Im with Titan...the "C" belongs to Conroy...now rinker go and give Rob Blake his money back for your PR work...

Definitely give it to Conroy. Lead by example is much better on paper. There were a lot of times on the ice when I would have liked to see Norstrom (I really DO like Matty) get a little more physical and enforce a little more (Darius Hatcher style). My question is - without the C, would Matty do that?
I'm willing to forgive Blake for the way he left, but I agree with the comment above that he came back to retire. He deserves all the fanfare that LA will give him when he retires, but I question if he'll be the impact player he once was.

Iim in section 110 row 19, right next to where your buddy sits. In fact you sat next to me a couple seasons ago. I'll be looking forward to you trying to smack me. Blake desreves the BOOS and so does the G.M. for the move

Amazing that after Blake left in 2001 is when the Kings went on that great playoff run. Even in 2002, the Kings were in 1st place until 3 weeks left in the season. The whole downfall the last few years started with the Allison/Deadmarsh situation. We traded quality players to get them and then when A & D went down with injuries we had nothing to show for it. It seems the Kings are headed in the right direction, but I don't agree with this signing. I never liked Blake when he was here the first time and still don't. We as fans have the right to boo or cheer who we wish, regardless of what color jersey they are wearing. Some fans, like myself, have good memories and remember what Blake did back in 2001. BOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Give the "C" to Blake? You must be joking. I do believe Norstrom shouldn't have it. Give it to conroy. He knows what it takes to go to the cup and he works hard every game. He always goes into the locker with cuts and bruises. GIVE IT TO CONROY!!!

Blake doesn't deserve "C"! I'm so disappointed that Kings signed him so that he can retire in LA. Debating if we keep season tickets....

Yeah right. Give him the C. So he can tear it off, demand to be traded, and then berate the fans again. Have seen that before. I am fine with giving it to Conroy or someone else. But please no Blake. Plus, I am sure by mid-November he will be out with an injury anyway.
I have a lot of confidence in Lombardi. I sure hope he knows what he is doing, but the moves so far......hmmmmm not sure Dean.

Ther is no way that Rob Flake should get to wear any letter, let alone the Captain's letter. He's a punk a$$ who bolted from L.A.
Now you can argue about who deserves the "C" but, unless you're at every meeting, every practice and every game, you have no idea what Norstrom does in the way of "leadership."
Oh, and you're going to miss most of the game trying to smack all the heads of those who boo Flake.

The only guy I see deserving the C right now is Conroy. But definately not Blake.
