Who do you think the Kings will draft in the first round this year?
Oh, yeah sorry. Forgot, the always forward-thinking “build it from the back end” and “build it right” genius Dean Dumbardi traded this years first rounder for Dustin Donuts Penner! Well look, that’s building from the back end if you are looking for the guy with the biggest ass in the league.
But not to worry, they can just use their #13 overall pick from 2008 to trade up this year for someone else’s first round pick. What’s that you say? They traded Colton Teubert the rough and tumble 13th overall sure fire Dman? What’d they get for him, some stud second line center or a great Dman? What? They traded Teubert AND their first round pick for fat boy Penner?
Then maybe they can use next years 2nd round pick to move up this year ….. what???!!!! They traded a 1st, a 2nd and a great prospect for a year and a half of the human ice melting machine????
