Like cns said, you want to talk about hindsight in the 2008 draft. Imagine this team with Karlsson, Myers, Gardiner, Del Zotto or Sbisa on D or Eberle who could have been that long sought after elite winger for Kopitar. Even a guy like Colborne who could step in as the Kings #3 center next season. All taken within 10 picks of the Kings baffling pick of Colten Teubert.

I will say though, they hit a homerun with VV in the 2nd round. Wonderful pick there, and awesome that they were able to get him to come over right away and keep him away from the KHL.
But....then.....we wouldn't have Penner scoring big goals two games in a row down the stretch run!!!!!!!!!
