I really like this deal for the Kings. Andersson needs a change of scenery and could still turn into an effective NHL forward. He’s just about to turn 22 years old and could certainly earn a spot in Los Angeles’ lineup next season.
I think the price was a bit high with guys like Poirier still on the board and because he nuked his bridge back to the NHL with NYR. I sincerely doubt NYR was holding out for a 2nd, but who knows?
Futa was on NHL Radio. Gushed over Andersson. Kid has something to prove so maybe he'll be motivated. I hope the team had some reports that he was eager to return.
