    Dunno. There really isn't a point in following the team if you don't believe that some real success is possible. And management and players have to try to achieve some real level of success than simply being better than last year.

    I know that we are all aware of how hard it is to bounce back from a season like last since it's a structural problem, but still, just blowing off the season before it even starts is close minded.

    Now, blowing the season after an Opening Day loss, well, that, I can accept.

    I would really like to see the Kings take the ice to this song. It really conveys what it's like to be a Kings fan.

    Kings are top 5 in Corey Pronman's rankings. We'll see where the good guys finally end up next week. Montreal was #6 .

    Can't wait to see what this guy does in a full season. I love the way he crashes the net.


    and yeah, it's an excuse to show off my new card.

    I think the youth injection is just what this team needs. A young and hungry element, combined with the veterans' shame of last year will put the Kings in the playoffs. Mark it dude.

    Not recognizing the need for adding young players to constantly push the (complacent) vets was among Lombardi's many post-2014 failures. Can't wait to see some of these kids claim their roster spots over the next couple of seasons. I don't expect playoffs this season, but 20/21 should be possible. Go Kids Go!

    Default Kaliyev has 4-goal game!! Also, Thomas gets 2 more assists

    Kaliyev now has 15 pts in 8 games (8Gs/7 assists).

    Akil Thomas now has 10 pts in 5 games (1G/9 assists).

    Hate to be picky, but IMO, Akil needs to shoot more.
    Er sump'n.

    I'm not complaining though.
