Up on the homepage right now we have an in-depth preview for the LA Kings’ 2013 NHL Draft, where we also reviewed GM Dean Lombardi’s history of making at least one trade on each selection weekend since taking over in 2006.
So, he’s entering this year’s event with 10 total draft picks over the seven rounds. As explained here, he’s very likely at some point to package a few picks and move up several slots…he’s also known for trading a late round pick or two to the following year.
At least one of his current NHL roster players is also expected to be dealt on Sunday. Again, as reviewed here.
Just for fun then, how many total drafted players (new draftees, not acquired via trade…this isn’t a trick question) do you think Lombardi ends up leaving New Jersey with?
Poll closes at the conclusion of the first round.
For what it’s worth, earlier today we put the over/under at seven.
