POLL: What’s the right roster move for the LA Kings?

As reported yesterday, Dustin Penner is set to return to the Kings line-up this Thursday. In order for that to happen though, the team needs to make a roster move to create a slot for him.

If you were the Kings GM, which of the following moves would you make?

To answer the question properly, first assume a few things… Penner isn’t getting traded and/or waived, Bobby Ryan isn’t moving across town to Staples Center and all other trades are temporarily off the table. Thus, one of the options below is what ‘you’ and your Kings management team are trying to reach consensus on.

For those unfamiliar with the finer points of the decision, some players can be sent to Manchester without a problem (i.e. usually younger players, with fewer games played in the NHL – like Andrei Loktionov). Others, usually more experienced players, would first have to be placed on ‘waivers,’ allowing another NHL team to claim them – which would also free up cap space for the Kings. If the waived player isn’t taken by any other team, he can then be assigned to Manchester.

Weighing all options, which one is the right move?

Poll closes at noon on Tuesday or when the final decision is announced by the team.
