Agreed,

Wasn't a huge fan of taking Alzner either, just like with Teubert the next year, you really want to be getting something more than that with a first round pick. Now, Alzner is not a flop like Teubert, in fact he is a really solid 3rd pairing defender, but is that what you want with a Top 4 pick?

I wanted Voracek or Gagner that year, and neither one of them has panned out. In hindsight the Kings should have traded down, but there really probably wasn't much demand for the #4 pick in a draft that was considered to be heavily weighted towards the top 3 in Kane, JVR and Turris.
