Agree with this, and having been a Kings fan for most of my life, I can vouch for the fact that we could be seeing a LOT worse than what the Preds have shown us thus far. Youth movements always suck, but I have great respect for this organization, and their dedication to 'homegrown' players. I'm willing to give some of those players a good 15-20 games to find their niche before panic time, and Trotz/Poile's track record gives me no reason to doubt this team will be in the hunt once again come the end of the season.
