I don't mind this at all. He grew into an All-Star defenseman on the Kings during some very very lean and average years. He was a King for a majority of his career and I wouldn't fault his departure entirely on him (see Tim Leiweke and his meddling along with his henchmen, Kevin Gilmore).

Minor Boarding 07-16-2013 07:45 PM

Not surprised.
And would be a decent guy for that position.

BigBrown 07-16-2013 07:48 PM

I don't really have an opinion about this one way or another. Some will be outraged, I'm sure.

CNS 07-16-2013 07:50 PM

Don't care. Would rather see Futa but if it DOES turn out to be Blake, then so be it. Although I will never forgive him for letting his kids play for the San Jose Jr. Sharks. And HIS years in SJ will be looked upon as someone who went astray but found the path he should have been on eventually.

Johnny Utah 07-16-2013 07:51 PM

Blake has no experience in any front office though....

Reaper45 07-16-2013 07:51 PM

Dumb to not promote Futa or Yanetti. Double dumb that's it's Flake. Buck Flake.

King'sPawn 07-16-2013 07:52 PM

I'm starting to hate this team.

Neither did Hextall when he was hired.

Whatever. I'll support whatever this franchise does. It's my team.

Sacha Baron Corbin 07-16-2013 08:04 PM

Hextall is gone one day and the team goes to hell :laugh:

I don't mind this though I guess, Futa needs to keep running the scouting

Per Wik...

Upon his retirement from playing in 1999, Hextall immediately joined the Philadelphia Flyers' set-up as a Professional Scout. He was promoted to Director of Professional Player Personnel three years later, and was considered by the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame to be a key factor in the success experienced by the Flyers during the early 2000s, when they won the Atlantic Division three times, and reached the Eastern Conference Finals on two occasions

I feel like i've been taking crazy pills since the WCF

Out: Scuderi, Penner, Bernier, Hextall
In: Schultz, Carcillo, Scrivens, Frattin, Blake

Franchise Makeover, LA Kings edition. What did I miss? that was off the top of my head.

Don't know what to think of this one way or the other, though. Seems contrived by Luc.

Good call! I was hoping for Tom Glavine though...or why not John Smoltz or Greg Maddux? Ok, not Greg Maddux...my brother hit a game winning grand slam off him, in the 1985 American Legion Vegas Tournament....and had an RBI single in the at bat before.

Blake? I don't see him as being committed to the level Hextall was, helping at Manch in the trenches and nurturing the players there...and being tough with them as well. Dean is all about culture and Hextall was too and they preached and taught that. I just don't see Blake as that type of tireless worker and getting to know the players at Ontario, Manchester and the league as well. I could be wrong.

Winger23 07-16-2013 08:35 PM

Sigh. I don't want that guy anywhere near the kings anymore. Seriously if he gets the job then I'm not sure what to think anymore. Couldn't go to a more undeserving guy. He has no damn experience.

deeshamrock 07-16-2013 08:37 PM

It's just her opinion, she is not speaking on behalf of the Kings. It's not a move Dl will rush into and he'll have candidates to pick from that have experience.

oh please no
