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…

Kings forwards, QUALCOMP and plus/minus numbers

QUALCOMP – Kings Forwards (who faces the toughest opponents): Parse Kopitar Smyth Richardson Brown Purcell Ivanans Stoll Williams Simmonds Frolov Handzus Lewis Moller Notice that the Handzus line is still facing the weakest competition, counter-intuitive if you believe they are really our checking line (I don’t). Toughest assignments are going to the #1 unit. The…

Parse!

Now what? I’m thinking: Smyth/Kopitar/Simmonds Parse/Stoll/Williams Frolov/Handzus/Brown Clune/Richardson/Purcell Assuming Williams is back sometime soon, and same for Clune.  

Scott Parse is Getting His Shot

I have been rooting for this kid for three years now. This time last year, I was crossing my fingers that he would have a great camp and crack the line-up. That was wishful thinking, but what he did do was put together a solid, complete season in Manchester and managed not to get inj***d.…

When is Your Checking Line Not Your Checking Line?

I just noticed something fascinating in the Kings exotic stats numbers from the first four games. Actually, I noticed it after game three, but put off mentioning it because I thought maybe it was statistical white noise. I still think it might be. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me back up. We all…

“NO TURN-BACKS!” — from comments section of “Teachable moment?” @ LA Kings Insider

Here is commenter wavesinair’s report on (yesterday’s?) practice, cut/pasted in full: Here’s what happened… Richardson, who Murray calls “Richie,” was the offensive player and carried the puck behind the goal with Purcell on his tail. As Richardson passed the goal and was nearing the corner he cut and went back behind the net in the…

Random Thoughts

Smyth/Kopitar/Williams Frolov/Moller/Brown Purcell/Stoll/Lewis Clune/Handzus/Simmonds Waive Ivanans and Richardson; make a trade for a legitimate enforcer; roll four lines; teach Kopitar to hit the net. I wonder how many goals Loktionov is going to have to rack up before he gets the call despite the fact that he’s got the body of a 12 year old.…

[FLASHBACK 10/6/2007] Tonight’s lines – Inside the Kings

Brown-Kopitar-Cammalleri Calder-Armstrong-Frolov Nagy-Handzus-Willsie O’Sullivan-Murray-Ivanans Visnovsky-Blake Stuart-Preissing Modry-Johnson Bernier LaBarbera Tonight’s lines – Inside the Kings. 7 out of 12 forwards from ’07 are gone. Instead of Cammalleri, Calder and Armstrong, we have Smyth, Williams, Stoll and Purcell. On D, on D, 5 of 6 are gone. Only Johnson remains. In goal, well…
