    Just goes to show that one of DL's greatest contribution to the Kings has been the proper development of prospects.

    I still don't understand why the Ramparts couldn't just trade his rights to another team in the Q that has a spot for an import player...

    Wow. I actually feel really bad for the kid. He's clearly not ready but the team around him is so poor that he has not choice but to try to keep his head above water.

    I believe that they can trade his rights. It sounds like they just don't want to. Oscar Moller's WHL rights were traded while he was still up with the Kings in 2009*. However, that situation is potentially different because it's WHL vs. Q league rules.

    I know of 1 TRUE way to ruin a prospect, and that's if they get drafted by the Edmonton Oilers.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I figured this thread would be about Nail Yakupov.
