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…

Kings Quickie Roundtable 2013

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…

Why I prefer to just say no to Doan

Going into next season with the roster intact (which, by the way, is some kind of miracle) is a silver lining inside a cloud no-one is talking about yet. The conventional wisdom is that a huge contributing factor to Stanley Cup hangover is the fact that the team has just played 100+ games compared to most teams’ 82, and have had only a few weeks to recover, compared to half a year. Players are banged up. Old players, exponentially so.

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?

2011-2012 Kings Prospects Scoring, Adjusted

Since you already have 59 different places to go for traditional team stats, I decided to do something different. A few years back, behindthenet calculated conversion multipliers to be used to “translate” scoring stats from one league into equivalent NHL numbers. The idea being, for example, that one goal in NCAA is the rough equivalent, in terms of difficulty of 0.41 goals in the NHL. Obviously, there’s lots of room to disagree with the specific numbers, but I’m willing to play along. Here are the numbers behindthenet came up with:

LA Kings Draft History

Every player and pick in LA Kings draft history. Sort by draft position, round, goals, assists. Doughty, Hickey, Schenn, Quick, Brown, Kopitar (more)

LA Kings Reserve List

The LA Kings Reserve List shows every player / prospect. Sort by cap hit, draft, contract status, age. Also: 50 Contract Limit explanation, roster rules.
