Lately you can literally see him developing into an NHL power forward.

Maybe Kings fans are not all stupid and rah rah rah and beating people to pulps after the games or something [like at some other sports games in LA] ??

Anyway, if you go to just about any sports bar in LA they are showing more golf than hockey. And the hockey fans that I have met in LA bars are not Kings fans- not even one. And the only King that anyone knows by name is Simmonds. So yea, I think SoCal NHL teams need to do better local/feet-on-the-street marketing of their own teams. LA just has more going on than hockey that competes for attention - unlike many other backwaters. Just putting up nice looking billboards in an attempt to brand the identities of certain players ain't gonna cut it.

BTW, from a marketing perspective, if the Kings ever think of trading Simmonds they are done stupid [a fact that I'm sure is not wasted on Simmonds].

My major disappointment in last night's game was the team's ability to finish. Simmonds all alone in front with a chance to make it 2-0 in the 1st period, multiple turnovers by the Ducks right in the slot in their own zone near the end of the 2nd period and the Kings can't bury one to go up 2-1.

Maybe guys are just gripping the stick too tight right now. Ellis was certainly nothing special.

3 years of no finish, brother. We are like a badly fermented wine. Still, I love the D and goaltending and just need some players to get hot...or in Penner's case, wake the **** up.
