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). At even strength, only Marian Gaborik has a higher goals-per-game than Tyler…

Who Has Been Better Than the Kings This Post-Season?

Nobody. No, that’s not true, really. But I couldn’t resist, given the headline of my last post. Justin Williams was hilarious last night when he said, about digging themselves an 0-3 hole, “let’s make a point never to do that again.” That’s from memory, so that might not be an exact quote. I think a…

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. This was never really totally true, though, since Kevin Westgarth, Simon Gagne, Andrei Loktionov and Davis Drewiske were all moved either before the lock-out-shortened 2013 season started, or before the trade deadline. And Willie Mitchell has yet to play a…

Are the Kings “screwed”? (And is it news?)

I told you all many months ago that the Kings would have to get rid of two of their $3MM+ contracts in order to get under the cap. I gave a short list of (pick two of) Justin Williams, Jarret Stoll, Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene. This was of course long before we all knew…

Who will still be on the Kings in 2013-14?

2013-14, that’s this fall, by the way. The NHL and NHLPA have apparently agreed to allow 2 buy-outs per club for 2013-14. That’s two buy-outs that will not count against the cap. The point is to make it easier for teams to get below the presumed $60 million cap ceiling. I don’t know what other…

Shorter RudyKelly, and looking into AHL streaming

Because there is a lock-out coming and because I don’t have anything better to do, I took RudyKelly’s even-handed and well-reasoned commentary ont he “on-going” CBA negotiations, and ran it through Microsoft Word’s auto-summarize tool. I told Word to reduce it to a ten sentence summary. This is the result. RudyKelly: F the Owners Hey, owners: fuck…
