*One guy drafted was drafted from a Canadian college in Quebec but I had no idea where to put him so I stuck him here.

**Includes both college players (4) and kids from the USHL and NAHL (5).

***Dean was appointed general manager 2 months before this draft so he used Dave Taylor's scouts. You can tell.

****Total includes Oscar Moller, although he should probably be considered a European player. I don't know if Dean would have drafted him if he hadn't already come over, though.

 

Dean loves English-speaking Canada and the United States, hates everyone else. Well, OK, he sometimes likes Russians.

It's interesting that Dean has primarily drafted forwards from the WHL and defensive players from the Q since historically the WHL is known as a defensive league and the Q is known as an offensive one. That has changed in recent years and it seems like Dean has followed that change.


Who are the Kings going to draft?

I'm going to guess that the Kings will trade up to either draft a Western Canadian or American forward in the 2nd round. They are not going to draft a non-Russian European because Dean hates them. Before the pick, they'll talk about Drew Doughty even though he's not even there. The pick will cause the TSN booth to shuffle their papers and stare blankly for a few seconds before Bob McKenzie rattles off something. Pierre McGuire will annoy everybody.
