According to this site HF the Kings have the #5 best prospect pool and are about to win the Stanley Cup

# 5 - Los Angeles Kings

Strengths: The Kings may have the best goaltending depth of any team in the NHL. Jonathan Bernier has shown signs he can be an elite NHL starting goaltender, while Martin Jones and Christopher Gibson could at least become quality backups down the line. The Kings' are also very deep on their blue line, with a handful of nice puck-moving defenseman, including Slava Voynov, Nicolas Deslauriers, and Thomas Hickey. Derek Forbort and Jake Muzzin are also nice pieces on the back-end. Up front, the Kings have a handful of talented players, including Andrei Loktionov and Tyler Toffoli.

Weaknesses: The loss of Brayden Schenn leaves the Kings without any blue chip offensive pieces. Though there is good depth on left wing, there is limited skill level.

Top 5 Prospects: 1. Jonathan Bernier, G, 2. Andrei Loktionov, C, 3. Slava Voynov, D, 4. Tyler Toffoli, RW, 5. Derek Forbort, D.
Not a bad organization situation to be in best NHL team with a top 5 prospect system.
