Los Angeles Kings 2011-12 Season Preview

It’s that time. Game #1 is three days away (at 10am on a Friday, but I’ll take it). Now that Drew Doughty has signed, the roster is more or less set. The fanbase — if the internet contingent is any indicator — is somewhere between gleeful and giddy. Fans of other teams are reverse-trolling us…

Iain MacIntyre pronounces Kings dead

I don’t know Iain MacIntyre, never heard of him, though for all I know I’ve read him and just never looked at the by-line until I had to, to see who wrote this remarkable column on the Kings/Canucks series.

From The Puck Stops Here : Kings Lead The West

Kings are getting more and more non-Kings site blogosphere attention: I don’t think anyone would have predicted that the Los Angeles Kings would be first in the West Conference in mid-December, but they are.  The Kings have a 22-14 record (with three overtime loss points) to give them 47 points.  Skeptics are quick to note…
