Denver’s #1 Kings fan

So I?ll start it, let?s go!! I?m going to blank on the last couple years and focus on what this guy has meant to this organization during his career. He was the guy that brought the physical play to this team. Laying out opponents every night, never had the pure scoring touch but knew what his role was every night. Something this team still lacks today. Leading the league in hits when nobody wanted to play this team. Can certainly argue about his quite demeanor at the ?C? at some point in his time here but he held two Cups over his head and was a force in each. To me he was a quite assassin in his prime. I really think it?s unfortunate that he didn?t announce his retirement earlier so we could recognize his contribution to the success of this organization. Gretz brought a lot of attention to California hockey but never got us to the promised land, Brownie got us there with little fanfare for himself. Looking forward to a inspiring raising of his jersey to the rafters next year.
