Every player has slumps, but this crap repeated season after season is getting old. If Kopitar doesn't shake this pattern the Kings will have a tough time being a high playoff seed in any season.



As soon as DL does what? WTH does being on a line with Brown and Richardson have to do with Kopitar's lack of willpower to take the puck to the center of the ice in the attacking zone?
Agreed. This goes with the whole accountability thing. Players like Brown and Kopitar are allowed to go through prolonged slumps and they never have to face the fire. Once King players leave the rink they can blend into society because in LA nobody knows who they are. Not the case in the bigger markets. It's still too easy to play here.
