I think they've taken some chances in the mid-later rounds on players like that with Loktionov, Kitsyn, Prokhorkin. How many superstars have been drafted out of the first round the past couple of years? It rarely happens.

But I think I get what you're saying in that it isn't often the Kings go for a purely skilled player.
