Get Yer LA Kings Cumulative Stanley Cup Stats, 2012 + 2014

Some observations: 12 players played in all 46 games (11 skaters and Jonathan Quick). 16 players played in both 2012 and 2014 (15 skaters and Quick). 14 players played/dressed in only one of the two years (12 skaters, Jonathan Bernier and Martin Jones).

My favorite 25 Kings under 25

I was asked to contribute my own list to the Top 25 Under 25 feature now running over at Jewels from the Crown. Every time they post a new name (25, 24, 23…), I have to go check my own list to see what I said about so-and-so. To make that task easier on me…

The math of keeping the team together

Dean Lombardi got a lot of praise for “bringing back everyone” from the cup-winning roster.

And Willie Mitchell has yet to play a…

Flyer Quota Intact – Lombardi acquires Daniel Carcillo

Yesterday, Ron Hextall left for the Kings’ East Coast Affiliate. Today, Dean Lombardi traded a conditional 5th round pick for ex-Flyer Daniel Carcillo, maintaining the Philly West population at seven (Carcillo, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Justin Williams, Colin Fraser, John Stevens, and Lombardi).

Carter-mania! Post-game bullets

Last night, Jeff Carter scored maybe the most sheepish hat-trick I’ve ever seen. With 14 goals in 20 games, Carter is on pace for 57 goals in an 82 game season. In celebration of the four goals by ex-Flyers, here’s a link to the freshly-updated Philly West page, with new graphics. The Kings jump to…

You’re all a bunch of Jeremy Roenicks

Played during lock-out: Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Trevor Lewis, Kyle Clifford, Jordan Nolan, Dwight King, Alec Martinez, Slava Voynov, Jake Muzzin, Jonathan Bernier.
