Kings one of the teams asked to go to Europe for next season's Premiere games

Was just watching the hotstove on HNIC and they listed 6 teams that have been asked about going to Europe for next season's openers. Others were Washington, Anaheim, NYR, Edmonton and I think Buffalo.

What do you guys think about this?

Here's Lebrun's article that talks about it:http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...harks-coaching

Yeah and they kings don't really have a lot of European's to play in their home countries, unless they plan on playing in Slovenia which I highly doubt.

By all means...DECLINE! We don't need a European hangover to start the season. The team did their turn in the UK, no need to return there for another 10 years.

Well in the NHL's defense, that Kings team sucked horribly.

Regarding this speculation: NOOOOOOOOOO!

I would be happier if we were having one of our best seasons and had clearly established ourselves as Cup Contenders. Then it would just be another part of the experience for the kids. You know what though? I am all for it. Allot of time on the road gives these kids the time to get to know each other better and that is a good thing.

Send em to EU Betty you basketball diva you. Couldn't hurt.

I just remembered this: AEG owns the Berlin arena. Pack your bags...

AEG Also owns about half of all the arena's/stadiums throughout EU and really, the rest of the world too. I am surprised that we play any home games at all.

We aren't exactly making a good case for ourselves to be considered right now... Either way, would probably be beneficial to get overlooked for this one. This team needs less distraction and more hard work.

A game in Slovenia would actually be very interesting, I wouldn't be against that. However, I'd imagine the NHL would want a larger stage; Slovenia does have an arena with about 13,000 capacity.

If they wanted to do a kings "home" game in Slovenia, then 2 days later an "away" game in Berlin travel time wouldn't be all that bad and may be worth it.

I think it's great, I was at both the London games against the ducks. Those have been the only two kings games I've ever seen live. It's great to send the NHL abroad, I just wish they'd come to New Zealand.
