Back in 1996, the Blues were hosting the draft but Mike Keenan wanted to deal his first rounder for Jason Allison. Ownership wouldn't let him do the deal because they didn't want to "let down" fans in attendance. With the pick, they drafted Marty Reasoner.

Islanders might be the Kings best option. Young team that's on the upswing and they could use a young #1. They have a fair amount of depth in the pipeline and could afford to deal a pick/prospect.
As someone who watched Reasoner torture us all year with his play. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

And I thought the Isles ownership sucked.
