A while ago on another unnamed website I posted the Kings' roster DT took over and also the Roadrunners' roster along with the other "top" prospects (which is like talking about which one is the "top" turd in a toilet, although even with that you can at least be proud of which one is the top, but I digress.). And it almost made me cry. Partly because it made me remember those woefull days, but partly in happiness because of how far DT has brought this franchise.

Did you see waymoresports.com's (Toronto Star) list of the top 10 players from the 2000 draft? Visnovsky was #9 and Frolov was #2 ahead of Gaborik...Heatley was #1. IMO, that was DT's first real draft. I discount all the previous ones because IMO he was learning on-the-job (in a job nobody else wanted) and ever since 2000 the Kings have done a G-R-E-A-T job in every aspect. Unfortunately, injuries just killed them on the ice.
