Taking back Dustin Brown for Ryan Miller is a Benning kind of move, though.


you are so right, you just ruined my morning with the thought of it. He'd probably throw in a draft pick just to sweeten the deal for LA

Mulling over Pavelec's salary, I'm sure. Jets would need to take some back.

Kings officially eliminated from the playoffs. I obviously have some very mixed feelings about Jarome Iginla's recent stint in Colorado but super-bummed nonetheless that one of the best players to ever take the ice in my lifetime will likely retire never having lifted the Cup.

What happened to Kopitar? Only 12 goals and 49 points. Has his body taken too much over the years?

Huh...did not expect the Kings to start this strong with virtually the same lineup as last year. Kopitar and *gasp* Dustin Brown look reinvigorated, and Adrian "Flow" Kempe looks like a find.

And one of my all-time faves, Mike Cammalleri is still scoring goals. Unfortunately he has to wear 14 because Kyle effing Clifford is wearing 13. Just give it to him!

No playoffs, no World Cup, no Olympics coming up.

I think the team just had a chance to catch its breath.

Looks like the Kings are righting the ship somewhat with 86 points and 9 games to play. Big OT win over the Mild tonight, Carter with a pair and 8 goals in 8 games since his return from the the skate laceration which has kept him out for most of the season.

Quick is still a bit of an adventure in goal. One game he looks all world - the next he looks like a wandering melody. Would love to see them face Vegas in round 1.

Vegas v LAK in the playoffs would set up an amazing rivalry for years to come.

Doughty will likely spend his career a King: 8 year/88M extension until 2027.

As for the rest of the team, they added another old guy in Kovalchuk. Will their thirtysomethings (Ilya, Anze, Brown, Carter, Dion, Lewis, Martinez, Thompson, Quick, Budaj) be enough?

They've got three guys in their primes (Pearson, Toffoli, Forbort) and a few young guns (Kempe, Iafallo, Brickley, Rempal, Eyssimont) and some legit prospects in Vilardi, Clague and Anderson-Dolan.

Not sure this group has one more run in them. Hope Quick, Kopitar, Kovalchuk and Doughty hang on long enough for Vilardi and JAD to come in and reshape the team.

I have a feeling Kupari will be a solid addition as well in time.

I think this team's just gotten too stale, hopefully for Blake's sake the new blood really starts to take over. It'd help if they got a full year out of Carter this go-around as well.

We all know the core can still play -- Doughty (28), Anze (30), Carter (33) and Quick (32). Whether or not they have enough young talent surrounding them remains to be seen. Brown has had one good season based on the departure of Sutter, but he really shouldn't be relied on for any sustained offense. Kovalchuk was a curious signing but reports are that he's still able to produce at a high level. The NA game has changed since he was last in the NHL. Should be fun to see how their season unfolds first hand.

Less than a year after it was announced, the "Offensive Coordinator" experiment has come to an end. Pierre Turgeon decided against returning for another season.
