New Kings fan here

So I moved to San Diego from Florida early this year to start a job. I am originally from Boston and I am a huge Bruins fans. With that said, I like to have a local team to root for and I love the makeup of the Kings. I'm not really a bandwagon guy so never saw myself rooting for the Ducks or Sharks. I plan on watching the Kings on TV whenever I can. I plan to still watch all the Bruins games I can as well, and I'm contemplating going for Center Ice this year to watch the B's, but I'm actually kind of pumped to follow a different franchise for a while.

Anyway, with the Kessel trade I have kind of a sour taste in my mouth right now with regard to the Bruins. I love the B's and recognize that the kid made it impossible for them to keep him, but I can't help but feel things could have gone down better for the B's. Kessel to a long-time division rival and smug ******* like Burke just kind of makes me sick to my stomach. I really would have liked to see the Bruins get Dustin Brown but that would never happen so I'll just watch him on the Kings instead.

Anyway, looking forward to some hockey!

It's kinda funny because you are the opposite of me. I totally love the Kings but live in Boston. I watch just about every Bruins game and as many Kings games as I can. Enjoy Kings hockey!

There's plenty of room on the bandwagon.

interestingly enough, you're going to find a couple of Bruins/Kings fans 'round here.

We used to trade with them so much, it just happens.

I like that even a Bruins' fan comes to California, takes a look around, wondering what's the best hockey to watch; Sees the Ducks, laughs; Sees the Sharks, cringes; Sees the Kings, feels right at home.

Welcome home. You were never here, but it felt like you never left.

Enjoy your time with the Kings, which any of us can tell you, will never end.

It probably has something to do with Manchester fans as well.

That's exactly what I was thinking. This trade can be a huge blessing in disguise. As well as the Bruins are put together, they'll be re-stocking the farm system and have good young players to plug into the big club for at least the near future.

Hey Russ, welcome to the Kings and if your team wants to get back a Burke, just draft well.
