I guess Dean Lombardi was right about Justin Williams

The Justin Williams trade is, sort of, the reason I started blogging. In the wake of the Williams/O’Sullivan deadline deal — and the ensuing fire-storm in the Inside the Kings comments section, I really wanted a poll on whether commenter celebre Anthony [who?] was right about the Williams trade (hint: he wasn’t). The result was the blog Kings Kool…

Is signing Jarret Stoll a “must-do”?

If you’re comparing Stoll to Loktionov, don’t forget that Loktionov is going to get older and better, while Stoll is going to get older and worse. I don’t think Loktionov is going to have too much trouble scoring 20+ goals a year, once he starts getting a regular shift. Do you want to see him do that on another team?

Kings Hive Mind

Kings Hive Mind brings together the feeds of the best of the LA Kings blogs, under one roof. I made it for myself, actually. But it’s nice to share.

From Helene Elliott: Kings and Ilya Kovalchuk?

The Kings need a pure scorer who could make a difference in the one-goal games they’ve recently lost and solidify their playoff ambitions. Atlanta left wing Ilya Kovalchuk, a two-time 50-goal scorer who can become a free agent July 1, has a $6.4-million salary cap hit that would be prorated according to the number of…
