Pick from Flyers drops from #45 to #59

San Jose's loss means that the pick we got from them in last year's pick swap moves up from #149 all the way to #148. Woot. Philadelphia's win means that the pick we got from them in the Denis Gauthier trade, which had already been on the move from #45 down to #57, now drops further to #59. It's the only Kings pick that could still change. If the Flyers win the cup, the pick becomes #60.

The silver lining in Philly winning the cup is that they traded their first round pick to Anaheim, in the Pronger trade. That pick was one shoot-out away from being #13 overall. Getting into the playoffs made it drop to #15. Now that they're in the cup finals, the pick is at #29. And could go to #30.

Here are the Kings picks, as it stands. They have nine: one in the first, two in the second, two in the third, one in each of the last four rounds.

  1. Kings 1st -- pick #22 #19
  2. Kings 2nd -- pick #52 #49
  3. Flyers 2nd (Denis Gauthier trade) -- pick #45 #59.
  4. Rangers 3rd (Brian Boyle trade) -- pick #70
  5. Kings 3rd -- pick #82 #79
  6. Kings 4th -- pick #112 #109
  7. Sharks 5th (pick swap 2008) -- pick #149 #148
  8. Kings 6th -- pick #172 #169
  9. Kings 7th (Fredrik Modin trade; Kings keep pick due to not winning the Cup) -- pick #202 #199

Kings 5th -- pick #142 #139 was sent to the Avs in the Ryan Smyth trade.
