Could be Kuemper for Reider if Arizona claims Wedgewood lol


Doesn't really make sense that they would do that. But I do feel like there has to be a team somewhere that could use him. It's not like Wedgewood is old or playing bad. And he's on a very team friendly contract.

Because they already have five signed goalies in their system. If they thought Wedgewood was part of the future, they wouldn't have moved him in the Rieder deal. Instead they wanted Raanta and Kuemper as a tandem for the future.

Doesn't make sense to give a 25-yr old goalie starts in the AHL when you have 20-22yr olds already getting the starts there. Especially when they aren't a playoff team and could use him for depth.

I thought I read this wrong at first. This trade makes zero sense for Arizona. The Kings run out like thieves.


This aged well

Wedgewood cleared waivers and Rieder didn't get qualified. Suffice it to say that nobody saw those coming. This worked out well for ARI after all.

and now Wedgewood is in the AHL and Reider still hasnt scored a goal while Kuemper is leading this team towards the playoffs Chayka makes a lot of trades that look like a win for the other team and turn out to be a win for the him

a seemingly small trade that got blown out of proportion first and then completely turned around. beautiful. I wonder if people will give Chayka credit for this.

To be fair Kuemper has put up Elite numbers this year but its behind LA


Guess it wasn't just behind the Kings defense, he really was an NHL caliber goaltender!

Funny how many idiots thought Kings won this or Wedgewood who they released after trade or put on waivers would be key... Ask Oilers how REider cost them making playoffs by not scoring enough goals like they hoped he would smile. Blake has lost every single trade he has made for LAK by far in most cases too smile...
