Kopitar fell because he was Slovenian, there is no other explanation.

The Kin gs had no business getting Kopi where they did in that draft, I think it's fair to say it's possibly the most fortunate event to ever happen to this franchise.

There were some great players in that draft (Bobby Ryan, Jonathan Quick, James Neal, Carey Price, Jack Johnson, Keith Yandle, James Neal) but only Crosby should have gone before Kopitar.

Gilbert Brule, Brian Lee, Luc Bourdon (rip), Devin Setoguchi, Jack Skille and Benoit Pouliot, just some bad bad picks.

Scary to think if Kopi had gone to SJ or Chicago (could you imagine!?), happy it worked out for us.
