As a Kings fans I am hoping your right.

Clearly this team is lacking in the defensive end right now, with no sign of Mitchell returning soon and Greene out for basically the season.

He definitely is going to get his shot, if he does elevate his game, the Kings defense next year (barring injury) could be really sic..
