    Pull Campbell at the end for man advantage and throw Phaenough out there...did that really happen???

    Campbell is the only reason this wasn't 6-1.

    Bad analogy! Carol Channing is actually still alive. The Kings seem to be dead.

    Nope. One playoff game won in four years with the same message and same style of play that is no longer successful. The whole model needs to be replaced.

    I know itís early and it could be a slump for carter but I think his days as a 2 line center are behind him after the injury plus his age . Putting Kempe as the second line center while carter rides shotgun could be the best option. There will be some growing pains but the poor kid is not meant for the 3 line with Lewis . I wonít even comment on the pp or Stevens . How hard is it to run a damn umbrella pp , all the good teams run that pp system . I was so jealous of watching the NJ Devils play exciting brand of hockey with all their youngsters. They left the old boring identity of theirs and are actually playing their kids . I feel like everyone here is complacent , the same forward groups and defenseman for the most part. I was dying for the hockey season to start but after watching the kings play the same way over and over again itís so depressing .

Most of those folks don't post much or at all anymore, and if they are honest with themselves, they will have had plenty of evidence to show that they were wrong - if not two seasons ago, surely by now.

    The Kings aren't a bad team. They are an average one. And the moves they have made have guaranteed that average status. They limited their own upward movement ability by contracting themselves into a corner. They are the oldest team in the league with zero playoff success for four years despite spending to the cap, having a Norris defenseman, a top five center, and a terrific goalie.

    They are mired in this muck. Each of the last three seasons has been a repeat of itself with only Vilardi's bad back to dream on.

    It's like watching The Love Boat reruns on MeTV, some good night's you get a Charro, but damn, most nights are just a bunch of Carol Channings.

    You had me until the The Love Boat reruns. I think it was a bit before my time.
