fwiw, at least sutter has moved brown to the 2nd pp unit
Well I pretty much gave up on this team last year in January. I guess I'll just give up on them after this abortion of a game. (Now watch them win the next 43 in a row.)
well... I bet against them today and yeah I enjoyed winning some money, but I would have preferred to do a thread for you guys. not that it would have been a good one since it was pretty much a s*** show. at least quick can still play.
How can anyone say Doughty "needs to earn his paycheck?" He's been amazing so far. The dude's playing half the game and playing it at an elite level. Just because the points aren't there doesn't mean he's not "earn[ing] his paycheck." He is, by far, the Kings best defenseman in all three zones right now.
Don't think the defense is the major problem. Just like last year, we aren't a threat to score... THATs the problem. Puts WWAAAY too much pressure on the Defense.
ughhh, that was depressing
Kings FYI: GM Dean Lombardi's contract extension is finalized - Los Angeles TimesQuote:
Then Lombardi moved on from the New England Patriots quarterback to one of his players, suddenly remembering a conversation with Kings captain Dustin Brown a couple of days ago.
"Talk about a guy who has grown," Lombardi said. "He said, 'You know what, Dean, the one thing I realized now, when we lost in the first round the last couple of years, it didn't bother me. Now that I know what it's like to win, if we don't win again, I'm going to be [upset].'
"That's exactly what you want, right? That's the upside. Instead of the [Cup] hangover, so to speak, you've got a guy who says, 'Man, if we don't win, I'm going to be. . . ."
