"Even if you're late, you have to get in good with the quarterback," Bailey said. It was traffic over a bridge that held up Bailey and Pawlawski that day.

The scouts who are shaping the Kings' future have driven through snowstorms on twisty mountain roads in British Columbia to see games and have crept across the Canadian prairie guided by hope and a GPS device telling them the next turn is 120 miles away. They've looked at gangly, teenaged defensemen for glimpses of what they might become, sought signs a scrawny winger will develop broad shoulders and tough skin. They've projected who's destined to be a difference-maker, a sixth defenseman at best, a career minor-leaguer.
