Well hey, you guys just locked up the most important piece of the puzzle for 8 years and one franchise forward with a tremendous defense is a recipe for a pretty darn good hockey club. Secondary scoring can be found in the secondary market, IMO. Picks and prospects can be translated into that much needed complimentary set of players but as long as you have Brown, Kopitar, and that defense and what it projects to be then the Kings are going to be alright down the line. Now they just have to figure out if Bernier is going to be ready in time to take this team where it needs to be in the next two or three years. If not then a stop gap is going to be high on the list of priorities.
