Unfortunately, it says so much about the Kings and how important they are to the sports media of this town. Although I am sure that it was someone behind the scenes who made the mistake, Jim Hill should be embarassed!
I remember watching the news and seeing that on channel 2 right after I had come back from the game.. I couldnt stop laughing..
I always had a lot of respect for Jim Hill growing up in LA, but if you are a sportscaster, you really should know more about ALL of the teams in your city. It is painful when he tries to pronounce the names of the players and use hockey terms to describe the highlights.
At least a guy like Barry LeBrock, Fred Roggin, the late Stu Nahan, or VanEarl Wright (as bad as he was) can actually show a little bit of hockey knowledge.
Ryan Smyth is without a doubt the slowest and worst skating player in the NHL. The only other player I can think of who was a worse skater than Smyth is Charlie Huddy. An outright ugly skaters who could barely move out there and is slowly becoming obsolete.
