He's a very good player, and I actually still wish we still had him, but he's certainly lost a step and had the Kings not won the Cup, he would be criticized to no end for failing to live up to expectations in LA.
I don't know, LA's not a hockey crazed market & they're not really a team people love to hate on. It definitely wouldn't have went over well in Toronto but I can't see it as much in LA.
