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…

Suddenly the Kings have nine NHL defensemen

Drew Doughty, Slava Voynov, Matt Greene, Robyn Regehr, Jeff Schultz, Keaton Ellerby, Willie Mitchell, Jake Muzzin and Alec Martinez.

The Kings faced the Blackhawks in one previous playoff series, in 1974. The Blackhawks won the series, 4-1. The Blackhawks…

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…
