King Voynov, Nolan are going to be in the lineup next year to start the year, IMO. If, let's say, Nolan fails to crack the lineup and heads back to Manchester I would move him back to a prospect I guess, but I just don't see that happening.

But kingsfan has made the call on this, so I am just using his criteria here.
I would say that Holloway has graduated all the same, he is now a professional European player and has made his choice to play overseas to try to attract other NHL teams, but he is a pro player nonetheless. The SEL is a good league and both Moller and Holloway continue to be signed through next season. I doubt we will see them in another Kings training camp or associated with the Kings whatsoever. The Kings themselves have taken Moller off their prospects list on their website. They are both gone, I would consider them free agents at this point. Their rights are worth nothing.

On a side note, I think some are pushing it with Forbort at #2. Hell, even HF, prior to this year's draft, had him updated at the end of the season and ranked #5. He has good upside, but I would look to him as more of a Willie Mitchell of the future as a max potential even.
