I am probably going to get flamed for this but, how can an organization teach its prospects/players what winning is about when this franchise (LA KINGS) revels in mediocrity?
Since this ownership has taken over, the kings have advanced only once in the playoffs. I know injuries play a big part, but when you have 3 1st round picks and prospects and you don't make a deal to better the club, there's a big problem. Then the organization is forced to make bad deals because of fan pressure. When fans are happy to see Army come back from an injury, there is something wrong. I love Army, he is a solid 3-4 line player.
Yes, I know the CBA had a lot to do with it as well. TL & DT have said the current CBA does not work for them and there was not a level playing field. They are going to get their cap/budget. This is what they were waiting for. They are sitting pretty right now. I expect immediate results once this CBA mess is over with. They forced this crap down our throats for many years. It is time to make good on it. There will be a lot teams looking to dump good/superstar (potential) players the kings can pick up for relatively cheap. They have the resources, roster players and prospects to make a good deal or 2.
