nothing else get a plug with NHL experience who can serve as an injury call-up in a pinch.

    Syracuse always seems to have a tough guy, while having one in TB is pretty rare.

    That’s why I’m hoping Erne can show enough to stick around. The kid has a mean streak that is sorely lacking on our roster. If he can bring that on a consistent basis, avoid injuries (which unfortunately he hasn’t been able to do thus far in his career), and score the occasional dirty goal in front of the net he could be a welcome addition to our bottom six.

    At 18, that kid looked like a sure-fire NHLer. Reports came out way later that management actually gave some legit thought to putting him on the team that year, a year where there was a log-jam.

    Strange case. I'm on the fence with whether or not I have any hope left for him. He did a lot of good things last year, but couldn't seem to turn those good things into results. At least not the kind of results that keep a kid in the NHL.

    Yeah, I think this is pretty much his last chance as far as the Lightning are concerned.

    I just want to see him get a chance. We still havent done this with Koekkoek but its a little harder to trust an inexperienced D than a forward. Even then we put Sustr out there over him. Then again we gave Point and Cirelli a solid chance. I think with a stacked team like Tampa you have to make your case early and often. Those guys did. Erne and Koekkoek have left us with more to desire.

    (Budaj vs. Campbell) for the Kings backup spot: This should be an interesting battle. I also don't see Petersen as an AHL starter yet. He's fresh out of Notre Dame and he should develop properly unless if he catches on quickly.
