    Default Robyn Regehr Props

    After the first 10 games of the season or so, I really thought that this guy was a major liability. I was willing to look past shortcomings in Voynov (young and talented), Mitchell and Greene (rust) and Muzzin (young project), so Regehr was a convenient scapegoat for the whole defense.

    He's still slow. He still isn't my favorite player. But the dude's been rock solid for the last 5-10 games. Since being split from Doughty actually, he's been really effective.

    Glad the guys in the booth are giving him props lately, he deserves them.

    Right there with ya, USC. I hated his lack of foot-speed, but he seems to have found his role with this team, and is playing it quite effectively.

    So much better on this road trip. Teams in the East must be skating in molasses.

    the reason he's so slow are the ears. cause major wind resistance/drag

    i'd suggest we chop off those ears and watch him become a speedster

    So you found shortcomings with the whole defense except for Doughty?
    I think our defense has been our saving grace and fortunately Scrivens is taking advantage of it.

    Completely agree. Have to admit, I was wrong too. It's well-known Regehr isn't the fleetest of players, but lately he's compensating by making consistently good reads on defense, blocking shots and maintaining inside position. In fact, I think all of the Kings defensemen have improved by leaps and bounds in the last half-dozen to dozen games or so. Seems to me, there's been an adjustment back to attacking and defending as a five-man unit, like during the Cup run.

    He's a solid vet who knows how to compensate for his lack of foot speed by being in position.

    Thing is, he's not a top pairing defenseman. He's a solid second pairing guy. I personally, think he can give you a solid 20 minutes on ice, but anything over that will take a toll on him, especially with his playing style.

    Also, take in mind the fact that he was traded on the deadline, it's not easy to come in, learn a new system, know the moves the guy next to you, in this case Doughty, is going to make, and all the stuff that takes time to get used to. Carter was in a different situation, he knows Richards better than any of the girls he has slept with. Regehr did spend 4 years under Sutter (as a coach), but that was from '02 to '06, over 7 years ago.

    I hope Regehr continues to improve and makes that contract extension worth it.

    Yup, he's also a nice physical presence and he uproots guys in front of the net. His low snake killer shot that he shoots at kings' sticks also ain't too bad for a defensive-defensemen - some of those need to find the back of the net. Guy is solid, he just needs to not be on the ice all the time and with a guy like DD that gets caught looking for goals (and deep) often.
