    We don't need more fans. Parking's bad enough already.

    I don't know, does the alleged "best player in the world" fit in with the Kings' system, and would he fit in the locker room?

    You might consider sticking to one premise. I can't tell whether your concern is (1) the Kings fan base; (2) improving the Kings as a team; or (3) playing Dr. Touchy Feely with Mr. Kopitar. As far as the latter, I really, honestly couldn't give a rat's ass what you think he "deserves." That said, it seems to me he's awfully happy having won two Stanley Cups in the past three years. I also don't think the "fan base" "throw[s] him under a bus all the time." Do folks occasionally most negative things about him on LGK.com? Sure, but so what? Some folks are never happy. And are you suggesting that he is NEVER deserving of criticism? Do you really think the comments by a few individuals on a web site are indicative of the fan base as a whole? Ever been to a Kings game at Staples Center? Ever notice how loud the applause is when Kopitar is introduced as part of the starting lineup? What do you suppose folks on the Pittsburgh equivalent of LGK.com post about Mr. Crosby every year when his team underachieves in the playoffs?

    Why? Have you thought about how trading the second-longest tenured King solely for the purpose of increasing the fan base might affect the Kings' locker room? And how about the fact that he is defensively inferior to Kopitar?

    This is where I simply disagree with you. The reasons why the fan base "exploded" with Gretzky don't apply anymore, and Crosby has nowhere near the transcendent appeal that Gretzky had. Moreover, the trade you propose would have a dramatically negative effect on the existing fan base because it would signal that everything the organization has preached for the past half decade is nothing but bulls**t.

    It does? Sorry, but that's just silly.

    You're again confusing the NHL with the NBA. Star players want to win...plain and simple. Marian Gaborik just signed a long term extension because the Kings paid him a price he found attractive (no shortage of money) and because he believes the Kings will continue to be a winning team, NOT because he thinks he can get media exposure here.

    This is so illogical I hardly know where to start. Crosby has a contract that earns him $8.7M per year (note the significance of that number, by the way) for the next decade. Do you REALLY believe he's just going to give a bunch of that money back?! REALLY? And if you seriously think that Crosby moving to the Kings (or any other west coast team) would "shift" "all east coast bias . . . to [the] west," then you know absolutely nothing about the media or the reasons for the supposed "east coast bias."

    Any time I feel low, down on myself and my life and questioning my value to humanity I come to LGK. I am so grateful that I can come here, read other peoples ideas and feel secure that I am not anywhere near as dumb as I think I am.

    Saw this thread couple weeks ago and thought nothing of it.

    This original poster is one serious troll. How this thread went for 12 pages is beyond belief.

    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.

    i agree with everything you say except the exact opposite......i'll take the cups....you take the capitals and the fans....
