Forbort was the right pick at the time, the problem is his offensive game has just never developed at UND. He was not Colten Teubert, there was some upside there but it just hasn't happened for him offensively.

The Kings draft amazingly well in the second, third and fourth rounds. Not much to write home about with first rounders though.
That's the problem with our drafting. LA needs to start getting some Superstar talent in the first rounds as opposed to the solid 2-4th line types and depth dmen in 2-7th rds. Though Voynov is looking like a true Gem!
