    So... cut off the proverbial Kopitar head, and the team will grow more fans?

    I can't believe I participated in the bump of this thread.

    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.

    Answer: Kings fans are passionate fans. Even though everyone knows the OP was insane, and even though everyone knows everyone else knows the OP was insane, Kings fans can't help but say . . . the OP was insane.

    Now, Kopitar for Crosby and Malkin and two first-round draft picks . . .
