The logic I don't understand is "Since the Kings traded away 90% of their 1st round draft picks in the 80s and 90s, that means that the Kings should not trade one 1st round draft pick now."

I know no one has said this specifically, but its an argument that is used a lot.

"Hey, we should offer around Voynonv or Schenn or someone."

"DT traded all the youth! ON NOS!"

As if a decade of a philosophy of trading youth for vets is the same as making one carefully considered move that involves getting a more established player for a less established player.
