There was a post in one of the threads here that listed the top 5 clutch players. Clutch was defined as most ice time with your team winning by 1 goal, or tied, or down by 1 goal in the last 2 minutes of a game. I forget who posted it but it is a telling stat. At that point of a hockey game, salary cap numbers, petty crap and everything else goes right out the window. The coach is going to put the players on the ice that give him the best chance to win, the players he TRUSTS the most, even if just to save his own job. Agreed? Well the other poster, Damn I wish I could find it... Gonna look for it and link if I do, found the stat and out of all the players in the NHL, Scuderi and Smyth were both in the top 5. Does that arguement work any better? Or how about this:Pittsburgh Penguins - Team: Rob Scuderi Official Player Page - Season Stats

That means he is a disciplined player who does not let the offensive teams forwards into the scoring areas they like to be in, and he does it WITHOUT taking stupid penalties.
Los Angeles Kings - Statistics: 2008-2009 Regular Season Stats - Points
Now,for comparison, JJ was a minus 18 with 46 penalty minutes in only 41 minutes played. Meaning JMFJ was on the ice for 41 more goals against than Scuderi was in HALF THE GAMES!!He also took 28 more minutes in penalties in HALF THE GAMES!!!
Now don't get me wrong, I was the biggest "Sign Jack Sign" poster here, and I like his potential also, but PLEASE don't disrespect Rob Scuderi to make a point about other teams GM's wanting JJ more than
him. IMHO there are probably alot of teams that have their "offensive defenseman" positions set and would love to have a Scuderi on their roster, IMHO.

I believe the Quincey deal is going to bite the Kings in the a$$. That player is solid and will be for a long time. If your going to trade him trade him for someone that is fresh. I say a panic move from DL to get a name.
I hope it works, however, it will be tough to watch Quincey scoring while Smyth is on the IR.

"But every year Iíve had a greater desire to make the playoffs with LA in particular. It means a lot to rise from the bottom with the team with which youíve debuted.Ē

Plenty more quotes from FRO that say " I want to be in LA" Just to busy, (lazy),LOL to look them up. I think, He has gone on record enough times saying he wants to stay in LA, how special it will be to make the playoffs and win the cup with The Kings , that yes he wants to be here.

considering Quincey had back surgery, I doubt he is the player he was for at least a year

What is with the JMFJ bashing and the disappointment on Frolov possibly being traded? Give Jack a chance, yeah he is a minus/minus, but he still has some talent. I would love to see some posters on here have a ton of expectations thrown on them, then when other people's expectations aren't met, be thrown to the wolves!!! Give it some time and wait until the end of this upcoming season to do your reviews/bitching and complaining!!! Enjoy the hockey, enjoy watching the kids grow and team gel!!!
Cheers to another year of Kings hockey!!!!

I dont think any of you watched the World Championships this year. Jack was the leading goal scoring defencemen on the team. This is going to be his breakthrough year, I can just feel it. He is an amazing player, he has not had the chance to fully showcase what hes got. All of you are gonna be biting your nails once he tears some **** up this year.

Here's to Scuderi kicking butt and Jack Johnson having a breakthrough season where everyone is happy. For a team to work you need all types. Superstar goal scorers, defensive dynamos (sp?), and role players of all types.
Here's to LA, a good season and a good run.
