ESPN Los Angeles interviewed DL

http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angele...ory?id=4887101

Nothing that none of us don't already know, but still fun to read some of DL's quotes.

""We're building like the Twins and the Oakland A's," he said, "but I want to keep them like the Yankees. I said that from day one: I didn't come here to be the Oakland A's. Screw that. Be somebody else's minor league system? No thanks."

On a side note, it's the first article related to the Kings on this new espn los angeles site, good to see.

Hopefully some of these quotes will ease KINGS17`s mind.

"I'm not going to watch Doughty walk out of here on an offer sheet," he said, "or Kopitar or Johnson or Quick and these guys. No way. We've come too far to let that happen.


There you go !

Excellent read. Looks as if he's willing to spend the money over a longer period of time to cut down on the cap hit.

As I said in another thread, he gets less than Ovie, Crosby & Malkin.

DL is gold. Even though he says the same thing over and over it still gives me goose bumps. He has a passion for the sport and for his team. I loved the part about his core players...This guy will bring us the cup.

That's one of the main reasons I like him as much as I do. He lives and breathes Kings hockey. I know he's thinking 24x7 of how to make the team better, and as a fan.. I can't ask for more than that.

As repetitious as he gets - he's repetitious because he's so open with us about how he's building the team. It's good that he's a broken record because it means he's communicating with the fan base well (if we've all heard these things before, then he's doing his job communicating well) and he's sticking to the plan.

Even though parts of this interview are old news, he almost always sprinkles in some nuggets, and it's azlways good to hear that the purse strings are wide open for him to make a Kovalchuk deal if it doesn't decimate the team. There's a lot of reasons the Kings may not land Kovalchuk. Money isn't one of them so long as it fits in the cap system. Many GM's in the league don't have that kind of green light from ownership.

I love it. You have to love his models and descriptions. At least he is up front and follows through on his promises to us and doesn't waver. Keep it up Deano!

In DL I trust - we are being built right, you can see the players gaining confidence and chemistry in their play. It is a sight to see and enjoy, know we are not close to the promise land yet but it is nor far off.
