    Default Paging Dave Tippet, Please Pick Up White Courtesy Phone

    In the last 8 games, the Kings have gone 1-6-1 and they look lifeless.

    Rob "The Fraud" Blake took a chance on Mr. Boring as coach and the enthusiasm out of the gate has disappeared faster than Kevin Spacey's career.

    Don't blame this on the Carter injury.

    They brought in Pierre Turgeon who has done... well... nothing. The power play still stinks and the offense does as well.

    "The Fraud" was banking on Mike Cammalleri to play with Kopi and Brown and as much as we love Iafallo, he has ONE GOAL playing top line minutes. Cammalleri was about as welcome as a dinner with Jeremy Piven.

    Kempe looks like a human concussion out there playing center and HIS playmaking skills are about as useful as a Harvey Weinstein "green light" (that's two... wait for it)

    "The Fraud" has brought in Credenza (sp?), Auger, Laich, Armadillo and some broad Zinski. COMBINED they have 2 goals and 1 assist.

    Yeah, THIS is your playoff Kings.

    They're sinking quicker than Brett Ratner's bank account (3 for 3).

    "The Fraud" is bringing his old buddies back (see: Mitchell) so why not Tippet, whom "The Fraud" loved when he was assistant coach ages ago. Luc loves Tip, too.

    I know, the sky is falling and if the Oilers haven't fired THEIR coach yet...

    The Kings were in a playoff spot just 2 years ago Thanksgiving... 13-8-1 to be exact... and missed them.

    More of the same this year I'm afraid... and "The Fraud" can't afford to miss the playoffs. Not with Doughty a pending Free Agent following next season.

    Doughty will not stay with the Kings. I would even bet that if there’s a total rebuild that Kopi will waive his NTC/NMC, whichever he’s got.

    Overall, this is exactly what I expected from them this year. I’m not the least bit surprised.

    It's the black hole created by Lombardi's hubris. This team has enough talent to compete into March, but it ultimately will just prevent them from a higher class of draft pick.

    Yeah, okay, I'm game. Had a fantastic start simply by doing basically the opposite of what they did last season. Somehow, last season has crept its way back in.

    Purge the last of the Sutter system out. Keep Bill Ranford - the rest of the coaching staff goes.

    Blake is still learning on the job. Soon, Bailey will be, too. (Too soon?)

    In the span of 10 years, the organization has traded being known as "the lowly Kings" to become the "offensively-challenged Kings".

    Thank God for those 2 Cups that came in the middle.
