OK folks... I am about to explode waiting on the draft! I've given up on us hiring a coach. Morty and I talked it over and decided Moose will be the backup, and also coach the team. On days when Moose is in goal, Marc Crawford's hair will be brought in to coach. Not Marc Crawford, just his hair.
Morty also has got me thinking about the Kings #2 pick. I want it. What have the Kings been missing since the beginning of time? That's right, a goalie. What do we have a plethora of? That's right. Not sure what would be fair market value for the #2 pick. Pavelec, our #29 pick and top prospect/roster player? What say you faithful Chronicle readers? Is that enough? Too much?
If that happens (unlikely by the way, but still fun to speculate!) we should take both Doughty and Bogosian. Our defense would be: Tobi, Havelid, Bogo, Doughty, UFA(Orpik$?$), Klee/X/Shitnik/whoever I forgot about. Then possibly sign Ryan Malone and we are much better.
First thing first, we have to decide as an organization what goalie to go with. Is now the time to do that with Kari needing a new contract? Or do we give Pavelec another year or two to get his feet on solid ground? If Kari is our man (and why shouldn't he be?) then we need to move Pavelec. I know it is a little risky, but we have too many holes to fill. We could get a key piece in return. Good Lord this is exciting!!!!!!!!!! So many possibilities!!
What say you Blueland? Am I totally off my rocker?
