    Uh.......
    I've never thought while waiting in a crowded line at Staples "I wish there were more of them who've been fans since June of 2012."

And i think Kopi + Voynov + maybe another prospect would bring Crosby here. No more problems with Kopi's play after playoffs and Kings fan base would explode. More money means more media, means better chances for star players that will try to find a way to get here.
    No, I don't want Crosby and I don't think he is the better player.

    Somehow, you don't seem to understand that Crosby has a contract through 2024. That means he couldn't take a lower salary for any reason, not that he would anyway.

    The east coast bias will never change. Apparently staying up past 10:30pm is something sports media don't do back there so they only see the western conference teams when they play there, though I'm sure they miss some number of those games.

    Without reading further than page 1 of this moronic thread, all I can say is who effing cares about expanding our fanbase?

    More fans means higher tickets prices, like the Lakers, and more morons to start threads like this.

    **** that.

    OP, you failed sir.

    PS. Crosby sucks. Without Malkin dude wouldn't even have a cup and if Kopi had Malkin on his line and didn't play defense he'd easily put up Crosby numbers. Cindy would get destroyed in the Western Conference. End of story.

    The only big name I want here is STAMKOS!

    We can build a trade package starting with Mitchrock to the Islanders.

    You really want to get more people into the Kings ? Win ! and win some more.

    The one thing that I always thought the Kings could do a better job of was marketing to my peeps and other peeps in LA. How about some signs in Spanish ? Korean signs in K-Town and Japanese, Chinese, Russian etc around the city much like the Dodgers did. It was pretty cool. Sure it was pandering but it was done in a cool way. This city has tons of people from many different parts of the globe.

    Really? R u for real? As a Kings fan since day 1, after going through these last 2 championship teams, why would you change anything? Obviously bringing Gretzky to LA was huge for not only LA, California and the Western United States, and I think it was the best thing that happened to the LA Kings at that point of their history. However watching the Kings win their first Stanley Cup in 2012 in historic fashion, followed up with how they were so resilient this year, setting more NHL Playoff records, I say DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING!!
    I was fortunate enough to attend the NHL Awards show in person last night, and all of the award winners would gladly trade their trophies for the Stanley Cup, the trophy our LOS ANGELES KINGS HAVE WON 2 OUT THE LAST 3 YEARS!

    Gretzky really helped with hockey being popular in LA and we need more of that. Cups alone don't really help a lot.

    How to expand fan base in LA? Trade for more big Canadian, American or Russian names. Sell guys that don't bring merchandise sale value. Right now, we have a perfect oportunity to do that. We have great value in Kopitar. He is great but not really a talker and a media person. Kopitar could bring us a huge name, not just a great player but also a great media guy. I would even go for Crosby with Kopitar and Voynov. I think Penguins would do this deal and it would give them great defense power, and Kings would get Crosby himself. With him we would still be fighting for the cup, but west and La would gain hugely in terms of hockey fan base. And money.
    Ummm...well...you see...but..

    Oh my..
