    Default Kings Year End Awards

    Didn't see this posted yet. Roy getting a lot of love. Kopi detractors (I didn't say haters this time) might have a problem with him being voted Most Insipiration by his teammates. Maybe lends some credence to the thought they have the right guy as captain?

    So Roy won Outstanding Defenseman over Doughty and Iafallo won Player of the Year over Kopitar? Kinda just makes me just scratch my head...

    Yeah 17 goals and 26 assists isn't the best criteria for MOP. Iafallo has improved immensely, but play left wing with Kopitar should be better numbers IMHO. Shows the low expectations the fans had for this team. Whatever the criteria, I would have taken MacDermid, Gordie Howe Hat Trick, two fights with Lucic and Deslauriers where I felt he was 3-0-1. Guy is entertaining!

    I think the fanbase has a soft spot for him and liked the improvement vs previous year. At the end of the day, we all kinda know Kopi was player of the year and will likely continue to be until the next young stud steps up.

    Totally agree, he is entertaining to watch and improved quite a bit in his own end. Really think he will make a sizable difference once the Kings are back in the playoffs. I wasn't a fan of bringing in McLellan but it really does seem like the younger players are developing well under him.
