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…

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,…

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,…

This was going to be a longer conversation, but we got interrupted by yesterday’s sudden flurry of activity, so I decided just to post what we have. The last time I participated in a proper roundtable of Kings’ bloggers, it was back in 2010 on Jewels from the Crown. The participants were RudyKelly (then of Battle of…

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…

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 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…
