Tyler Toffoli gets a two-year deal from the Los Angeles Kings, but they still have a lot of cap problems.

Tyler Toffoli was obviously an offseason priority for the Los Angeles Kings, even with their cap crunch. He was signed today to a two-year contract by the Kings, carrying an average annual value of $3.25-million per season. Toffoli turned 23-years old in April, and managed 23 goals and 49 points in 76 games last season. He's also known for being part of the second line for the Kings with Jeff Carter and Tanner Pearson that did so well for them in their most recent Cup run.

Los Angeles has the problem that including Slava Voynov (and his domestic violence case is far from resolved), the Kings have nine players signed for at least four more years, all with an annual average value of over $4-million or more. Anze Kopitar is also a free agent at the end of next season. This is a short-term Band-Aid for Los Angeles, but there is still a lot of long-term work to be done.
