Possible trades as the ping pong ball drops

As the days continue, and the Los Angeles Kings continue to lose, it is fair for one to beleive that they will land the first overall pick.

If you watch TSN enough, and see all the constant reminders, Steven Stamkos is the shoe in to go number one. So if Los Angeles selects him, they have a future team leader which is great for the a young and blossoming team, but they are also faced with a major problem, five centres who all have the possibility of being on the teams top line.

Mike Cammalleri – Great player who still has tons of potential
Anze Kopitar – All-star
Patrick O’Sullivan – great young player with a eye for the net
Steven Stamkos – 1st overall pick
Michal Handzus – More like a second or third line centre (no trade value)

Also Derek Armstrong – don’t see him anywhere else but on the 4th

Now I’m not calling the Kings a great team, because their record speaks otherwise, but they do have a very good staff up front and with Stamkos coming they are going to have to cut at least one of these centers lose.

So my question is, where would you like to see one of these players go?

I personally see Cammaleri as the guy who will be suiting up for another team next season.

Here is what the various ramblings say top 10 picks will look like

1. Steven Stamkos
2. Drew Doughty
3. Alex Pietrangelo
4. Zach Bogosian
5. Kyle Beach
6. Cody Hodgson
7. Nikita Filatov
8. Colin Wilson
9. Mikkel Boedker
10. Luke Schenn

So seeing this do you see there being any other fallout from this years draft?
Do you have a different top ten?
