Didn't want to start a new thread. Pretty cool site, they have us picking Kane.

Coming Down the Pipe – Having a terrible NHL record for several years and a willingness to commit to a true rebuild is beginning to show dividends for the Kings. They have had ten 1st round picks in the last 6 drafts and most are still with the organization and are expected to be impact players. L.A. is one of the deepest teams in the NHL when it comes to prospects with no obvious holes in their system. Much of their youth is already playing at the NHL level which may deceive people who forget about those youngsters who moved quickly from junior or college and straight to L.A.

Draft Trends – For the last 3 years the Kings have looked to the CHL for their earlier picks. It’s also interesting to note that L.A. has no qualms about drafting goalies; 2008 was the first year since 2002 that the club didn’t take a pipeman while three times in that same span they actually grabbed a pair of them. Last year’s selections of Vyacheslav Voynov and Andrei Loktionov was the first time since 2003 that L.A. chose a Russian (Konstantin Pushkarev).

Evander Kane - With a blueline stocked with youngsters, the Kings will be looking for the real deal up front, and Evander Kane’s power forward style will fit in perfectly with the rest of the Kings young guns.

Flaming: Evander Kane – Best Player Available. The Kings tried to trade down in 2007 and may explore that route again but if not then adding a power forward to their prospect mix makes big sense. I really think there is a good chance that L.A. includes this pick in a trade for immediate help.

meh. the first round is the easy part.
these guys have been watched for years.
their jackets are thick with notes, video, etc.
they know a ton about the top 25. More than you could ever know about your favorite player of all time.

it's rounds 2-7 where the real work is going down.

a GM talking to a prospect a bunch is pretty uninteresting.

I would have to agree with this statement,. I certainly would like to see the kings (as opposed to the Wings) make a late round steal a la Datysuk or Zetterberg or, dare I say, Robitaille.

That would be nice!

If DL wants to gamble on another Russian I hear Andrei Kuchin is first round talent expected to fall because a) he's Russian and b) problems with his coaches.

Probably not a DL guy... but who saw Voynov and Loktionov coming?
