Lombardi is a great GM! You guys are lucky.

Who knows maybe someone like Zykov or another of the Russians drops and we make a trade up for him.
Called it!

Nice gesture by DL, to move the 7th. Great to see it in the NHL where Gms make some pretty ruthless trades.

Exactly! Don't know why the Devils hate the Kings when DL gave them Loki and now the 7th pick.

Holy crap did the Sharks blow it today. They went into what is considered probably the deepest draft in about a decade with four picks in the first two rounds, and came away with Tyler Kennedy, Mirco Mueller, and Gabryel Paquin-Boudreau.

I think ok, but I am waiting for TonellisGhost report...

I was hoping we would have taken Jordan Subban (PK's brother) with the Justin Auger pick...I guess because of reading a lot about him in the last week and that PK Subban said Jordan is the one who teaches him skills....sure, he's like 5'9" 175, but maybe in 3 yrs he's 5'11" and 195 and if his skills and game keeps progressing, you have a player.

Auger sounds like a bigger project than that.

Look at who we drafted today, big and beefy. 5'9" 175 wasn't going to cut it

Exactly the Kings drafted Two guys under 200 LBS but those guys are both over 6'0" and young.


Dominik Kubalik is 6'1" 180LBs as a 17 year old

I wonder if he's the youngest player drafted this year? The deadline was two weeks after his birth!

If the Kings end up with 2 players from today, it'll be a success.

Obviously the guy to keep an eye on is Zykov. Trade 3 picks to move up and get him. He doesn't have to be 1 of the 2 players to consider this draft a success, but he sort of has to be 1 of the 2.

Ideally, he is 1 of the 2, because he has the highest impact potential.

Kings won this draft on June 11th, 2012, when the 1st round pick we didn't get to make this year lead to hardware.

Admittedly, I don't follow prospects as much as I used to, but I'm happy based on the reactions of those who follow the scouting game. The Kings drafted some big kids, that's for sure.

When NHL Network showed Hextall laughing with Marty at the Devils table, I knew something as up with the Kings last pick. Nice end of the day for the Brodeurs when it started with Marty basically finding out who his replacement would be.

Director of Amateur Scouting Mark Yannetti "Wanted to pick Auger last year, but their were better players'. "He is a giant piece of clay with good hands".

Sounds like the Kings scouts were high on Auger.

The Kings have an awful history drafting guys whose last names start with "A". Since '67 they've only drafted 12 of these players and only one ever played for the Kings, Dennis Abgrall, a RW who played 13 games for the King in '75-'76.

Only Andy Andreoff seems to have a chance to end that, but that's no guarantee.

Auger obviously has a lot to prove.

Abgrall, Dennis
Ahlen, Thomas
Aivazoff, Micah
Allan, Sandy
Andersen, Niclas
Andersson, Erik
Andreoff, Andy
Andresen, Joel
Anshakov, Sergei
Armstrong, Jim
Auger, Justin
Azevedo, Justin
