Yeah, Blake was from the outside looking in a crappy teammate that only cared about himself (and surfing) and that on two occasions went out of his way to "turn the knife" on Kings fans and wave a middle finger at them. The Kings need to distance themselves from the "Dark Age" of Kings hockey and having anything to do with Blake is counter productive to that. Let Kopitar, Quick, Doughty, or Brown be the next number that gets put up in the rafters (hopefully.)

If Blake does make the HOF then that alone is enough recognition of what he accomplished as a player.
