I like what DL has done this offseason. At the halfway point last season the Kings were number 2 or 3 in the standings. There was a huge breakdown in the season with Character problems. So DL has made it a priority not to blow up the roster but rather pick up character players and veterans to mesh with the young players that we have. We have alot of young players on the team like O'sullivan, Anze Kopitar (18 years old should be VERY GOOD already getting rave reviews from our development camp this week), Konstantin Pushkarev ,Tim Gleason, Dustin Brown, Alexander Frolov and the list goes on. So DL acquired veteran character players to show these young guns how to play and work hard etc. From what im hearing the Kings will probably make another trade and possibly another signing for Lindros/Peca/Nolan etc.
