    Maybe the OP's handle gives a clue.

    The spelling doesn't match that of the character (Gargamelle) in the 1500s writings of Rabelais, so I'm going with The Smurfs. Just can't tell whether the 33 signifies age or IQ.

    The King's don't need more fans. None. None more fans. You don't believe me, try to buy a ticket.
    And I don't care if the media only shows up in June and pretends they were down all along. The only award that matters we won 2 of the last 3 seasons.
    But I do love the summer threads.

    To OP:

    This won't work, because Lombardi/Sutter have build a team whose power relies on players depth and a strong team first mentality (Kings tattoo on players butts) in this group.

    That said, with Gaborik re-signed the Kings could probably pull a trade for Crosby of and still stay pretty strong. (Kopitar+Voynov/Brown+Pearson+Vey/Forbort +1st for Crosby + Sutter + Scuderi or something like that). But I highly doubt you would see that big of a boom as far as growing the fan base in LA goes. Crosby today is no where near as dominant, superior player as Gretzky was in his era. Also there would be the danger of losing the team chemistry and maybe for the playoffs more important team identity...


    Opening a thread like this after the team just won the Stanley Cup is.....interesting, to say the least.

    I don't care about baseball. You could bring the biggest name in baseball to the Dodgers and I still wouldn't care about baseball.

    This is such a weird and random thread.

    You are thinking small here. Guess what just hit the market?



    That's right, you can find that shirt a Marshalls clearance rank near you.

    So you guys don't want the best player in the world in your team? I think Kopitar deserves better. He deserves a fan base that would support him and not throw him under a bus all the time.
    And i think La fans must get the best there is. Crosby. Now is the best chance to get him, because you have a player that any team would want. 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.

    I even think Crosby would take a lower sallary if he would be able to play for a SC winning team AND all east coast bias would shift to west. I still think it is a win - win and should be done now, before Kopi's extension and Crosby is going to be older too.

    Okay, fine. Let us know when it happens. BTW, there's like a whole bunch of Russian people with nhl money living in LA. I'm thinking expand the trade to include Malkin. Maybe keep Voynov because he's a Big Russian Name. VYACHESLAV. So, Kopitar, Toffoli, Doughty, Quick (Jones deserves better) for Malkin and Crosby and Jarome Bettis. Cuz even though he's not really a hockey player, he's black, and in LA more black people need to be hockey fans because Nhl awards and buses and stuff.

    Please?

    Wait, we get to throw Crosby under a bus? I hadn't thought of it in those terms...
