Spring 3-on-3 league

If you are reading this, it’s because I published a post with this title by accident, and have withdrawn it. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Mostly I’m embarrassed. Meanwhile, why not check out the revamped and/or updated Points Blown and Reserve List pages? The Philly West page has some pretty logos now, and the Lombardi Trade…

Monday morning bullets: playoffs, points-blown, rookie stats

Points-Blown page is updated, and shows: Columbus is much worse off than the official standings (and pundits) would have you believe. St. Louis is better off than the official standings say. This has mostly to do with the fact that Columbus has only 12 games left, and St. Louis has 15. Everyone else who is…

Post-game/pre-game whatever bullets

  • Jeff Carter, with his 17th goal in 23 games, is on a 60 goal pace for a normal 82 game season.
  • The Kings’ victory over the Flames doesn’t count in the season series tie-breaker.
  • Tomorrow’s game counts. The Kings are up 2 points on the Flames in the season series, and this is the last game between the two teams this regular season.
  • The Kings are still 3rd in points-blown, and 5th in the official standings.
  • The Flames have dropped to the bottom of the official standings, but in points-blown they’re 12th, and Columbus, despite their recent success, is still 15th.
  • No-one has played as few games as the Kings and Flames, with 23.

Carter-mania! Post-game bullets

Last night, Jeff Carter scored maybe the most sheepish hat-trick I’ve ever seen. With 14 goals in 20 games, Carter is on pace for 57 goals in an 82 game season. In celebration of the four goals by ex-Flyers, here’s a link to the freshly-updated Philly West page, with new graphics. The Kings jump to…

You’re all a bunch of Jeremy Roenicks

Well, not all. Just the ones who didn’t play during the lock-out. Played during lock-out: Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Trevor Lewis, Kyle Clifford, Jordan Nolan, Dwight King, Alec Martinez, Slava Voynov, Jake Muzzin, Jonathan Bernier. Didn’t play: Dustin Penner, Justin Williams, Jeff Carter, Simon Gagne, Mike Richards, Jarret Stoll, Colin Fraser, Drew Doughty, Rob Scuderi,…

Who ARE these guys? What do they WANT? [Preview #2 – COL]

Who are they? Colorado Avalanche What do they want? Make the playoffs. What is their ****ing problem? No injuries, but Ryan O’Reilly is still in the KHL. What, are we supposed to be scared? Since the Kings haven’t won yet, and are without Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell…yeah, a little. I thought we were friends! ex-Avs: Brad…

Kings 2013 Season Preview: x = 12 – y – 41*(z-5)/48

x = 12 – y – (z-5)/2 That was my prediction for the Kings in 2011-12. Where x = conference seed, y = number of 20 goal scorers, z = number of shoot-out wins. Results rounded to the nearest counting number. How did my little predictive formula do? Let’s see. 20 goal scorers: 4 (Kopitar, Brown, Williams,…

Why did the Kings lose Thomas Hickey? I’ll tell you why

I was sad to see Thomas Hickey go this morning. In an alternate universe, it’s Hickey and not Alec Martinez or Slava Voynov playing in LA with his name on the Stanley Cup. Does that sound crazy? Consider that Hickey’s injuries early on are what kept him from getting his “cup of coffee” early on,…

The answer to the Hickey/Muzzin (and King) waiver mystery

This morning, the Mayor reported (or, I guess, tweeted) that several Kings prospects playing in the AHL were being put through waivers. Those players were Thomas Hickey, Marc-Andre Cliche, Andrew Campbell and Rich Clune. Previously, Jake Muzzin was recalled from Manchester and is currently in camp with the Kings. Those five names are the ones…
