Yahoo's #1 Failure

Not pretty

Take a look at Ross McKeon's Analysis - Playoff Picture: Failures

Looking back at the Stuart trade, funny that L.A. gets a "D+" grade and Detroit gets a "D" when it's basically the only trade each team made.

They probably gave them those grades based on not what they got but the opportunities they missed out on. The Kings could have traded away more people while Detroit could have gone after better players.

Does this guy even have a ****ing clue about the Kings? Didn't bring young players up for a look at mid-season? Yes cause Boyle, Purcell, Harrold and Moulson never played a game for the Kings this year. It must of just been an optical illusion. Haven't made progress? Has he even paid attention to this team after Christmas? This guy actually gets paid for the crap that he spews?

Can you call it progress?
I mean...We were the worst in the NHL then, and now, well...

Relax. You act like it's a huge insult that he doesn't know your team as well as you, never mind the fact that he has to cover the 29 other teams equally as well (something which I doubt any of us could do). Speaking of progress, the Blues in the second half of last season and the Coyotes since November are progress, not what the Kings have done since Christmas, which is stay at the bottom of the league.

At Christmas, we were the 2nd worst team in the NHL, now we're the worst team in the NHL

I'm sorry, HOW did we get better?

Addition by subtraction. Gain through loss. Success through failure.

Truth hurts. Funny, I knew that all the responses were going to be about how he knows nothing and everyone else is wrong... because DL is our savior... LOL

It's so saddening to me to see DL terribly mismanage this team that DT left loaded with promise and assets.


What was the point in trading Stuart and Modry for nothing? Can anyone explain this to me?


DL SUCKS!


(now you guys can all get mad at me and claim that it is for any other reason than that you don't like my opinions)

I'll probably regret this, but...

Nothing would be what DL would have gotten when Modry and Stuart walked at the end of the season. What, exactly, would have been the point of keeping them? A better shot at being 29th?

That 2nd round pick for Stuart has a pretty good chance of becoming a regular for the Kings (about 17% roughly). The non-pick we would have gotten from Stuart walking wouldn't have been as good (0%).

It's now a year later. What happened to that progress?
