    C'mon with our luck we won't be winning the draft lottery. I expect us to pick around 7th and pick up maybe Vasili Podkolzin.

    isn't there a greater chance that we don't get the first overall pick? there's an 81.5% chance that we don't land Hughes

    thanks to Edmonton for forcing the NHL to change these tank rules!

    I hope we get Hughes we need it and it would be huge .

    Hughes
    Kopitar
    Carter
    Amadio

    Would be great center depth .

    with the rule changes, Buffalo won the lottery despite the low odds, so the odds for the worst team in the league to win the lotto back to back is low

    also, prior to Dahlen, the last time the worst team won the lotto was Edmonton in 2011 w/ RNH

    basically, as a gambler, i'm not liking these odds

    I can't look at the bright side because I'm afraid we'll have Vancouver's lottery luck

    Remember when they were so close to the first pick in 08 and they just had to win the last game of the season to bump to number 2....Guess we are back to the same place. 2nd pick worked out great but I'm hoping for first overall.

    Hughes would be great, but even with the worst record, they have a 50% chance of falling out of the top 3.

    That said, I wouldn't mind one of Hughes, Kakko, Dach, or Cozens.

    Not to spoil on the Hughes parade but don’t the Kings need help on D? Doughty is going to be 29 soon, Muzzin is going to be 30, Martinez is already in his 30’s.

    Clague is the only other real stud.

    Kings have drafted Kupari and Vilardi and JAD are coming in soon. Not saying we don’t need Hughes but if ger a top 5 and not him, we need a D.

    Kings shouldn't draft based on need

    Kings should do everything in their power to get another first round pick.

    BPA!

    Did we learn nothing from Bernier, Lewis, Hickey, Tuebert and Forbort?

    Take a look at the mocks linked above, no defenseman in the Top 5, obviously the draft is 7 months away, this would not be a time to reach, but things can change.
