Quick Hurt in SO Loss
Ryan Miller was sending a message.
Don’t send me to the glue factory just yet.
He stopped torpedoes, he stopped howitzers, he stopped my grandma’s string bean casserole.
It’s just one of those games. Can’t get pissed off about it. 45 shots (the ones that counted), is very un-Kings like.
- Linden Vey is here to stay. OT power play time, winning face-offs (13 out of 22) – hell, he might make Jarret Stoll expendable.
- Tyler Toffoli – it’s good to see a player who actually likes to shoot the puck
- Matt Frattin – didn’t score but he’s looking a lot more comfortable. At least the Kings got an ugly goal late to grab an important point but twice they had power plays in OT and didn’t convert.
- They gave up ANOTHER power play goal (ugh)
- Quick was hurt (per the L.A. times, he’s heading back to L.A. for further evaluation – UPDATE: Mayor Reporting Martin Jones Called Up, my source says “no idea” on how extensive the injury is) and Scrivens looked like Jason LaBarbera in the shootout. What the hell did Quick DO to Heisenberg that he was felled? Was it the dreaded Ricin that was slipped into his coffee?
- When did Darryl Sutter suffer a concussion? How else can you explain putting Trevor Lewis in the shootout? That guy couldn’t score a goal with NO GOALIE! (Although 2 in game 6 vs the Devils, I’ll take) This was completely dumb ass. Of course, had he scored, Darryl would be GENIUS, but he didn’t so he’s dumb ass.
- How many stupid penalties can Jake Muzzin take? MY GOD, this guy puts the Kings down EVERY GAME! This time his miscue cost Voynov a puck in the chest. A few more inches and he’s taking one in the face and I’m flushing Muzzin down a toilet with my Popeye sized arms.
-They lost in Buffalo, again!
Steve Ott was credited with 10 hits.
Morning Update: Of COURSE after the game, Buffalo does a complete overhaul and hires Jordan Nolan’s DAD as coach… AFTER THEY PLAY THEM TWICE!!!!
Jack-In-The-Box’ Munchie Meal – How GREAT is this advertising! Acknowledging young adults are… um… hungry at night. I would venture to guess Jack-in-the-Box is a big supporter of legalizing marijuana.
Has anyone asked WHO owns Barry’s tickets, why he has so much inventory and how he gets all that free radio advertising? Hmmm?
Last Tuesday, November 5th, the Kings held our annual Meet the Players event at the Los Angeles Zoo. We pride ourselves on holding first-class events that give our Season Ticket Members exclusive access to our players, alumni, and broadcasters. Unfortunately, last Tuesday we failed to live up to the high standards that we set as an organization, and on behalf of the entire Kings family, I would like to apologize for this failure.
We acknowledge that we are accountable to our fans, and we accept full responsibility for the shortcomings of the event. Everyone at the Kings cares deeply about the experience of our fans, especially our valued Season Ticket Members, and going forward we will make sure that we account for all possible eventualities when planning future fan events.
As a token of our appreciation for your support, we will be sending all Season Ticket Members a $10 voucher redeemable toward merchandise at the Team LA store. We understand that this voucher may not necessarily make up for a missed player interaction, however please accept this as acknowledgement of an inadequate event experience. We will be mailing this voucher to you within several weeks.
Once again, please accept my personal apology on behalf of the entire LA Kings organization, and my thanks for all of the feedback that we have received to date. We will be using all of this information and our recent experience to ensure that all fan events going forward meet and exceed the standards that we have set for ourselves. Go Kings Go!

As I mentioned, they’ve had YEARS to get this right and they never do. It’s always a disaster no matter WHERE they have it.
You know what DID work?
When we all got our picture taken with the Stanley Cup.
The lines were long, but they moved FAST and it was WELL ORGANIZED. They had a professional photographer taking pictures (which you could then purchase for a hefty fee) and then GET OUT.
Why the Kings don’t adapt to this format is a mystery to me.
Want to do it right?
Have it at Dodger stadium.
1) parking is easy
2) you’re on the field which is fun for the kids
3) plenty of open space
4) 1/2 the players take photos while the other half signs stuff. An hour later SWITCH.
5) booths to sell merchandise
Can’t do Dodger Stadium? I’ve been to the Convention Center where they swear in 4,000 immigrants at once. That place is HUGE. It’s right next door to Staples!
