Anyways, the trade wouldn't be that awful had the Kings taken Meyers or any of Karlsson, Del Zotto or Carlson.
I like our scouting staff, but how on Earth could they have compared Teubert and Meyers, two guys who played in the same league and thought Teubert was the better pick, its amazing.
As for Hickey...I don't have a problem with the pick, but just wish the Kings had traded down, not sure Hickey was proper value for the #4 pick.
Maybe it had something to do with that fact that at the time Myers was considered a project as well and hadnt broken out? Noone had any idea that Myers was going to explode developmentally and do what hes doing. The Myers hype didnt start until after the draft. Hindsight is always 20/20.
