    Aside from parking right next to the rink, this is the biggest concern of this article:

    Kopitar and Doughty both need to take a long look in the mirror if they think that they didn't quit on Stevens. Effort, passion, its just semantics. It's just plain old giving a **** about your team and not accepting less of yourself or those around you.

    Sometimes, when good isn't enough, someone MUST dare to be great. Those two have the most to give and both need to realize that they have been the two biggest disappointments. If they don't know this, you have to question ANY coaches ability to reach them.

    Kopitar was/is not a leader. He is a good soldier at best.

    Doughty is immature and wears his emotions on his sleeve.
    He’s shown he is no leader.

    These two cannot be counted on to be reliable day in and day out leaders.

    Maybe the Kings players should be on the ballot tomorrow? Instead of a list of judges where we simply vote to retain or remove, we could do the same with the Kings players. It would be interesting to see how many would be left on the team.

    I wonder if he stopped at In-N-Out for a double double if he went that far down PCH/Sepulveda?

    I heard at the Taco Bell that coach Willie first drove to Iceoplex North Hills, then realized that it's no longer there.

    Note: This is not a declaration of war. Merely a person looking for how your train of thought comes to completion (kripes that sounds dirty but no time to self-edit, just keep typing).



    Mondo: We are both on the same page about the rebuild but I am wondering about you questioning Kopitar and Doughty’s leadership in more of a practical setting instead of ‘the abstract academic’, if you will. For funsies (which probably makes you see red but don’t care) if you were one or both of these men, how would you proceed for the 2018-19 season, specifically?



    Just to get the ball rolling, my brand of leadership would be focusing on each man’s specific skill set and giving them resources (and encouragement) to succeed on their own. How that translates practically, no clue. And maybe that’s Anze’s and Drew’s problem as well, they know they have to do something but have hit the ceiling on how to put a plan in action or worse yet, afraid to fail at said plan. But, arguing against myself, they could just pull a Stevie Y and outplay every god damn person on the team hobbling on one leg, silently mean mugging every man that does not do the same. Although, that could breed contempt so guess it’s a fine line to walk as a leader.
