"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
Both have about the same number of games played, and in the brief discussions before this started the point was made that as of right now King likely has a spot to lose on in the Kings bottom 6 while with the return of Gagne, Nolan may end up in Machester to start to year... I don't totally agree with that logic but that was kind of the consensus reached.
Voted Jones due to his being the best goalie prospect the Kings have and I think this may be his breakout year (especially if Bernier is traded and he ends up as JQ's backup.)
Add Soupy aka Campbell.
Add Brandon Kozun.
Disturbing fact; I completely spaced Kozun on the first draft of my top 20, and it was honestly nothing other than there are that many prospects I thought more highly of... He still takes way too many penalties for a scoring forward but has all the skills to make it.
Pretty much what Tigermask said above me. King's spot seems like it's his to lose at camp, while Nolan's spot is much less of a guarantee. This was discussed in the initial prospect poll, so you can look there for more info.
Pearson is EASILY the most talented player left, IMO. Honestly, I put him ahead of Forbort even, IMO. He has serious top 6 upside (Justin Williams esque), and is very close to NHL ready right now even. Just has that natural hockey sense you look for, with a wicked wrister to boot.
Add Holloway, he is easily the most talented prospect by far on this list, even with no Kings future. And Gravel needs to be in that conversation as well, but based on talent Holloway should be on that list (well ahead of Shore and Andreoff FOR SURE, IMO, based purely on talent/potential).
