Yeah, was just about to post your edit there.
Some great names in the honorable mentions.
In regard to the list, one common theme runs through all of the names, and that is all of spent a long time in a Kings jersey. There are many players who went through the Kings lineup that are in the Hall of Fame now, mostly making their mark on other teams but also did some good while here.
Nice to see all the old videos, brings back memories. The Goring goal was in game 6 of the Boston series...its too bad that the video cut off Bob's celebration, as he uttered his famous line "We are going back to Boston! We are going back to Boston!"
I take exception to one of the things the writer said: Dionne was acquired by giving up two outstanding Kings, Terry Harper and Dan Maloney...it was definitely not a "steal" for the Kings...and those two guys were real character guys, two guys I grew up watching.
The writer must be a young guy.
