    Default F$#k it! I'm gonna be Mr. Positive.

    Yup.
    I've been very dour, as have all of us this last stretch. But after Tip-A-King I feel like there is gonna be a turn around. And even if there isn't, I'm gonna bet on the Kings and believe in their ability to come back from deficits, shut down games late, take advantage of opportunities and limit needless turnovers until they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

    Flame away, make all the rational arguments you like. I will keep my fingers in my ears and be cheery.
    ..Cuz, **** it! I'm happy, and rooting for a team(even a losing team) is better when I'm having fun

    Did Carter give you extra time in the photo booth?

    in all seriousness, good attitude to have. I'm trying to think the same way.

    I think most rational arguments would support your positive position. It's the irrational verbal diarrhea that yammers on about how we're all doomed.

    I've been keeping the lid on the panic button until at least after the Olympic Break. Keep in mind they went through a similar slump in 2012, and we all know how that turned out in the end. I'm holding out hope that they can turn things around and get back to playing top-level hockey in time for the playoff push.

    I find it hilarious that so many folks are getting their panties in a bunch over something they absolutely have no control over. They somehow feel that their bitching will have some effect on the situation.

    Agreed. Let's face it: this place gets depressing after a prolonged streak of bad play.

    NICE to see someone is a true blue fan. None of us really know what forces are at work. It's all subjective conjecture and all teams have dry spells. Fox said the Disney Ducks lost 8 out 11 games in November of last year, and they are number 1.

    Hockey games can turn around in minutes, and the Kings have had comebacks....all the way to The Cup. And besides, for me, at the very least, I've been a fan since Gretzky and have seen Kings make it and many times not. I'm not about to stop backing them after decades. What kind of character does one have if they only support their team when they are winning, I would not want to be one of those fans who all of a sudden become a fan when a team is winning, or stop when they lose. That would be arduous, to keep changing teams....expensive too. I look at it this way, it's about loyalty and support...and not being a quitter. I wear my Kings gear proudly in South OC (believe me, there are very few Kings fans down here in Duck land), and each time a Duck fan says something like "...it's not that I hate the Kings, it's the fans," I remind them of how I'm a fan (duh), the Kings beat the Ducks last year, and beat them again the year before we won the cup.

    ALL teams have dry spells. There are some great players on the Kings roster. I'm sure they aren't happy about their performance. My guess is some of them are paranoid they will receive that call "pack up, you have been traded to..." I'd hate to be one of the many guys who have 0 goals. The Kings are a great team, organization, and finally I'd like to say something grand that puts it all in the right perspective.

    The LA Kings put hockey on the map here in CA. There would be no San Jose or Anaheim teams, if it wasn't for the Kings bringing hockey to So Cal. The Kings have paid their dues and earned the R in respect....I know the Kings are a strong organization, and they don't wish to lose and will be back. Do you really think Luc is happy and doing nothing about it? Just wait, it will happen, they will come back. Best part about comebacks is all the naysayers feel and look stupid. Kings were so far down as a seed for the Cup in 2012, certainly, there was a plethora of naysayers back then.....and WE WON THE STANLEY CUP. I am sure there have been a lot of fans who have jumped ship since the days of playing in the Forum. No way am I changing teams, I'm a King fan, for real, forever, and it was so fn great to see them win the Stanley Cup. 2012 wasn't so long ago, and considering all the injuries the Kings did pretty good last season.

    Just a few months ago, I saw the Kings in a preseason game at the Pond, when they pummeled the Ducks, and beat them 6-1. We didn't have Quick but the Ducks had their A Team (Perry, Selanie, Getslaf all played that preseason game where they got spanked), so it can be done. Have faith. GO KINGS! Many times the players have said they win at home because of the fans, the team needs our support...remember the Ducks fans "those Kings fans are crazy, too rowdy, backing their team..." We have a reputation to live up to.
