    Does anyone know why Turcotte hasn't played all of Wisconsin's games? Is it just that he's a freshman and needs to wait his turn, or is he dealing with an injury/still learning the system?

    My goodness that would be freakin awesome if we get a Bergeron clone. Would help this team immensely in the rebuilding process.

    Had a goal yesterday and just scored another today on a 2-on-1. Used Caufield as a decoy and hit the top corner.

    That won't work on the Kings. Not part of the system. If he scores 2 in a game on the Kings, TM will have a teaching moment about other options Turcotte had, instead of putting the
    puck in the net...

    Can't wait for Turcotte-Vilardi centering our 1st and 2nd line. Really hoping Vilardi gets healthy. Excited for the future of this team.

    I can't imagine picking first or second next draft just because we are always screwed one way or another by this ridiculous draft lottery but:

    Byfield - Vilardi - Turcotte

    Our potential top 3 centers, if only the hockey gods were Kings fans.

    Odds woul dbe that "IF" we landed Byfield both Vilardi and Turcotte would move to the wings..

    Think of a future lineup with;

    Kaliyev-Kopitar-Vilardi ... Throwing AK out there since he's our best LW prospect, Kopi and Gabe could be magical
    Turcotte-Byfield
    -Brown... "IF" we land Byfield, he and Turcotte would be a nightmare!

    After the two cups, it appears the hockey gods have decided that Kings fans are not allowed to have nice things.

    It's going to be okay once the overpaid vets have their contracts expire, but it's going to get worse before it gets better.

    That's the Kings I want to see! Although Brown just turned 35 and don't think he will still be top 6.
    Kupari or Fagemo can be possibilities at RW. Fagemo is underrated and can sure score goals.
    Turcotte excels at center and maybe Byfield woud be the winger.
