The good news is the current crop of Kings players are on pace to push Rob Blake's legacy further down the list of importance in Kings history.
If the NHL would let them play most of the Kings will be represented in the all time stats within about 5 years. The Kings just were not a good organization for the majority of their existence and that's reflected in the stats. This current Kings team should be all over the stats page like white on lice.
