The loss of Mitchell and Greene are having an impact. Let's give Sutter and the boys a chance to figure this out before we start going nuts.
I can tell you this, even with winning the cup Dean never stopped or stops looking for ways to improve the hockey club's player personnel. It's a little too early in the season to be too discouraged.
I agree it's early, but it's certainly OK to be discouraged now. I agree the Kings have played some excellent hockey of late, but they are still losing.
Borrowing from Quisp who does a good job taking the good with the bad...
Going back to the arrival of Gretzky (1988), the Kings have had fewer than 8 points after ten games only once. In 2009 (the year we finished fifth from last and drafted Brayden Schenn).
Since 1988, the Kings had 8 points after ten games five times.
They made the playoffs once out of those five. 2001-2002. (So I guess that’s the first bit of good news?)
The Kings are currently in 14th place, second to last, in both the official and in my points-blown standings.
However, in points-blown, they are only 2 points-blown out of 7th place. (So that’s the second bit of good news.)
The Kings have the worst 5-on-5 save-percentage in the league."
