Among Kings prospects, I'd say only Boyle and Lehoux have made bigger strides this season. Sure he still has a ways to go, but I doubt he was the main target of the "we need to look in the mirror" remark.
Especially since Ladd has been demoted to the second line a few times this season
I keep wondering of he's talking about Getzlaf. He has definitely not played up to his capabilities this year, and I think he's frustated by still being in juniors. He was fairly close to making the Ducks last season so this has to be a bit of a let down. I think he's ready to move on.
