    Default Willie Mitchell Appreciation Thread

    Would rather see Willie stay over Regehr but it's not gonna happen. Too bad - the Kings will miss him and might struggle with mobility with Regehr and Greene in the lineup.

    I think it was Gescom that said to not get married to players... I may be wrong, but the statement still holds true. Every player has a beginning and an end to their career. I'm glad that Willie got his name on the Cup twice and was a great mentor to the D-corps. Without him signing in LA in the first place I highly doubt that the Kings would have won one Cup, let alone two.

    Best of luck to you #33 . You'll be missed.

He was very stoked to see his old Warrior Dolomite and asked us where we got it, and told my wife that he was going to keep it and that was tough luck, all in a joking manner of course. You can see him checking the stick out in the bottom pic, just such a great guy.

    The guy is pure class and we will miss him in LA.

    Dude is 100% class.
    His first year with the Kings, at Frozen Fury, he had just wrapped up his poker tourny play and I had won one of those auctions. Charity auctions, I forget for what. Dude notices, comes over and thanks me for supporting Kings Care. Takes a few pics with the wife and I, and was the first signature I got on my authentic that has about 30 signatures and is hanging up in my office. Willie is just a down to earth, super cool dude.

    :(
    He often does the little things that don't appear on the stat sheet. But as hard as it is for me to see him go, I understand it is a business and why he can't be kept. Good luck Willie and thanks for all your valuable contributions. You will be missed!

    Much love to Willie! Gave 100% effort every game. Good luck wherever you go, #33 !
    After Game 7 OT dagger against the Hawks:
    -(habs fan): Wow. I just heard everyone in Chicago kill themselves at the same time.

    Class Act. Will be missed. But totally understand the reasoning and its time to move on.

    I hope he goes to the east or something.

    I liked Mitchell and wish him luck but I don't think losing him will be that hard on the team.

    Look at the stats of these two players, Mitchell and Martinez:
    Player Team Pos GP G A P +/- PIM PPG PPP SHG SHP GW OT S S% TOI/G Sft/G FO%
    6 Willie Mitchell LAK D 76 1 11 12 +14 58 0 2 0 0 0 0 73 1.4 20:19 27.2 0.0
    4 Alec Martinez LAK D 61 11 11 22 +17 14 3 8 0 0 2 0 79 13.9 15:40 21.8 0.0

    Mitchell has more games, more ice time but far less goals, a lower +/-, and far more Penalty minutes.

    Whoever signs him will get one hell of a player, you will be missed here in LA. This is when I hate the business of the game.
