    Default Kings Headed to China for Exhibition Games

    Give me a f***ing break.

    I don't care if it is good for the league, it seriously disrupts training camps. I have nothing but contempt for whoever okayed this on the King's side, probably Robataille, Lombardi, and/or Anschutz. F***.

    This makes lots of business sense for both the NHL and the Kings to do this. It helps spread some goodwill and expose the the Kings to new fans. For AEG it's a win-win. For many new fans in China this will be their first exposure to the NHL game. It's an exhibition for a couple games, and it's not going to totally disrupt the camp. Plus it gives the youngsters some more training camp time with the big club to prove themselves.

    Does AEG own arenas in China?

    Chalk this up as another dumb move for this organization.

    Send the quacks and sharts to China.

    Will there be a "gauntlet" for the China game(s), and where do we meet up?

    It doesn't hurt them if they want to expose their brand IE: The Kings. Seeing how AEG works it doesn't hurt to see how lucrative the market will look. They already have a footprint, so it only makes sense for them to expand even more. Or AEG could be looking to sell the Kings to foreign investors or offer a stake in ownership. Who knows what's really going on, but it's purely a business move on AEG's part.
