Several years ago, the LA Kings won a meaningless last game of the year, slipping from the #1 pick to the #2 pick. Instead of drafting Steven Stamkos, they had to merely settle for Drew Doughty. Now nobody will argue against having a talent like Stamkos, but one could make the argument that without Doughty, the Kings do not win a Stanley Cup last season.
