I do think Perry and Getzlaf are going to NHL'ers, but not as good as most Ducks fans think they are going to be.



That's funny, because I remember most Kings fans pissed that we drafted 2 projects.
Exactly, most of us who read the scouting report on these guys were wondering why the Kings would draft 3rd potential guys in the first round. In Steckel's case, he was always regarded as a project... and that if anything disappointed a lot of folks specifically because that pick was part of the Blake Deal.

Until recently, the Kings had one of the worst prospect systemes in hockey. Don't know too many people who touted many prospects. We all wanted Jared Aulin to do well, Pavel Rosa, but Kings fans couldn't really be guilty of overrating prospects in the past. Tough to do when you don't have any...
