    Default Kings should try to add another 1st round pick in 2020 Draft -- How could we do it?

    The 2020 Draft is thought to be possibly one of the best ever.

    The Historic Talent of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft:
    https://thepuckauthority.com/the-his...l-entry-draft/


    Excerpt:
    "At first glance, the 2020 NHL Draft could very well go down in history as one of the deepest
    and greatest of all time. Led by Alexis Lafreniere, the 2020 class is riddled with elite prospects of varying position..."
    https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/06/...31-off-season/

    This behooves us to at least try to add a couple more picks, as high up as we can get.

    The closer we get to this draft, the harder it will likely get.

    Trade possibilities:

    Not a lot, But there is 1 gem we could part with----Jack Campbell.

    He should be a viable candidate for a straight-up player-for-pick trade, for the right team.
    He's a fine goalie and a great teammate. But that's why he's worth a 1st-rounder, IMO.

    Kings will be far from a PO team for the next year or 2. Campbell's talents will be wasted,
    except for stealing a few undeserved wins for us and hurting our draft chances.

    Forbort could be moveable for a pick (2nd rounder?) to a cup contender, by the deadline.
    Martinez, possibly, for same?

    If we cultivate both Carter and Kovy as scorers (i.e. put Carter on Kopi's wing, and figure out
    a way to give Kovy more icetime), their trade value would increase.

    If either one gets going, I say, trade 'em by the deadline to a contender.

    If we could, for example, get Kovy going on a 30-goal pace, he'd be appealing to a cup hopeful team.
    (NJ would be a one good destination, if they have a good year and make a PO run).

    In any case, I'd like to try to get another 1st and/or 2nd round pick or 2 in the 2020 Draft,
    if it's at all possible.

    Kings really need to add more quality young talent.

    I accidentally double-posted this, and I cannot find a way to delete the other one.

    But I did try.

    Edmonton's first round pick could likely be had, but it comes with Lucic. Personally, I'd consider it. His numbers only fell off when he went to the den of despair, and by all indications he's a good teammate. If Edmonton retains a little salary, and something replaceable goes the other way, it could make sense.

    Take Clarkson ($5.25M, ltir) from VGK for their 2 extra 2nd round picks.
    Hossa from Ari ($5.3M, $5.3M ltir) for a 1st

    The Kings roster is like a late stage game of Tetris. What they really need is a long skinny piece but all we keep getting are Kyle Clifford and Nate Thompson shaped blocks.

    4 years is too long. Kings should look to take bad cap hit for the next 2. That gets a lot of the dead money off the board. (Kovy, Phaneuf buyout, Richards) and only 1 year of Brown and Carter left. Plus lockout and expansion out of the way.

    If we can get a bunch of 2nd rounders we can trade them for 1st rounders.

    If we can get a bunch of 3rd rounders we can trade them for 2nd rounders

    If we can get a bunch of 4th rounders we can trade them for 3rd rounders

    If we can get a bunch of 5th rounders we can trade them for 4th rounders

    etc....
