Am I on crack for thinking...

For all the Kings fans wanting the Kings to take Simpson... They can't in the first round of the draft because he's in their division. So he'd have to fall to the second round... not saying he would or he wouldn't, but between that and the $1.5 mil he makes, I don't think it's likely the Kings would select him and have to unprotect someone...
I think you'll see the Kings stand pat because Bryan Muir (who is protected) is no worse than the guys on the list that the Kings could afford. I mean, maybe Simpson's a bit more reliable, but he makes about $1 mil more... and on this team, that means everything at this point.
I'm worried the Kings might lose Hnilicka, who at $250k (after the reworked contract) is a complete bargain.
and yes, the Kings get the 13th selection if they want it.
