    Default You Know Folks, We're Only 8 Points Out of 6th Place

    No I'm not suggesting we have a shot. Look at our February schedule. It is brutal.

    But it's pretty amazing how bad the Western Conference is this year. There are 5 good teams and that's it.

    Part of the reason we are still technically in the hunt is our improved play. A lot of it is due to Colorado's and Anaheim's implosions and teams like Dallas and Minnesota not really being playoff caliber teams.

    This shouldn't be viewed as bad news by the Sell, Sell, Sell crowd. We want our players playing well and the team looking good as we head to the trade deadline.

    By the way, Phaneuf is a plus player since his return from injury.

    As a charter member of the "Sell, sell, sell" crowd, I can tell you that my fear is that being seemingly within reach at the deadline will be used as justification for "Buy, buy, buy!!" Which is why every point the Kings get makes me nervous.

    Every game i root for Quick to pitch a shutout, Carter and Kovi to pot a hatty, and for the Kings to somehow lose. If only there were unearned runs in hockey.

    Blake basically sat out the trade deadline last year with a better team. I don't think he'll be more likely to buy this year regardless of the circumstances. Maybe if we were to go on a run he would decide to keep Muzzin, but I think we should do that anyway unless someone offers us something fairly close to a Lucic-type deal for him (which very well might happen). Hagelin and Thompson are gone. Carter is gone if there are any takers. Martinez is probably gone. Phaneuf at 50% retained for a conditional 7th in 2049? Probably not. Quick probably in the off season.

    And I'll be PISSED if he does the same this season. Not being in full sale mode at this point is absurd.

    Why on Earth would you want to keep Muzzin? So after next season the Kings can either sign him, now 31, to a long contract for a hell of a lot more money than he gets now or let him walk away for nothing as a UFA? Or trade him at the deadline next season for a much smaller return than what they can get now?
