Crackpot Roster Musings: Kings 09-10

Assumptions: Kings sign one of Hossa, Gaborik or Havlat. Kings keep the number five pick and select MSP, Kane or Duchene, whoever is left.

FORWARDS:

If Hossa or Havlat:

Frolov/Kopitar/Hossa-Havlat

Williams/Stoll/Brown [North American drive-to-the-net ass-kicking, hits and goals]

Lewis/Handzus/Simmonds [shut-down]

Purcell/Loktionov/Moller [the real first line]

If Gaborik:

Frolov/Kopitar/Williams

Gaborik/Stoll/Brown

Lewis/Handzus/Simmonds

Purcell/Loktionov/Moller

[The #5 pick will obviously have the opportunity to dislodge one of Lewis, Purcell, Loktionov or Moller (or Wudrick, for that matter). I'm willing to imagine that one of the realistically too-young prospects surprises everyone and makes the team, but I've chosen Loktionov as my representative of that crackpot fantasy. Could easily be Kane, Duchene, MSP -- whichever one -- or Wudrick.]

DEFENSE:

Johnson/Doughty

Quincey/Greene

SOD/Hickey

Voynov/Drewiske

 

GOAL:

Quick

Ersberg
