I'd take Mitchell ahead of those three. We know what Mitchell can do now and how much he helps the Kings defensively. Those three are still unknowns that the Kings have to wait for. Better they break in as bottom pairing dmen rather than expect them to fill a spot in the top four (which is already occupied by Doughty and Johnson up top).

Maybe down the road, Scuderi's minutes decrease and others slide up, but for now, the blueline is crowded and the only competition will be who will serve as the 7th defenseman.

I'm hoping Mitchell has another fairly healthy season and is brought back. He seemed to mesh well with this group and enjoyed a successful season with the Kings.
