Unfortunately, the Kings may be in a similar position of the Blackhawks a few seasons ago: they did not start competing / being a real NHL presence until their owner died. After Wurtz passed, the entire team turned it around. Geez, I just read this am that Chi had only 3000 STH in the last year of Wurtz' ownership/management.

As long as AEG owns the Kings, expect more disappointment in "roster building" ... and in results...
