Not too many GMs can say in all honesty that a traded draft pick (with Johnson of course, but I'm pretty sure a case can be made Columbus valued the pick as much as JJ and his career (-90)/$4.4M cap hit at THAT particular point in time) lead directly to turning a team's fortunes completely around the way this traded draft pick did.
Hands down, The Kings won this draft almost 500 days before it happened and they didn't even pick until the 2nd round when Dean DOES have a track record of getting incredible value and seems to have done it once again (Time will tell).
Kings won this draft and there's little or no argument against. everything anyone does in this league is geared toward winning the Cup...PERIOD!
