Are LA looking for FW or D?

I'm not a LA kings fan although I do enjoy what they have been doing recently but are they looking to draft D or FW? I noticed the many top 5 pick D's they have in the last couple of years but many are saying ekman-larson is projected to go there? they have hickey doughty j.johnson and bernier and net I see Kane or Schenn being a perfect fit to build a new offense around.

Highly doubtful, Schenn seems to be the guy. His upside is a Mike Richards type of player which a team can definitely build around.

Possible if we trade down but LA's cupboard is a little lacking at the forward position.

Kings centers:
Kopitar, age 21 - 1st/2nd line center
Stoll, 27 - 2nd/3rd line center
Handzus, 32 - 3rd/4th line center
Boyle, 23 - Potential: 4th line center
Lewis, 21 - Potential 3rd, 4th line center
Andrei Loktionov, 19 - Potential, ??? (2nd, 3rd line center)

We could def use some help. We have no scoring 1st or 2nd line center in our prospect pool. Loktinov is the only one with that potential.

The only way we select a D is if we make a serious trade to land a elite forward and send 1 or 2 of our young D's in that trade

Your the first I have heard with this projection of Ekman-Larsson this high at 5th overall... As stated already by some of the guys its felt we could use a Center or Left Wing more than a defenseman. Some have worried DL and his love of Defenseman might want Cowan. But most of us believe its Schenn or Kane DL trully covets! Its also our hope!
