Most of the Kings are younger and our roster wasn't affected much by the 04-05 lockout, but there are a few. Justin Williams, Willie Mitchell, Jarret Stoll, two of your prime years and prime earning potential years just flushed down the toilet.

Hope it was worth it guys.
That's a very good point. Most of those guys you listed will have lost years off both ends of their respective primes. I don't see how they think that's worth it.

One of the most annoying things for me in this whole mess is the players who weren't even in the NHL last lockout complaining about how the owners "won" the last one, as if that's some justification to sacrifice their careers now.
