Old friend returning to LGK
Think the last time I was on LGK was in 2001.
So, what brings me back?
The "rumor" that the Kings are to be Raiders on Ice again next year.
The Kings are PURPLE and GOLD, period, end o' discussion.
The current home/roads are okay: love the updated crown and the purple. The black can go but it is clearly a compromise edition imho.
To go fulltime Raiders, trendy, depth depraved, unoriginal, fall down drunk back to a tiny era of Kings hockey is ridiculous.
You didn't see the Lakers gut purple and gold when they signed Shaq. They didn't re-invent themselves by going trendy Raiders on the hardwood. Nope, they stayed true to form.
Gretzky is gone, super saturated black&silver is over done and looks horrible against white ice.
The vintage 67-68's are beautiful on TV and in-person, look great against the white ice, are original in the NHL and who the Kings are.
Bad enough there's still no Cup, but to go soft and fall back on Raider colors AGAIN is a disgrace.
