    Default The Pipeline - Who Gets a Shot and When

    With the core of this team being fairly young and some decent prospects in the system, I was wondering what folks thought about when we will begin to see some of the kids with the big club.
    I'm no expert when it comes to the prospects and the new waiver rules make it even more complicated to know when they have to get their shot or be exposed to waivers.

    But I thought I'd list out the prospects that are likely to see the NHL at some point and we can guess as to what's going to happen with them. Traded? Crack the lineup? Never see the NHL?

    Am I missing any other prospects that have a real chance?

    Forwards

    Andy Andreoff
    Adrian Kempe
    Maxim Kitsyn
    Michael Mersch
    Nickolay Prokhorkin
    Nick Shore
    Jordan Weal
    Valentin Zykov

    Defense

    Andrew Bodnarchuk
    Nick Ebert
    Derek Forbort
    Kevin Gravel
    Roland McKeown

    I think the ones we see earliest are Bodnarchuk and Forbort. They have seniority at a position where the current players are the oldest/frailest.

    Up front, given the waiver situation, I'd say we don't see Andreoff or Weal until next season unless they do something very special or the Kings have some serious issues.

    i would argue skill>seniority in most cases i.e. Pearson.

    where is Campbell in this? I liked what I saw from him last year when doughty was out.

    Forwards

    Andy Andreoff- A year or two
    Adrian Kempe- 2 years at least
    Maxim Kitsyn- May have a shot in 15/16. Maybe a few games this season?
    Michael Mersch- No clue
    Nickolay Prokhorkin- Same as Kitsyn
    Nick Shore- Same as Kitsyn
    Jordan Weal- Same as Kitsyn
    Valentin Zykov- This is an interesting one. A couple years off. BUT he truly believes he can make it this season. He believed he could have made it last season. Not in a bad "I should have made it, this sucks" way. In a confident, good, typical DL character way.

    Defense

    Andrew Bodnarchuk. No clue
    Nick Ebert- No clue
    Derek Forbort- A few games this season?
    Kevin Gravel- Same
    Roland McKeown- Makes it or is gone. (Edit<---- I read it wrong...meant McNabb makes it or is gone via waivers. McKeown in a couple years away in my opinion)

    Goalies

    Patrick Bartosak-. long way off
    JF Berub- long way off

    I am sorry....I screwed up on this one. I was thinking about McNabb....Got my names screwed up. That will teach me to work on the phones while talking on the boards.

    He is three years away.

    Is the Prohorkin situation clarified? Will the KHL let him sign DL's contract? Last I heard it was back to muddy waters.

    Edit* This is the last news I saw

    Nikolai Prokhorkin has not signed with the Kings &mdash; LA Kings Insider
