Jamie Kompon to Be Named Portland Coach and GM
The guy who looks like a human rubber band has failed upwards once again.
He wins a Stanley Cup with the Kings and is then promptly (fired) not resigned (fired) as the Kings won the Cup despite having the worst power play in the league (fired). Chicago picks him up, THEY win a Stanley Cup and then Kompon is promptly (fired) allowed the following season to take a coach and GM job after having the 10th best PP in the league, and the 3rd best goals per game in the playoffs. Why would you get RID of this guy? (fired)
Now he’s coach AND GM?
He’s taking over for Mike Johnston, who was a miserable assistant coach with the Kings but had much success with Portland going to the finals FOUR STRAIGHT SEASONS! Sanctions against the team for multiple violations meant Johnston missed out on winning the Championship (but losing the Memorial cup)
There’s absolutely NO WAY Kompon will be able to match this success! They have SANCTIONS agains them meaning Kompon has NO FIRST ROUND PICKS from 2014-2017
I never understood the fascination with this guy.
Doesn’t he look like a character sharing drinks in a bar with Jar Jar Binks?
I’m going to bust a gut (and its a big gut these days) when the Winter Hawks fail to make the playoffs this season.
Development Camp underway!
I’m not there and I don’t plan on going there. What’s the point. Ever since Tuukka Mantyla came over in 2001 and made me cry he was so God awful, I stopped going.
I also said George Parros would never play a game in the NHL.
I also argued with Dave Taylor about how great Aaron Rome looked.
Remember when Petr Kanko looked like he ate babies for breakfast?
And Ryan Munce was our future?
I even own a Dany Roussin game worn pre-season jersey (#55.. anyone want to buy it?)
I used to love what the Mayor now does. Spend endless amounts of gas money to drive down to the TSC to watch 18 year olds skate and then interview them afterwards to tell me they’ve shaved for the first time but they still haven’t gotten laid yet.
When we get to see them in the NHL 5 seasons from now think about how old you’ll be and what you’ll be doing with your life 5 years from now. Kids. Family. Able to afford good porn.
I was losing out on thousands upon thousands of dollars watching teenagers skate.
Now, I don’t go.
Instead, I spend my days raking in the dough. Much more fun.
So please. Tell me how great these draft picks look! How great they’re going to be!
I loved watching Kozun and Hickey and Deslauriers “develop” over the years… only to be traded away or waived. All that time wasted on “watching them”
If I was at Nash St. today, I would have missed out on the call today with an offer to teach in Japan for a month for more than I make in a year. WOW!
Does anyone else think this is NOT the Kings team that will open the season in October?
I don’t either.
I can’t see Lombardi going into the season without a seasoned vet who doesn’t remind everyone of a pylon. I’m glad “The Jinx” is back for another year and I wasn’t sad that Lombardi let Scuderi go for 4 years and 13.5 million, or Willie Mitchell and his 8.25 million dollar deal. But to rely on Regehr, Schultz and McNabb scares me about as much as being a German in Brazil right about now.
How did Colorado better themselves? Their defense still sucks and Varlamov is more likely to pull a Bryzgalov than he is repeating this years’ performance.
Edmonton signed more FORWARDS? Because that’s just what they needed. I guess they really do plan on beating everyone 7-6.
Brian Boyle took less money NOT to play in Toronto. He went to that shithole Tampa instead. Who voluntarily goes to live in TAMPA?
Isn’t it nice that FIANLLY no player wants to go play in Detroit when there’s no Lidstrom to play with?
Arizona Coyotes. I don’t get it. It’s not like they’re going to actually sell more merchandise.
Let me get this straight. Ryan Kesler actually WAIVES his no trade clause to come play for the Ducks? Think about it.
Jason Labarbera also signed with the Ducks? I’m so praying the other 2 goalies get hurt and he’s their starting goaltender. I want the Ducks fans to go through what we had to go through with him in net.
Root for the Coyotes to have an awful year. Then they’ll fire Dave Tippet, Sutter can retire and the Kings can hire Tippet.
I want to know exactly Mike Ribiero did. Shit in someones locker?
Marion Hossa will be 36 in January – His contract runs out in 2021. To put that in perspective: America will have had 3 Presidents in that time. (Obama, 2016 winner, 2020 winner), The luck you won’t have for breaking a mirror will have run out. Keith Richards will actually, finally, die. Gas prices will be over 6 bucks a gallon. The Cubs will still not have won the World Series. There will only be TWO phone companies and TWO cable companies. They will have found a cure for Cancer, Alzheimers and AIDS.
Jared Boll makes 1.7 million dollars.
Anyone else hope Todd Bertuzzi never plays another NHL game in his fucking life?
Villi Lieno? Anyone? Anyone?
The Brazilian Soccer team will now be the butt end of every “disappear” joke supplanting Malaysian Airliner (which they STILL haven’t found) and Natalee Holloway.
