Anyone Want Ethan Moreau?

via Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider,

The Kings are on the ice for practice, but without Ethan Moreau, who was placed on waivers this morning. Moreau also did not play in the third period last night. Otherwise, the top two lines are the same and Willie Mitchell is once again a full participant in practice. Moreau’s presumed removal from the roster tomorrow — teams will have until 9 a.m. Pacific time to put in claims — would clear up a roster spot for (Willie)Mitchell.

Correcting a mistake now is better than letting it drag on.  Moreau is classy guy but he doesn’t have the legs to keep up, resulting in him taking a lot of harmful minors in transition. Still more than enough “grit” to keep TM happy with Hunter, Westgarth and Clifford around.

the silver lining here is that Voynov is staying up - he has played well and has proven to be yet another excellent defensive prospect / rookie for the Kings.

Per CapGeek, he has only a $600,000 cap hit and then he’s UFA for the ‘12-‘13 season.
