Trading Johnson and a 1st for Carter didn't involve any players the Kings drafted.

The only prospect-for-NHL player deal the Kings have done since 2011 is Schenn+ for Richards. Which wasn't even a good trade. They also got Schenn as reward for being a garbage team until Doughty and Quick really broke out.

And the Kings prospect pool really isn't that impressive. Zykov, McNabb, and?

I read this and think "grass is greener to a T".
