(From the FanPosts. Carl asks all the right questions. - TZ)
The current Kings roster is essentially the same as it was last season. The Kings won 38 games in a stacked Western Conference. How do they get better? Hawes will play better and get more minutes. Maybe Jason Thompson starts by December and puts up All-Rookie team numbers. Beno is more comfortable with the team and has training camp to prepare.
How many wins is that worth? Can this team contend for a playoff spot? Is Geoff Petrie in a position where he has to make a trade to improve the team, or will he go into the season with roster the Kings have now?
