As for Ho Sang, I don't think it's his attitude as much as his lack of commitment to all around and physical play that will turn off the Kings. I don't know if there are any team issues, but I've read the overbearing cockiness just scratches the surface.
I wouldn't mind the Kings taking a chance with a later pick, but definitely not the first.
Masin is one of my favorites in the draft. He just seems like a King - just battle and find a way to get it done, no cheating yourself type. Lemieux looks like he would be a fun late choice as well.
According to the nhl network the Kings will take Brendan lemieux..

Isn't it nice of New Jersey to help us out again by giving us a higher pick this year for signing Kovalchoke???
Dean will take the best player available.
I don't think Ho-Sang is as good as he thinks he is. But he CAN be as good as he thinks he is (meaning the best player of the draft).
To be clear I didn't mean to imply that the Ho Sang was ever going to be a King. I was simply curious as to if he's as good as he says he is. I didn't realize Patty O was that divisive in the 03 draft. My memories of that draft were very simple and I didn't follow the pipeline nearly as closely back then. In fact I'm pretty sure I had no idea who Dustin Brown was. Seems like on further reflection POS is a good comparable in terms of the potential upside/downside since nobody is saying the kid isn't very good as an offensive hockey force.
But he's visibly non-commital to certain aspects of the game and plays small. He's a smart kid though. If he understands, matures, and commits himself more, he could be an exceptional player.
