Not pretty, but not unexpected. They looked better in the 3rd but by that time it was of course too late. Pretty par for the course for Kings afternoon games the last few years, so I'm not too worried. Quick looked shaky but again, first game, short training camp, whatever. I agree that we need Mitchell back asap, but I'm not sure if that's gonna happen. A few other random thoughts:
- New guy was fine, but it was weird without David Courtney. The tribute they did for him was nice.
- I find it odd that the new banners for the retired numbers don't use the font that was actually used on the particular jerseys. It's just some random font...
- Watching the Kings without Kopitar is just odd. In fact the whole experience was just strange. I dunno. No Kopi, no David Courtney, Late season start... It just didn't feel like a real game. Hopefully the team gets over that way quicker than I do.
- This is where I miss Hammond. Would like to hear what some of the players thoughts were after today's game.
Oh well, onto Vancouver!
