Morgan Klimchuk seems like a "Dean Lombardi" type of player.

I don't want him, at least not where he'll likely go in the draft. I just don't have the feeling he'll be a top two line player.

I'd rather sign a 25 yo as a UFA or trade for one with a low pick than draft one this year in the first four rounds.
Considering we have Berube and Gibson (and theortically Jones as well) needing starting spots at the pro level next year, signing a guy who will need to jump straight to the pros isn't something that would make much sense. Drafting a kid that can sit in juniors for a few years and not tie up a contract slot as well gives the Kings flexibility and gives the goalie a place to be the starter and get a lot of game action.
