    Default What the Kings need

    After watching the 2012 and 2014 Kings and this years Vegas team, it's clear. The Kings need SWAGGER.

    We need a leader, a Justin Williams, a Matt Green who brings the boys in the back together. Kopitar seems timid and Doughty loses his mind all the time. The team reflects Doughty's frustrations and Kopitars frustrations. Kopitar wears his emotions on his face, when the team is down he's down too. You need a guy like Matt Green and Justin Williams that says, hey, lets do this and you can see they actually mean it.

    Those Vegas boys don't have all the talent in the world, and stop saying they are where they are because of speed. Pittsburg has won the last 2 cups and they aren't the fastest team. Vegas has swagger. Watch how they interact from game one against the Kings to now. Look how playful and game ready they are. Kings just march out this year with serious face. When they were winning in 2012 and 2014, they came out just like those Vegas boys.

    If we need it, hire a team physiologist to be a mental cheerleader for this squad. There is no excuse to not win a cup next year. We have arguably the best goaltender in the league, best centreman and d-man. Too many individual attitudes pulling the team in different directions emotional. Doughty needs to grow up and play like he did against Vancouver in 2012 where he just let it all slid and point at the scoreboard instead of his daily tantrums he now has.

    Lets win this next year, get your heads in the game boys.

    Ahhhh, the ever elusive, SWAGGER. Born out the Britains "take whatever the f I want" Opium wars in 1839. I ask you, how do do we find this swagger without beating someone down? Do you suggest that this can be taught?? Like, look yourself in the eye and say, "I love you", 20 times???

    Good luck with teaching swagger!! (:

    Maybe every player gets this in his locker at the beginning of camp next season? This is what VGK must be using since the background image used on the the packaging is in fact Vegas.

    This has been talked about for a long time. Those who have been tuning in have realized that the team has been without true veteran leadership for 3-4 seasons now.

    However to believe that "getting Williams / Green" guys on the roster will solve the teams problems is laughable.
    It's a problem, sure, but not the biggest one.

    To say Vegas is not winning because of Speed/Skill.....well, I dunno what to say about that....that's a new one.

    Speed/skill, quick transition game is what Vegas and the top teams in the NHL currently are the best at. It's why they are winning.

    The Kings have little when it comes to speed/skill quick transition/counter attack game.
    Not to mention they have two lines, and then the rest of the lines are pretty much a mess.
    Also, not to mention the "Sutter-Light" coaching/system. That's not helping either.

    Just realistic expectations, and to plan accordingly.

    Is it bad to say that maybe the fans would be ok with a mediocre Kings team, in trade for a better toned down live Staples center experience?

    After all, it would at least be enjoyable....live.
