    Yes, Mr.Personality himself.

    For real though. I've been a fan since 93, another friend who I used to split season tickets with has been on board since 2000. We both as apathetic AF about the team right now. In my social circle the only guy still rabid and still willing to give anyone an earful of Kings is our buddy who finally jumped on in 2012.
    What a world.

    Trotz to LA would be way better than J. Stevens as a head coach.

    But that just a dream.

    Trotz with the talent the Kings have would do worse. The Kings have no offense, they survived and did as good as they did because of their defensive play. The Knights beat us but they didn't score much on the Kings. They scored on the Capitols but the Capitols score more than the knights did. Trotz defensive scheme would be exposed badly with the talent the Kings have. His offensive is better than Stevens.

    Trotz coaches a "motion" style with everybody moving at a fast pace.

    His teams have shown that tendency since he 1st came into the league with Nashville.

    But with the Kings all skating around in constant motion, it will be harder to read the jersey numbers
    and keep aware of who's who on the ice.

    If the Kings stand around more, and don't move too much or too fast, I'll be much better able to
    see the numbers on the jerseys and keep track of who's on the ice.

    So no, I say don't hire Trotz as coach.

    These days in the NHL, a slower pace is better.

    Trotz would destroy that, and speed things up and ruin everything.

    Coach Uncle Fester to L.A.? Nahhh...

    He'll either go to the Islanders, but only if they re-sign Tavares. If not, he'll take a season off and make himself available to Seattle after they're awarded their team. My bet is that Tippett will be pressured to only take the GM job and not try to be a GM-Coach, and then he'll hire Trotz.

    So, you guys jumped on the bandwagon in Gretzky era.

    You managed to endure the Kings ****ting the bed monumentally in 94 and the subsequent fire sale with the bankruptcy and all that.

    You managed to endure the black-holeness up until Deano came aboard and the subsequent tanking with some hope that things will turn around.

    And then a few years into the mediocrity post 2 Cup wins and the management still trying to figure out what to do with this team, you're "completely apathetic"?

    Huh. Well, all I have to say is that you've either become too spoiled or you took hockey WAY too seriously before and took it to your heart to support this team no matter what that you're now simply burnt out.

    Either way, this does seem surprising to me, too. This can't be nearly as bad as the 95-06 era. I didn't follow that era of Kings hockey, but reading about it makes me want to vomit. Without Gretzky this team would probably move out of LA because no one would care anymore.

    Stevens is retapped bottled water from Tijuana
