    To quote from Rosen:

    A quick scouting report: very fluid skater who excels in transition. LAK saw him play Friday night. Breakthrough season. Better than a point-a-game as an overage D in the WHL. 6-foot-4.

    Sounds OK to me. But, the dude doesn't look 6-4 and 216 pounds. Maybe the pads add some extra bulk, I dunno.

    Blake is signing no body players that won't help the Kings. It isn't about the minor league. Until Blake deals with the high priced players he inherited that are not producing, we will not be seeing any improvement on the Kings.
