i always hated the stars. Especially Ott. I think it's really Ott I just can't stand so I'm always thrilled when they lose

I think that was a different team back then. The Kings are play with a whole lot of confidence right now and I think they finally found their identity...thank gawd.

I was very surprised by the outcome of the MIN & COL game.

Phoenix up 2-0 on SJ
Detroit up 1-0 on Nashville
Anaheim up 2-1 on Columbus

Really doesn't matter who wins these, just don't want them to go to OT.

If the Phoenix-SJ score holds up, the Kings can move into 1st place in the Pacific with a win tonight.

This is what we like to call the kiss of death.

Phoenix wins 2-1 and Dan Boyle looks like he hurt his shoulder in the final seconds.

Nashville looks like they are going to win again, at Columbus. I am shocked, I remember seeing them play in Anaheim and they looked headed for a Top 5 pick, then they came into Staples and won a Saturday afternoon game and have gone from there.

As for Columbus, you gotta figure the Hitchcock watch could be on if they keep struggling.

Ever since that Scuderi incident and seeing their fans be such ****** on here, I've been hoping to see CBus fail miserably. Hopefully they keep heading down the standings.

Detroit beats Phoenix 3-2. Wings have now won 3 in a row.

And Dave, you don't have to tell me how arrogant and annoying the fans are in that town, I hope they finish DFL in the conference.

GO KINGS

Who would think a game featuring Garon and Labarbera would be a 1-1 draw after regulation.

yeah the stars suck...

but it needs to be said that the Thrasher's defense is pretty much terrible. Whoever meets them in the playoffs will have an easy 4-5 games

... Yeah, LaBarbera made 38 saves and beat Garon in the shootout, which has to be impossible because a few self-proclaimed internet experts spent all day saying he sucked and using cutting-edge burns like LOLbarbera.

Well...no one hated Garon more than me. I still think he was the main reason the Kings collapsed in 05-06.

That said..Labarbera is an awful goaltender, I think he is a bit better than Garon, but I am happy both are no longer a part of this team.

Garon is twice the goalie that Labarbera is.

Yes, because one game makes a career.

... Well, let's see:

Garon's career Sv%: .904
LaBarbera's career Sv%: .904

Anything else?

That kinda detracts from your argument that LaBarbera is better, doesn't it?

Garon has at least been an acceptable starter at points in his career.

Laberbera had a hot streak in 05-06, a hot streak in 07, and that's it. That and a bunch of AHL MVP's is basically the sum of his entire career.

Both are awful career backups that the Kings tried to sell as starters, lets just leave it at that.

Just be thankful we finally found a goaltender.

... I said in the other thread that they're about the same. LaBarbera was better as a King than Garon was, though. This nonsense about how Garon is "twice" the goalie LaBarbera or whatever is just that -- nonsense.

I definitely don't agree with Garon being two times better, but I have a hard time arguing LaBarbera is better.
