Yes , Garon has stolen a few games for us..........I guess the real question here is why the ***k didn't DT get us more help at the deadline..........Were his hands tied by TL........Were TL's hands tied by AEG...........We won't ever know because TL says this is the best team ever.........AEG, TL, and DT will use the excuse of injuries as the reason for the colapse........Meanwhile......I will be in 318 until fan appreciation night getting ready for my summer trips to the River instead of planning my life around the playoff schedule........I am so ******g sick of being constantly frustrated ......I AM A ******G KINGS FAN FOR LIFE....but i need something more from this organization............how about a commitment to win the cup......not just make it to the playoffs for the extra revenue..............Dammit!

Luongo is worth two first round picks!! You are totally right!! Whoever said Luongo would be the best goalie the Kings have had since HRUDEY!! HRUDEY HAD A GOOD SEASON...LUONGO STARTED FOR CANADA...FREAKING CANADA..Your right Lunogo does'nt score goals, but he would change the mind set of Kings and their opponets.

As well as blown an equal amount. Look, I like Garon too but I just don't think you can say he is a consistent, game to game number one guy let alone a franchise goaltender. Every consistently good NHL club with a chance at the Cup has a solid number one guy in net, something we've been missing for ages.

Defense (clap-clap) Defense
Someone once said " Your goalie is only as good as your defense" and it's true.
Our defense is a major problem. Aaron Miller has been suckin wind, I think it was the Dallas game where he was responsible for all four goals. Garon can only do so much.
Gleason has been playing injured...it's just all around terrible defense.
Unable to clear the puck, poor passing, letting the other team skate around with the puck on the PK, blah blah blah.
Anyway, It's Adam Deadmarsh night tonight and I can't wait. I loved watching Adam Deadmarsh play. I saw a quote that said " Adam is a hockey players hockey player". That says it perfectly.
He played with a passion and drive that I had never seen before as a Kings fan.
And that's exactly what this team needs right now!!! It needs an Adam Deadmarsh.
Think about it, Adam wasn't the best player or the fastest skater or even the highest goal scorer. Yet he's being honored by a team that he barely played two seasons for.
Why??? Because he played his heart out every single night...the players knew it and the fans knew it.
We miss you Adam. Thanks for showing us how the game is supposed to be played!

For all of you guys still talking about the Luongo trade remember this...Dave Taylor did give up two former first round picks just to get Sopel and Parrish. So if Taylor could have gotten Luongo for that I am sure he would have pulled the trigger. My guess is that the market for Luongo was too high. I bet Florida ends up signing him anyway.

Very good point. Probably right on the mark.

I came...I saw...I was'nt impressed!!
I came all the way from the U.K. to see my team again (usually my wife and I come to watch NHL hockey once a year, this time we chose L.A. again) and the performance by a good majority of players was poor. The man who played with his heart on his sleeve was Avery, he gave it balls out every game we watched.(or on deadmarsh night endured!)
Still, I got to see my team, spent enough in the store to keep them in jobs for a while and have the pleasure of Mr Max Hardcore sit next to us!
My wife knows that if the Kings were to make the Stanley Cup Finals or the Conference Finals I would max out my credit cards to see them.
I think my credit is safe for a long while
