I think you're right, but I'm curious about the signs that we collectively ignored. What do you think were the most telling indicators of mental fragility?

What stands out most to me are the two (or was it three?) major losing streaks this season.

Terry sends out Handzus and Stoll on the 5 on 3!

And Stoll prompty does what he has done his entire tenure on the Kings. Fire a point blank scoring chance wide.

Well played Terry Murray. That decision just sums it up perfectly. You are a moron

seriously.. wtf was that 5 on 3 ?

Why are we shooting from the point on a 5 on 3 and not trying back door passes?

This has to be the stupidest ****ing franchise top to the bottom in the history of the league.

Maybe the Rangers will beef the talks like we did with Kovalchuk. I heard he does like the warm weather.
Wont have the cap room with Penner and Drew with a raise. At least I think they don't Smyth is still on the books as well.

Losing streaks, constantly giving up goals right after scoring, constantly not being able to finish games in regulation...

And I don't even know what that 5 on 3 was.

Not really. How many "good" saves has he even had tonight?

2 man advantage and no Richardson.

Nice job coach. No reward for the hardest working King?

I don't even know what to say, it's so hard not to be negative at this point. I just feel like with this current roster and TM we're not going to win anything. I wish I could stop caring about the Kings, but I can't. On top of that, October is so far away.

even if LA was Richards choice im sure DL would find a way to screw things up.

I've got a feeling Lombardi has his eye on Simon Gagne. Just a hunch!

Murray is perfect for getting to the shootout. His secret weapon that gets him to the playoffs.

Good job Westgarth, one guy who hasn't been an idiot mentally can have their bit of fun gooning it up and it doesn't bother me.

Murray will be here next season. He was saved as soon as Kopitar was injured.

Stoll is a real enigma. With a shot that good, why does he struggle to reach 20 goals? The guy is money in the shootout, you'd think his offensive strategy would be pretty simple:

10 get open
20 shoot
30 go to 10

... Sometimes, the better team wins.

Most times, the better-coached team wins.

Smart decision. Otherwise, the game would have ended 7-3
