How did these Kings get here in the first place?

None of the eleven players mentioned were undrafted UFA signings, although Lombardi has gone that route several times, most notably with Matt Moulson and Teddy Purcell (since departed), Martin Jones, Kevin Westgarth and Davis Drewiske.

Here’s how the current Kings got here, in order of arrival:

A BETTER GUIDE TO HATING THE KINGS

In the spirit of friendship, and because this whole thing is probably about to go to hell in a hand-basket, and because Chuck Berry is from St. Louis and Chuck Berry is Rock and Roll, I thought I would lend a hand in completing the guide to Kings hating put together by SB Nation’s St.…

Purcell is not making Kopitar Suck

If you are reading this you have already read the other Kings blogs and you have seen the irate comments venting all over Ted Purcell. Ted Purcell is lost. Ted Purcell falls down. Ted Purcell is not NHL calibre. Ted Purcell shouldn’t be on the first line. Ted Purcell has naked pictures of Terry Murray.…

Maybe it’s a familiarity that goes back at least five years, when Tavares, the emerging hockey phenom, was playing lacrosse and hockey with Moulson’s younger brother Chris in the Toronto suburb…

A self-serving review of Parse parsing

  July 8, 2008 Quisp said: I’m kind of hoping for a Trevor Lewis, Scott Parse, Alec Martinez surge. Martinez’s name obviously has been mentioned a bit lately, but Lewis and Parse have become (unless I’m missing something) all but forgotten… July 9, 2008 Quisp said: My own preferred wishful thinking is that one of…

[FLASHBACK 10/?/2008] Lines and pairings – Inside the Kings

Here’s how the Kings skated today: Moulson-Kopitar-Brown Frolov-Stoll-Moller Calder-Handzus-Simmonds Ivanans-Armstrong-Richardson Patrick O’Sullivan and Brian Boyle were the “spare” players today in the green jerseys, but these lines are likely to shift a bit when O’Sullivan is ready. It’s more stable on defense: Johnson-Greene O’Donnell-Doughty Gauthier-Preissing via Lines and pairings – Inside the Kings. Up front, 6…
