Hockey's Future Organizational Rankings, Kings ranked #2

I think we are again number 2. This time we will be behind the Oilers who have Eberle, Paajavari, and Hall.

Very good guess but not quite right!

Answer is #2 beaten only by the Predators.

Meh. Youngest team in the league, first place in the league by the end of October, and second place in terms of their prospect depth chart... Sounds pretty good to me, I can live with that.

I don't really follow prospects and drafting all that much outside of the Kings. I don't even pay that much attention to the Kings drafting and prospects. That being said, I feel bad for Nashville fans. Their organization seems to always be drafting and/or developing good players that they eventually can no longer afford. I guess they make the most out of their budget but you have to wonder how good they could be if they spend a little closer to the cap.

The Kings have a nice healthy pool of young defensemen that can be used in deals to get the scoring punch they need if it can't be developed internally. That's the best thing about our prospects. I imagine Nashville feels the same way, except their internal budget might keep them from acquiring a star forward.

I expect the Kings will keep taking the best player available in each and every draft.

True but Nashville at least puts a competitive team on the ice ever year. Florida on the other hand has probably better prospects come through the system and ends up trading them or losing them for nothing right around the time they come into their prime. Examples: Luongo, Jokinen (I know Florida didn't draft them but, they were a part of the core of the team 5 years ago) Jovonovski, Horton, Stewart, Bouwmeester, Hagman etc. Booth and Weiss may be traded in the near future. The whole org is just a mess and has been that way for over 10 years now.

They've made the playoffs 4 of the past 5 seasons and always seem to be competitive, it sucks that they can't get past the first round but at least they are consistent.

3+ years ago our weakness was the goalie and most of the guys wearing the same jersey.

What does that have to do with having strong depth in the pipeline? So the weakness of a winger means the Kings have a poor prospect pool? Not sure if you were aware but that are lots of teams who are lacking something on their roster and in their system. This isn't something that is exclusive to the Kings. Look at the Penguins and their need for wingers... they need more top six wingers than the Kings do.

As they should. When drafting 18-year-olds, I don't see how any other method makes sense.

Frankly, if we need a weakness, I'd rather it be on the wing. Goaltender, defensemn and centres are far more difficult to get and develop than a winger.

Besides, we have intriguing options coming out of the recent draft in Weal, Kitsyn and Toffoli.

When you are ranked 2nd overall though, I assume your 'weakness' is really all that weak anyways.

I see us having a serious problem at depth on the wing but I used to see us having serious problems on D in goal and up the middle.

I can see us not having a depth problem on the wing after this next draft if not sooner.
