Not a bad list. It's always tough to compile a list on teams you don't necessarily follow, but you did fairly well.
For the Kings, I would take out Milan Hlinicka and put Ryan Munce. Munce is a goaltending prospect the Kings have in the OHL. One of the HF writers covering the OHL commented that Munce is probably the best goaltender in the OHL and rated him in the top 25 of all OHL prospects. Not sure if that would improve our goalie ranking any. Admittedly, goaltending is by far our worst off position.
I also think the Kings defense should be ranked #2 on that list. The problem is, with the exception of Grebeshkov, the Kings young defenseman are all stay-at-home defenseman in the Aaron Miller-Adam Foote mold. So they don't put up too many points and don't get the noteriaty that they deserve. But I do agree that Phoenix's d-men are clearly #1... for now.
One last thing: I'm going to buy you a thesaurus for your birthday. Too many "definitely"s and "utterly"s and my personal favorite - "talented talents".
Edit - I noticed that each of the Kings fans who replied in the main thread echoed my exact same sentiments. So, disregard my above comments and just mark me down as: I agree with them.
