    What are the odds that the best people for those jobs are former Kings players who played with upper management? Oiltastic.

    Vegas success will now be their downfall. For their 2nd ever draft, they’re going to not pick until the end of the 2nd round, and have like 3 or 4 picks total. They’re now going to have a gap in their dev pool in a few years, and they’ll fall from contention.

    Watch trader George go and do something stupid like dealing all his 2019 picks for a soon to be washed up Karlsson and then throw stupid money at him, and I’m going to laugh for years.
    No.
    GMGM traded for most of his good players. Some LOLGMs were so worried about losing a prospect they gave away good players. (Florida)

    But you're right, GMGM is going to kill what he assembled. 1st, 2nd, 3rd for Tatar. Marchessault long term deal. Waiting to see what Fleury gets. Re-signing Englland and other marginals. Signing WKarlsson on his 25% shooting percentage.

    Agreed. He needs to start bringing up the kids and having a year like an expansion team does, unless he decides to....

    The super scary part from their perspective is, what if he goes and deals all the stuff he stockpiled for EKarlsson and watch them not pick in the first round until 2021, then mortgage their future for the "Greatest Defenseman in the NHL" according to the ****wits in Canada.

    Playing Vegas is going to be very different next year for all the NHL teams, especially the Pacific Division ones. Teams will stay away from the strip when they are in Vegas. Watch their home record plummet in comparison because there won't be the "Vegas Flu" going around.
    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 would send a resume, but I think that putting "Booing Blake" under skills and experience would be a dealbreaker.

    Just wanted to point out that if the NHL was anywhere near close to being an optimally managed league, you probably wouldn't get an expansion team making the finals. Could be all fluke though. I don't know if they'll make the playoffs next year. Probably not. If they do, it's probably even more evidence there are a whole lot people in exec roles that shouldn't be there. Ironically, this SCF might turn out to be a roadblock to long-term success, because where do you go from here? You have this likely fluke and emotionally spent players with big contacts coming up and you haven't even started yet building the organization.

    So is there anyone in the Kings' front office that didn't previously play for them about 20 years ago?
