HockeyBuzz.com – Matthew Barry – Dustin Brown Sounds Off

Following practice yesterday, I asked Brown simply, is there a problem? “I think its an individual thing.” Brown began. “We’re professionals. We’re paid to come prepared to play. I think it’s something that every individual on this team, they need to come ready. Partly it’s coming together as a team but if you’re not ready…

Nerdy Stats Update

Stats via Behind the Net (link in the right margin under stats). Seven Kings have a PTS/60 (points per 60 minutes of icetime) above 2.0. They are: Kopitar (2.66), Smyth (2.59), Stoll (2.46), Parse (2.35), Williams (2.35), Simmonds (2.24), Jones (2.10). GFON/60 (goals-for, while player is on the ice, per 60 minutes) leaders: Schenn (5.16),…

Why do people keep saying that without Smyth and Scuderi the Kings are the same team as last year? (And why did I buy it, until I looked?)

Okay, so off the top of your head, about how many Kings are absent since this time last year? My guess is 5. The real answer: Calder Armstrong Zeiler Moulson Boyle O’Sullivan Moller Quincey Preissing Gauthier LaBarbera And those eleven guys were replaced by these nine: Williams Smyth Purcell Parse Segal Scuderi Drewiske Jones Quick…

The 2009 circus trip is finally over, and the verdict is in: success. With a point in Los Angeles on Saturday night, the Hawks grabbed their 17th point in their last ten games, including a 4-1-1 road trip on the west coast of North America. Not bad. And, if nothing else, it was an entertaining…

The Battle of Alberta: Trade Phaneuf

The Battle of Alberta: Trade Phaneuf. The link is to The Battle of Alberta blog. The short version: Calgary needs an elite forward and has Phaneuf to spare now that they have “Jay-Bo.” So… Frolov for Phaneuf? Or is the reasonable version of that Frolov and Johnson for Phaneuf? Or Frolov and Hickey. Or Frolov…

Self-Serving Moulson Premonition

Matt Moulson is now being cited as one of the 10 biggest stories of the year in the NHL. Who could have predicted that? September 24, 2008 6:01 PM Quisp said: Purcell’s dominating season in the AHL puts him a notch above Moulson for now, but it’s clearly possible for either one of them to…

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…
