SchoolYourPool.com | Jonathan Bernier, for real this time

Finally, the NHL is almost ready to call upon Jonathan Bernier.  For real this time and he’s ready. The Kings drafted the 6-0, 185 lb goaltender 11th overall in 2006 and expected that he would be the man between the pipes for the Kings for many years to come.  While fellow highly regarded prospects Carey…

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…

Some Kings-related blogging from The Fifth Feather

Well, here we are, just past the quarter pole of the regular season. The Blackhawks are returning home after a “take your pants off and run around the block while primal screaming” kind of road trip. They started off by leaving a mushroom stamp on the collective forehead of Alberta; Antti Niemi stole two points…

Kings 2, Blackhawks 1 (SOL) « Fifth Feather

The 2009 circus trip is finally over, and the verdict is in: success. With a point in Los Angeles on Saturday night, the Hawks grabbed their 17th point in their last ten games, including a 4-1-1 road trip on the west coast of North America. Not bad. And, if nothing else, it was an entertaining…

Pierre LaBrun has an interesting Bernier tidbit

harry2299: The Kings have the best team they have had in ages, and as a Kings fan, I couldn’t be happier with the progress they’ve made this season. The only gripe I have is why is Jonathan Bernier still in the AHL. I understand wanting to give him more playing time, but Murray’s expecting Quick…

Quick vs. LaBarbera [UPDATE post-Thrashing]

[UPDATE: after last night's 7-0 fun fest, I thought I would revisit Q's numbers to see where he stands vis-a-vis LaBarbera. The post has been altered accordingly:] Halfway through Quick’s next game, he will have played exactly the same number of minutes LaBarbera played for the Kings last season. Q has now played about a…

Cut/Paste in its entirety: RudyKelly on today’s game sort of

    WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Man am I pumped for this game.  I’m a Kings man tried and true but I sure do love those Atlanta Thrashers.  There’s Ilya, of course, who is without a doubt my favorite non-Kings related hockey player in the league.  I don’t watch Ilya Kovalchuk enough to know if he’s good…

Quick Transition

Early in the season, someone observed that Quick was letting in some weird (i.e. soft) goals in the wins, but standing on his head in the losses. Last couple of games, it’s happening in the losses. Maybe he’s tired. Maybe it would be a good idea to waive/trade Ersberg and bring up Bernier and let…
