I'm fine with that. It's not like the core is entering their prime anyways, plus all you have to do is finish in the top 8 to have a shot at the cup. If Bernier gets hot at the right time, who knows?
I've always said that the Kings are at least 3 years away from being true contenders and Dean will have a lot of opportunies to add to the roster. Brown will just be entering his prime and Koptiar, Doughty, Johnson, Quick/Bernier, Simmonds, Schenn, etc will still be on the cusp of entering their prime. No need to panic this off season and makes trades just to make them.
It has to be the right player and the right cost.
I actually agree with Dean this time. I like the direction this team is going. I think getting Scuderi and Mitchell were huge for this franchise. If they can win a couple of rounds this season, more players will view LA as a destination.
