It's not a theory, it is what it is. Except for the Wings, every team in the past decade (going back to before the 1st lockout) has had a top 2 pick on their roster and has drafted twice or more in the top 4. Because the Kings "reached" for Hickey instead of taking Gagner, Voracek or Couture does not change the fact. The Kings also drafted Brayden Schenn at #5, but that fell out of the criteria.
