The way this organization treats some of it's skilled young talent like Loktionov or Moller is baffling. Are they expecting every forward to be molded into a friggin' grinder?
I actually believe they do, and the sad thing is, I'm not kidding. IMO the Kings are awful at harnessing and developing young talent, and it's only gotten worse under Murray..

The decision to dress Westgarth over Lokti is just dumb. Finishing off a east coast road trip, you need those young fast legs to help you to be able to roll four lines that might have a chance of scoring a goal. Instead, Westgarth gets 6 minutes of worthless icetime
