If we really tank the season - maybe but I doubt it." So which is it? And, why even bother mentioning that the Kings will miss the playoffs when your crystal ball says they'll definitely make them?
It's also adorable how my support of a former Kings player makes me less of a Kings fan or that me being a Dodger fan is somehow against the rules of being a true Kings fan. Funny how newer fans think they get to draw up the guidelines somehow.
You saying that I'm always negative just shows you don't really read posts too often, as does you asking me to tell you how Lombardi gets fired. Amazing how you quote my post without even reading it; the answer to your question is right in there. And I'll try to hold back my tears at being referred to as not good company. I'm sure good company must be those who don't read posts and can't remember what they said from one post to the next. It truly breaks my heart not to be part of that group.
And only a Lombardi homer would say Doughty wasn't the obvious #2 pick. Who was #2 in central scouting for the longest period of time? Show me the experts who felt that Doughty wouldn't get selected when he did.
I think it's almost a foregone conclusion that they're gonna take Drew Doughty.
I guess I need to spell it out for you. What I want to happen and what I think TL will do are two (2) completely different things. That was the point in my first post that you didn't grasp. I was saying that if the Kings miss the playoffs I don't think Tim Leiweke fires him and even if we tank I'm not sure TL fires him then. That was my opinion of what I think TL will do - none of that was what I want to have happen to DL. I was speculating on something entirely different that you failed to get. I'm sorry that I took a Hemmingway approach and left it a little vague. Pretty simple stuff. Go back and re-read what I wrote and maybe it will make sense to you then.
All this Doughty stuff. Dude, don't get into the draft with me. Tell me how hard it was for DT to draft Kopitar? How many quotes do you need me to get you to let you know that DL seriously wanted to get Bogo? He didn't decide to get Drew until he went to Drew's house and saw the Canadian Junior team sweater hanging on his wall with the Canada side out and not the name side. Then convince me that NHL GM's don't go off the board and draft who they think is the best guy but only go off CSB, ISS or Hockeynews. That will be classic with DL and his first draft of Hickey and where they drafted Moller and the picks of Simmonds and Clifford.
We aren't going to agree because you love to argue. It's that simple.
I replied - shame on me again.
And I read and UNDERSTOOD your post about how expectations are higher and all that. I got it.
