Matt Luff has also been a bright spot. 4 straight games with a goal as a rookie filling in for Hagelin.

My God...Vancouver must have broken Willie’s mind. His comments on Kovalchuk were...yeesh.

Totally those comments were way offside. Dude is an offensive producer, period. 9 mins of ice time tonight though, so he's on the up and up.....

But man, the Canucks sure got Willie D'd tonight in a 2-1 OT road win. What a fugly mucker game. Willie is very limited as a coach mind and will do whatever it takes to slow down the game and clog the neutral zone into a snore fest. So lame. The Kings have now found a way to grind out some wins. Quick back and will likely play the next game in Edmonton, although they don't really need him.

Gabe Vilardi ruled out for the WJC tournament.

If this kid plays even one NHL game it'll be a small miracle. Dude is the hockey equivalent of Greg Oden.

Oh boy...Quick gets taken out by Dion Phaneuf, Canes score, and Willie decides not to challenge for goalie interference. Quick does NOT like that decision and lets his coach know.

Kinda sad that given the complete arbitrary-ness of the rulings, Willie probably should have challenged, even though it was clearly Phaneuf being a moron that caused the "interference" to begin with.

This team has almost 9M in cap space. Crickets in LA LA Land. They stink, but they've got prospects coming. Vilardi, unfortunately, is still rehabbing his messed up back and won't be in rookie camp.

Also, the Kings made a big push for NCAA UFAs and none of them have worked out so far. That's Brickley, Rempal, Eyssimont, most notably. Hopefully Lizotte isn't another.

Lottery team? Quick comeback?

Quicksand Lottery Pick. Jack Campbell's the man.

For a minute there I thought they'd find themselves in the "Florida" spot--not good enough to make the playoffs but not bad enough to get a good pick either.

But on second thought, I think they're a lottery team again, and are fully prepared for that scenario.

One guy I just can't figure out: What the hell happened to Tyler Toffoli? That dude was well on his way to being a perennial 30-goal scorer when his game just completely fell off a cliff about a year-and-a-half ago.

Kopitar dropped 30 points and Carter put up 33. Not exactly primo guys dishing to him anymore.

Wonder what Prokhorkin will do this season.

Ben Hutton finally finds a home and signs 1 year $1.5M deal with Kings. Could be good value but might just be meh.

Teams were not fooled by the high ice time: this guy is borderline.
