Get Yer LA Kings Cumulative Stanley Cup Stats, 2012 + 2014

Some observations: 12 players played in all 46 games (11 skaters and Jonathan Quick). 16 players played in both 2012 and 2014 (15 skaters and Quick). 14 players played/dressed in only one of the two years (12 skaters, Jonathan Bernier and Martin Jones). At even strength, only Marian Gaborik has a higher goals-per-game than Tyler…

Leaf Bernier pitches half a shut-out in relief of Reimer

Didn’t even allow a goal in the shoot-out. He’s 2-0. Leafs are 3-0. Watching NHL Network highlights tonight, I also saw goals by Matt Moulson, Brad Richardson, Teddy Purcell, Lubomir Visnovsky, interviews with Purcell and Bernier, Jason Labarbera in goal for Edmonton. I didn’t even realize he was an Oiler. Top four goalies in GAA…

The math of keeping the team together

Dean Lombardi got a lot of praise for “bringing back everyone” from the cup-winning roster. This was never really totally true, though, since Kevin Westgarth, Simon Gagne, Andrei Loktionov and Davis Drewiske were all moved either before the lock-out-shortened 2013 season started, or before the trade deadline. And Willie Mitchell has yet to play a…

Are the Kings “screwed”? (And is it news?)

I told you all many months ago that the Kings would have to get rid of two of their $3MM+ contracts in order to get under the cap. I gave a short list of (pick two of) Justin Williams, Jarret Stoll, Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene. This was of course long before we all knew…

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…

I think Simon Gagne might get dealt soon

And, no, I’m not reporting a rumor. I don’t know any rumors, and I don’t have sources anyway. So why am I saying such things? Here’s my reasoning: Gagne – Richards – Brown sucked Saturday. They were by far the worst line on the ice. This point in and of itself means nothing. Sutter was…
