Westgarth for Stewart, and I say Lombardi’s not done yet

Kevin Westgarth, loved and appreciated by pretty much everyone, lost his roster spot at some point in the spring of 2012, so it’s not a surprise that Dean Lombardi moved him when he got the chance. I have to say though, I am once again surprised by the excellent return (former 25th overall pick RW…

2013 Kings’ opening night line-up?

The 2013 season starts in 10-14 days. Camp starts in less than a week, I suppose. Anze Kopitar and Willie Mitchell sound like they’re out with knee injuries for at least a few weeks. Tyler Toffoli has been tearing up the AHL. Jonathan Quick either has just been cleared to play (surgery, remember?) or is…

Who will still be on the Kings in 2013-14?

2013-14, that’s this fall, by the way. The NHL and NHLPA have apparently agreed to allow 2 buy-outs per club for 2013-14. That’s two buy-outs that will not count against the cap. The point is to make it easier for teams to get below the presumed $60 million cap ceiling. I don’t know what other…

I Don’t Care How You’re Doing in Europe

I derive great satisfaction from following prospects, especially Kings’ prospects, playing in other leagues. But it turns out I don’t care at all how established NHL players are doing while playing in other leagues. Aside from an over-riding concern that everyone stays healthy for that distant day when the NHL returns, I don’t have an…

The Cup, Names, Petitions, since the lock-out [CHART FUN]

[I wrote a more exhaustive post on this topic in 2013, The History of Cup-Winning Teams and Their Petitions, which covers the criteria for inclusion over the years, and how teams have chosen to petition -- or not -- the league on behalf of players who don't qualify.] Yesterday, we learned that the Kings did…

Do the Right Thing, Dean! (part two)

So, today the HHOF released the first picture of the Kings’ names engraved on the Stanley Cup. Imagine my ecstasy when I saw that the picture did indeed include the name of Andrei Loktionov! There it was, tacked onto the end of the last row, the only player’s name to be out of alphabetical order,…

Loktionov omission is unconscionable

Andrei Loktionov played 39 regular season games for the Kings, and 2 more in the playoffs. The cut-off to qualify to get your name on the cup is 41 regular season games, or one game in the Finals. Loktionov didn’t dress in the Finals, so I was prepared for the news that his name wouldn’t…
