    Default Nick Nickson's admissions on Kings Talk Thursday

    Not sure if this little tid-bid ever was public (not to me anyways) - but a caller asked Nick about if he pursued the TV gig after Bob retired or did he just pass to stay on radio.

    Nick said he "expressed interest" in the job, but the franchise chose "to go a different direction" with Alex.

    Another question was in all the years he's been doing games - has he ever "just attended" a hockey game "as a regular fan" - Nick said maybe 20 total in all his years & it's a completely different experience with no headsets with the balance of crowd noise, Daryl or the producer giving information "for 3 hours"

    Lastly - he said that Alex "was doing a great job" ....

    I'm not a Faust basher, but Nick should have been given the job if he was interested.

    I feel so bad for Nick, Daryl, and the radio staff... for not being on the actual radio either. I refuse to listen to it on the app or whatever. I miss Kings Talk. lol

    LGK is the only place for real die-hard fans. If you're not here, you're not a die-hard. That's how I see it!

    What a kick in the nuts to a Kings legend, Nick Nickson from the organization. Then again, maybe it was a blessing. Because the "different direction" the franchise has been going really sucks.

    I assume they wanted someone younger who would likely stick around for a while. Nick's not much younger than Bob.

    The game Nick provided the play by play during the tv broadcast this year really brought back great memories. He was stellar.
