Never even set foot on AHL ice till this last season.

That is a terrible pick, the Kings got nothing out of Ryan....NOTHING.

But every single GM in the NHL has a story like that. Every single one.
Like you said, every NHL GM has a story like this. But crazy thing is that Al Murray, then-Kings Director of Amateur Scouting, claimed that he wanted Lucic but Lombardi asked for Ryan to fill organizational need for young d-men.
