    Maybe it was not the 2nd overall pick for Malkin. Maybe it was the 2nd ROUND pick for Malkin. The rumors were true !

    I have heard for years of how deep this draft is and how many picks we have had. Now we are trading them all. I am a little confused with what going on here.

    Personally I hope its for Sakic!

    Trading them all? We’ve picked up enough to off set the one just traded…not really a big deal. Actually, if my calculations are correct, we are +1 right now.

    concerned fan … no need to be. One of the things that DL is doing is securing draft picks for the next few years. building a “core” is not a one year / one draft endeavor. There are so many intangibles in hockey and contracts that a GM must have options and plan for the future – something previous Kings admins did not quite have the foresight for. He has already secured a few picks in next years draft which, as many of you already know, will have some great prospects as well. Don’t be “nervous” … this has been a good (if not great) draft for the kings and DL is making sure that next year’s will be too.
