No Carter, No Problem
My God I love this picture!
Two students of mine sung the National Anthem before the game.
They can do so every single time from now on.
That was a beatdown of epic proportions and THAT folks, is what a 60 minute game looks like.
31 seconds in? 2 fights back-to-back? When do you ever get to see that? Maybe at my Irish family reunion when the Glenfiddich bottle’s been emptied.
Ever since Kopitar’s new contract was announced, he’s been hotter than a ticket to “Star Wars”…. wait…. what….? You mean he’s just on fire? He’s happy?
Hat’s off to Tyler Toffoli for stepping up in Carter’s absence.
I mean, think about this: Vancouver is at home, they’re behind the Kings in points and they lay a GooseEgg? Isn’t this the kind of shit the Kings used to do?
Quick now has 40 shutouts?
Forbort scored his first goal! Yahoo…. and took another stupid penalty
Did you have any doubt Jake Muzzin’s match penalty would be revoked? Of course you didn’t because the two boneheaded refs who called the Phoenix game should be…. no…. I’m going to be nice. A kinder, gentler, Matt Barry.
With the trade deadline coming up, don’t you find it a bit curious Darryl Sutter chooses NOW to call out Dustin Brown? Shouldn’t he have done this, say, at the START of the season?
Scouts will be watching each other heavily as the trade deadline has been moved up a week earlier to February this year instead of the customary March.
Lombardi likely won’t. How do you trade a two time Stanley Cup winning CAPTAIN? Well, Lombardi has never been one to let go of his favorite sons (Richards, Matt Greene (4 years, Dean?)) save for Wayne Simmonds.
For the record, Brown had ZERO hits tonight. ZERO.
Also, don’t you find it a bit curious that Lombardi would let his best prospect, Adrian Kempe play in the world juniors and demand that he “be the best” – Don’t kid yourself, he’s trying to increase his trade value. I watched him play in the 1-0 defeat of the US and he wasn’t even playing against Matthews. He’s “good” but he certainly wasn’t “the best.”
That elusive defenseman – I still don’t believe the Kings go on a long playoff streak without a Robyn Regehr, Willie Mitchell, Rob Scuderi… not that Scuderi was a “banging” defenseman, but the Kings need one. That’s why they were smart enough to go out and trade for McNabb.
Voynov sure did fuck things up, didn’t he? HE is the reason the Kings had to trade their 1st round pick and a high prospect to grab Sekera… only to lose him to free agency.
What is it about the name KANE that sparks “date rape?” – Let’s hope THIS one doesn’t shell out the big bucks and is actually charged. If this is you or me, we’d be cell mates with Bubba… then again, I would hope my readers would have the common sense to know better and that “no means NO”
