I think the key issue here is thus: They won the cup.
No matter what they do THIS year, unless they win it again, it won't be good enough.
Does anyone seriously expect the Kings to play this year? I don't. I think we'll make it in at 7th seed and then get washed out in the first round, if we're lucky. Nobody on this team right now besides Quick maybe (maybe) gives a **** about this season.

I think that's a bit extreme. And choosing Quick as the becon of greatness on this team is an odd choice so far. The Kings seem to have really missed a pre-season. Guys like Richards have been honest that they are not up to game shape. I don't think it is a lack of character. It is a lack of preparation. Was that becuase of winning the Cup. Probably. Lack of character, I don't think so. For reference, please see Spring of 2012.

Man that was hard to watch last night. Lost all me karma on that one. Oh well back to the street corner I go.

I didn't watch enough of Bernier to judge but, Quick has looked like he's completely lost all confidence.
Since the Nashville game, he's looked Cloutiemanekesque.
As things go from the goal out, that attitude has permeated through the whole team.
No idea how you stop that but, it's gotta be stopped.

Goaltending was the least of the Kings' problems last night. Quick wasn't great (it happens) and Bernier got thrown to the wolves after having not played in 2 and half decades. Until this team can put together a mix of good offense and good defense, they'll struggle. I'm not even talking great. Just good. So far, every game has either seen awful offense or awful defense or both. The exception might be the Phoenix game.

The league might find an even worse punishment...FOR US... That would be continuing to see Stool back playing regular shifts...
