In 2008 the Kings missed out on Karlsson, Meyers, Eberle, Del Zotto, Gardiner, Carlson, Sbisa to take a player with almost zero upside who projected as a 3rd pair d-man. Those are some damn good players there.

Again, all the criticism is because of the #4 spot in the draft. It's only a number, and it was a weak draft.

Hickey just peaked at 19 and was passed by players taken after him by the Kings. It happens sometimes.
Teubert is terrible but he was ranked ahead of everyone on your list except Myers and had top 4 potential according to many.
