dont kid yourself tho with the youth thing, you arent exactly the penguins out there champ, young or old crappy is still crappy.
That's fine, however (named the Kings the number one in organizational standings)and most hockey knowledgeable people that I know of say the Kings are on their way.

Strengths: The Kings have two of the top 10 prospects (Jack Johnson and Patrick O'Sullivan) on Hockey's Future's Top 50 list and a third (Jonathan Bernier) also on the list, three players who could be the top prospect for 90 percent of the other teams in the league. The fact that the Kings have all three lifts them to elite status. A forward, a defenseman and a goaltender, the cupboards in LA are stocked very well indeed. There are also NCAA stars Brian Boyle and Scott Parse as well as notables Trevor Lewis, Joey Ryan and Richard Petiot. Weaknesses: You don't get to be at the top of the list if you have many holes so any faults with the Kings prospect pool would only be found with a microscope. The right wing might be a bit thinner than the other positions as former first rounder Lauri Tukonen's 13 goals and 32 points in the AHL this year was a small drop in production. Top Five Prospects: Jack Johnson (D), Patrick O'Sullivan (LW), Jonathan Bernier (G), Brian Boyle (C), Lauri Tukonen (RW) Key Graduates: Anze Kopitar

Chew on that Chadta...
