I don't mind reading criticism of the Kings as long as the points are well made and I can see some validity to the criticism. I don't need people to write things that are praising the Kings when my eyes can see something different going on. And you've got to admit that both throughout their history and specifically this year before February, the Kings were deserving a lot of criticism. Everyone around here likes ripping on Hayward and Ahlers for not being objective on Ducks broadcasts. Well if you want objectiveness, that means the Kings have to be called out sometimes, whether it's by Bob and Jim, Helene, other announcers, writers around the country.She covered the NHL and Olympic sports for more than a decade and in 2005 was voted the winner of the Elmer Ferguson Award, given annually by the Hockey Hall of Fame "in recognition of distinguished members of the newspaper profession whose words have brought honor to journalism and to hockey." She was the first female journalist to be honored with a plaque in the Hall of Fame of a major professional sport.
