Might want to hold onto the 1st round pick, if things keep going the way they seem to be going.

These 5 games before the deadline were big. Phoenix twice, Calgary, Colorado, and Chicago. The Kings are 0-3-1, got shutout at home twice, gave up a 3-0 first period lead, have scored 5 goals, and have given up 11(10 not including the shootout goal). Somehow still in 8th though, with still yet another chance to win a game at home on Saturday, and keep their heads above water.

It's just a mentally fragile group. Not just this season, but obviously you can go back to the collapse in the playoff game against San Jose as well. They've certainly shown no signs that something like the deadline isn't in their heads either.

Either way though, the Kings will have to do something. Whether it's at the deadline, the draft, or over the summer, the Kings will need at least 1 more top 6 guy. Penner can't leave soon enough. Nobody knows about the status of Gagne for next season. Parise isn't coming here. Nash isn't coming here. The Kings probably couldn't even get Semin without breaking the bank. If nothing else, it's an interesting time to be a Kings fan.
