Call me crazy but the Ducks downfall could have something to do with losing these guys ...

... I don't think the Kings have too much to worry about losing guys like Kopitar, Doughty, Brown, Quick, Voynov, Richards, Carter ... heck even guys like Justin Williams, Willie Mitchell & Matt Greene are signed for several more years ... so it won't take much to tinker with and either sign UFA's or promote from within our own pool of stronger prospects {Toffoli, Vey, Loktionov, Kitsyn, Hickey, Forbort, DesLauriers, Jones} when and where we can to keep this team competitive for about another half decade and/or hopefully longer. that's the one thing Lombardi certainly has done right, built this team for not only the here and now but for the long haul hereafter ... it honestly does feel like the begining of a RED WINGS type of run for the next many years where we remain at the highest level of competitiveness while continually re-tooling and re-stocking as UFA's will want to come here, and our rookies will want to stay in the system longer for the chance to play for US rather then just bolt to try and make any NHL team or more money overseas, but time will tell.
