Deep Thoughts – Battle of California

The Ducks are a pretty hilarious team right now because they’re still a team of giant dicks but now they suck so it comes off as just kind of sad and pathetic.  It’s like they’re the high school bully that grew up to be a gas station attendant and the Kings are the lonely, pathetic…

Week in Review – Battle of California

I go to the Ducks-Blackhawks game [...]. It was terrible: not only did the Ducks win, not only did Corey Perry extend his scoring streak, not only did the Blackhawks not score, but Kyle Calder (boo!) played well. Kyle Calder. [...] Also, it was funny that I went to the game with a bunch of…

The Hockey’s Future site no longer appears to have Brandon Segal info, but here’s a cut/paste of the HF write-up that found its way to the HF Boards

Brandon Segal has soft hands in close quarters and is a willing combatant along the boards and in front of the net. He shows the ability to be at the right place at the right time and score goals when given the ice time and opportunity. His on-ice awarenes both offensively and defensively are generally…

Cut/Paste in its entirety: RudyKelly on today’s game sort of

    WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Man am I pumped for this game.  I’m a Kings man tried and true but I sure do love those Atlanta Thrashers.  There’s Ilya, of course, who is without a doubt my favorite non-Kings related hockey player in the league.  I don’t watch Ilya Kovalchuk enough to know if he’s good…

Sharks Don’t Hate Kings Enough

Puck Daddy: You would definitely hate the Ducks more than you’d hate the Kings, right? Pavelski: Yeah, definitely. via Puck Daddy chats with San Jose’s Joe Pavelski about playoff flops, Olympic gold and why the critics are wrong about Dany Heatley – Puck Daddy – NHL – Yahoo! Sports. But really isn’t there hate enough…

The Hockey News: Western Conference predictions

10. Los Angeles. I hate for you to think I’m underestimating the Kings, because I’m not. The job Terry Murray did behind L.A.’s bench last year was phenomenal, their blueline has the potential to be one of the league’s best and individual talents such as Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty are only getting…

Battle of California Name-Check Madness

Do you enjoy wearing sweatpants, eating nacho cheese and not talking to women?  Congratulations, you may already be a blogger! SBNation is looking for dedicated people to start up new blogs for the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks because they secretly hate Earl and me but don’t have the heart to shut us down. …

From Mirtle: The Flyers goaltending: Not as bad as you think (and other netminding myths) [ME: Ah, but the Kings' goaltending is worse than you think!]

There’s something about goaltending that, when it’s bad, it can hang on a franchise like an odour, weighing on fans and netminders alike. Pre-Luongo, for example, Vancouver was always pegged as a goalie graveyard (although some would argue a few of his predecessors were stiff upon arrival). In Ottawa, they seemingly haven’t had a lot…
