I aksed Al Murray a while ago about the timeout. They knew they wanted Boyle and they were going to trade the 27th overall. In the NHL draft once it's your turn you can't trade the pick. The Kings wanted a roster player for the 27th pick. A few teams, including Montreal, offered picks but no roster players so they held onto the pick.
And I heard that from someone else who works for the Kings. They were going to take Stewart and Boyle but when Stewart was gone they weren't sure if they wanted to take Tambellini or trade the pick...it looks like they made the right decision.
