The 2005 draft was one of the significant moments in LA Kings history.
Agreed, not trying to take it all away from DT. That said, Taylor MAY have had input on Kopitar, that's it. He likely knew as much about Quick as we did when his name was called. Hard to say that's his shining moment. I think the Blake trade was his true shining moment and the only reason it didn't pan out like that is injuries to Deader and some misguided direction at the draft table (focused to much on getting that big-bodied centre).
