That would be my guess. I bet Demitra goes the other way

What a stupid deal. Demitra was the main scoring touch for the Kings last season. I doubt O'Sullivan will be ready to step in and make the splash the Kings need. The draft pick was a waste of time he is going to Michigan next season. What the Kings need is help now, not in a few years.

Help doing what? Losing?

Demitra was an awesome skilled player, but he's not a guy that is going to lead this team into the promised land.

DL wants to build an all around winning team, not just some bullshiat team that's going to fight for 8th place w/ no chance at winning the Cup.

Kuddos to DL for having the cashews to pull this deal off.

Wow, just wow. This is one of the worst comments I've read about this deal. Do you think every prospect that is drafted steps in right away? It's called 'development'.

Personally I'd rather see the Kings make the playoffs in the 8th spot rather than sit on the sidelines for another couple years while awaiting "development." Maybe Demitra isn't the guy to build the team around, but is O'Sullivan or the draft pick? Not this year. I am still surprised that DL would trade away arguably the best player the Kings had for what at least for the season equates to a bag of pucks.
