This is Completely Pathetic!
I haven’t seen a scoring drought this bad since I was actually paying to watch Dmitri Khristich and Ray Ferraro.
The Flyers had won only 1 of their last 6 games. So playing the Kings was perfect for them.
It’s bad enough the Kings couldn’t score a goal in front of 54,000 fans. It’s bad enough the Kings scored one lone goal against the Penguins, but yesterday they had a FULL PRACTICE. To be shutout for the 3rd time in the last 5 games for THIS TEAM is not only pathetic, it’s downright insulting to its customers and fans.
Once again they bored the ever loving shit out of their fans. Aren’t you glad you spent money and time to watch this absolute bore-a-thon? I don’t care HOW many shots you have, if they’re all in the goaltenders breadbasket, what’s the point?
Sure, Toffoli looks nice on the top line, but the other 3 lines? As invisible as Casper the friendly ghost.
Please, somebody, anybody, Canadian King, Scooty, ANYONE tell me what kind of compromising positions with a donkey Muzzin has on Sutter. Not only was his pass to Doughty intercepted, THEN he takes Lecavalier (whom Quick was square to) instead of Simmonds who was so wide open even Stevie Wonder could have scored.
Trevor Lewis has 2 goals on 65 shots. No wonder nobody wants to play on his line. That’s only a 3% success rate. If any one of us, in our job, had a 3% success rate, we’d be unemployed.
Another wasted day spent watching this crap.
Robyn Regehr played in his 1,000th game today. He’s only the 19th defenseman to do so. Who cares.
It must be contagious. The Sharks have only scored 1 goal in their last 3 games prior to their tilt against Chicago.
To those of you going to Tip-A-King (I can only imagine the bright smiles on Kings players faces), would you kindly ask the players for a REFUND!
Dean Lombardi – “We’re built for the playoffs. We don’t want to sacrifice our identity just to go out and score a few more goals. We’ll probably have to make a little adjustment here. It’s important to maintain that we are one of the best defensive teams in the league and that’s the way we’re gonna keep it.”
When asked if Toffoli, Vey and Pearson were the answer or if he has to go outside the organization, Lombardi replied, “I would guess its going to be a combination. We have high expectations for those 3 players. We have to do a better job as an organization insuring kids like this who are arguably playing in your top 7 eventually get there and its one of the areas that we haven’t excelled at and these are 3 players who have the ability to get there.”
Anyone else notice Dan Carcillo is skating a regular shift in New York and doing well? More proof Sutter’s “system” is suffocating to the players.
BOB MCKENZIE on TRADES:
How badly do the Los Angeles Kings need/want scoring?
McKenzie: They desperately need scoring and, unfortunately for them, there’s nothing front line available right at this moment. Matt Moulson would be a great rental from the Buffalo Sabres, but the price is high – a first-round pick and a prospect – and he’s injured until after the Olympic break.Mike Cammalleri is another rental who’d be very good. The conventional wisdom is that he’ll become available, but right now, the Calgary Flames are still talking to him about a contract, so technically, he’s not yet available. OnThomas Vanek, the New York Islanders have to decide what they’re going to do, but that will be a last-minute decision right at the deadline. Either they’re all in adding players or selling Thomas Vanek as a rental to cut their losses. But here’s another interesting name: Sam Gagner of the Edmonton Oilers. He’s got two years left, not a rental, at a $4.8 million cap hit. It will be tough to make the numbers work on a cap-heavy team like the Los Angeles Kings, but he is a player of interest.
