Kings will keep the No. 2 pick

From the LA Times. This makes it even more sure that the Thrashers will get Zach Bogosian.

[GM Dean Lombardi] confirmed Thursday night that he has had offers from three teams in the last two weeks for the No. 2 pick (widely expected to be [Drew] Doughty, a defenseman with the Guelph Storm). The most recent proposal came Tuesday, essentially a three-for-one deal -- a current player, a prospect and a draft choice for the pick.

But Lombardi went to Kings ownership, as he had with the other two, and recommended they reject the offer. He said everyone wanted to keep the selection.
