Goalie:          M. Blackwood,

 

 

Off Season Team Needs:  A lot!  5 x top 6 F’s, 2 x top 4 D, Back up G

 

 

Free Agency:     LA has money to spend in free agency, the questions is will the Kings GM spend any of it.

 

This team in the middle of a re-build, with lots of you players on the DCHL / Farm team rosters.  There is a lot of talent coming up that will take at least 1 year to develop.  Adding a couple of quality veteran forwards and a defencemen could help the teams young players develop.

 

But the Kings GM could also decide to only add cheap players to try and get a really good pick in the 2021 draft to add to the prospect pool.

 

 

2020 / 2021 Season Outlook:    Even if the kings add a few top free agents, this team will struggle to make the playoffs, they just have too many needs to fill.

 

This team should be able to compete for a long time in a couple of years.

 

 

Top Prospects / Under 25’s:   T. Gettinger, G. Smith, C. Glass, M. Shaw, S. Mattheos, J. Leschyshyn, T. Thompson, J. Hawryluk, O. Wahlstrom, T. Fix-Wolansky, G. Denisenko, S. Fagemo, J. Farinacci, Y. Spiridonov, C. Caufield, M. Laferriere, V. Kolyachonok, R. Merkley, M. Vande Sompel, J. Marino, A. Fox, S. Niku, L. Gawanke, M. Blackwood, I. Saville.

 

 

Future Outlook:     LA accumulated many prospects and you players that will help them in the near future.  The Kings GM was particularly aggressive in his pursuit of potential # 1 Cody Glass.

 

The question for some of the Kings prospects is will they reach their potential? 

 

Guys like Denisenko (effort/ work ethic), Merkley (attitude / bad teammate) and Wahlstrom (effort/ work ethic), have tons of talent but each of them have had questions attached to their future for different reasons.
