    For example, how are prospects supposed to be ranked at the end of the 2020-2021 season if said prospects ended up not playing due to regional pandemic shut-downs?

    They’ll be ranked, but I feel bad for the scouts since this season will be very compacted and fewer games will be played. And it will be a mess if there no season in 2020-21.

    I predict the Kings won't really be in the running for a top 5 pick in 2021 :)

    I hope we are. Lots of really high quality defensemen next year. Top ten should be pretty good.

    Hate to say it but unless our kids come out like gangbusters in 20-21 we're right back in the top 5. I'm pretty sure of it.

    The Scouting teams will really have earned their stripes if we have a good draft. Prospects won’t be an unknown quantity but their development will be impacted and the level of draft scrutiny will be lessened. As such there will be a lower level of certainty of how prospects will develop than there usually will be, especially the later rounds picks. There will be more busts in the early rounds, but equally more opportunity to get late round steals.

    It will really reveal which teams have the best scouting set-ups as the public scouting information will be of much less value than it normally is.

    So what you're saying is, "trade down"......

    Depends on how confident Yanetti is. I think it makes things harder and teams with average scouting will suffer. I’m fairly confident in our guys so we may make aggressive moves to move up and take guys that have artificially slipped...

    We fight for playoff spot all season and just barely miss out at end. Win 2021 lottery #1 pick from around the #13 spot. :thumbu:

    I think we'll finish in the black hole, but win a top 3 spot!

    There does not appear to be a clear cut #1 overall in the 2021 draft early on, that being said, can't we at least get through the 2020 draft first.

    Hard when we don't know who is going to re-sign , etc, but

    I would look for the Kings to try to get another Sean O'Donnell type player to shore up the D. Experienced, hopefully a mean streak and a good influence

    Let’s hope! That # 32 pick in 2022 would be a beautiful low pick to win right?

    Very soon, the 2020 draft will be history.......


    Meanwhile, the 2021 draft remains a mystery.......

    Owen Power would be a dream pick for the Kings. 6-5, 21o lbs, physical LHD that's a great skater, solid gap control, and produces offensively. A top 5 pick seems like a lock, could even go #1.

    Don’t sign any UFAs, play the kids, see what happens.

    I’m guessing we have solid lottery odds next summer.

    That name alone ...

    Could happen if we get a working 2nd line.

    More likely tho it’s other teams in the West going full dumpster fire ... Yotes, Sharks, Ducks come to mind.

    We would literally need to best out the Flames to be in the hunt.

    Owen Power and Daemon Hunt would be a dream pairing for their names alone.

    I hope Owen's nickname is 'Max,' so that we can hear this played as his goal song.
