He has sucked, but so have the rest of the Kings. I'll give him two more games to make judgement. Vinny made a bigger impact his first few games with LA. I thought Iggy was hungry to get one final chance at the cup and that would raise the Kings spirit and motivation. But everyone on the ice looks like zombies. 3rd and 4th lines are outplaying the top two lines lately. Also, hate to say it, but our system is getting old. Games against the Leafs showed me new school v old school. Speed is the name of the game and LA looks lost against teams with speed. Time to get younger and faster!
We won't be able to compete "younger and faster" for many many years. Other teams have a multi-year head start there, and we've been drafting a certain way for a while.
The system used today dominates with the right personnel and leadership. Until the league changes its rules to penalize a defense first system like ours, I don't see any other choice but to build within the current structure. We'll leave the building blocks and leadership to another thread.
